Thredbo Ski Resort

“Thredbo is almost exactly five and a half hours from Sydney (certainly not seven) including a short stop for fuel.  Mind you it depends where you start from in Sydney; could be more, could be less.  I live a couple of miles north of the Bridge and drop straight onto the freeway.  With the completion of the highway works currently underway around the Canberra airport the trip...” --sinbad7
