Valley Facilities

During winter there is a doctor in the valley as well as a chemist and the lodge has a St Johns First Aid kit to handle minor incidents.

To date the lodge has been used primarily in winter and the building of a major resort complex, by the Persiher Blue consortium next year, adjacent to the Ski Tube, while not affecting us directly, should result in an increased range of year round activities in the valley beside the usual bush walking, bike riding, etc.


For those wishing to dine out there are a range of top class restaurants, which operate in the valley during the winter season and these are in reasonable walking distance from the lodge.

The lodge is also conveniently located adjacent to many cross country ski trails which wind around the southern and eastern parts of Perisher Valley. These tracks during the summer months are an ideal way to explore the beauty and tranquility of Perisher and the natural environment.

Summer Activities

Kunapipi is not only available for winter activities and the lodge is frequented by hikers and cyclists in the “non-snow” months. The attached photos show a cycling expedition undertaken by Ian Shaw (Treasurer) and friends over an Easter weekend. The cycle rides are great and can be undertaken on sealed as well as unsealed roads, depending on preferences and type of bicycle. The ride to Charlottes’ Pass is a favourite  however riding as far as Mt Kosciusko is an adventure for the keener or more sports-minded cyclist. The days are usually warm but the nights, especially on the edge of seasons can be cold so go prepared for all weather. The ski room makes a great cycle room and can hold 16 bicycles at a pinch. One of the best parts of the summer visits is the summer rates. Much better than any motel, the scenery and facilities at Kunapipi are far superior. Truly to be recommended.
