Located in a prime setting offering breath-taking views of Thredbo and the Crackenback Range, near the heart of the Village, Boali Lodge offers comfortable, spacious, bright, mountain accommodation all year round. Its friendly welcoming atmosphere attracts members and guests for weekends, special events and longer stays. In particular it is ideal for families of all ages with its 4 loft rooms.
The fully managed and recently refurbished 14-room Boali Lodge is renowned for its quality dining experience, attractive rooms and central location. The team provide delicious, nutritious meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Close proximity to the Kosciuszko Express Quad Chair provides easy access for winter and summer adventures on Australia's highest mountain and best ski terrain. Outside of the ski season, Thredbo offers a wide range of activities - both physical and cultural.
Located in the spectacular Snowy Mountains of Southern NSW, Boali's home Thredbo Alpine Village is Australia's premier year round mountain retreat. In winter the resort is home to not only Australia's best alpine skiing and boarding but a village atmosphere that's second to none.
As the winter snow melts the beauty of the mountains reveals itself. When the rest of Australia seriously heats up and the grasses burn off Thredbo is ever green with the average daily temperatures ranging from 14-21 degrees. The warm days and cool nights of summer make a perfect climate for a wide variety of activities in summer.
As the closest point of access to Mt. Kosciuszko, Thredbo is the ideal place to begin your exploration of Kosciuszko National Park.
"Our guests love our unique lodge experience and many return year after year. The communal dining set up allows all the local news and adventure tips to be shared across the table and guests often make new lifelong friends," said Maureen French, Chairperson of Boali Lodge.
"Our hospitable team have an understanding of what our winter and summer guests need after a day's skiing or hiking in the mountain air. The lodge menus are richly comforting with beautiful fresh ingredients and mountain flavours that are often a highlight of the stay," Maureen said.
Kylie Hayes has been visiting Boali Lodge for over 20 years and loves the fact that all food is included.
"I always look forward to the food, it's just amazing. It's so expensive to eat out in the snowy mountains, so to have all the meals prepared for you and included in your package is a really affordable and economical option, plus it frees up your time for more relaxing," Kylie said.
"I think the big difference with Boali compared to other lodges is that you're treated to a high end lodge experience. It's not like a hotel - you get to spend your day out enjoying all that Thredbo has to offer knowing you can come home to a delicious lunch and dinner, and the bonus is you get so socialise with the other guests – it's like a home away from home", Kylie said.
Amelia Buchhorn loves escaping from her busy city life to the tranquillity of Boali.
"We usually arrive late on a Friday night after a hectic week at work and it's just great to be able to park right at the front door and not worry about trying to find a car space or catch the shuttle bus. The lodge has a lovely relaxing atmosphere, there's plenty of space for the kids and there's the beautiful lounge with the fire where you can take in the mountain views," Amelia said.
"It's a true holiday in that everything is done for you. Whereas with other lodges you have to self cater and bring your own linen we love the fact that we only need to bring our suitcase and that everything else is taken care of."
THE FACTS - Dining
