Once a booming Gold Rush town, Adelong’s tree-lined streets are quieter nowadays, with a number of impressive heritage buildings classified by the National Trust. Nestled into the foothills of Kosciuszko National Park, Adelong is a unique destination where warm country hospitality meets spectacular alpine scenery.
Enjoy a cosy couples’ retreat with today’s Groupon for Beaufort House:

Beaufort House is a heritage-listed luxury boutique hotel exuding old world European charm, with guest rooms tastefully furnished in antiques and original paintings. Groupies choose from a huge selection of rooms, each with their own distinct personality, and settle in with a decanter of reserve port including a refill for good measure. Enjoy a sumptuous continental breakfast each morning, and retreat to the old-style Altar Wine Bar to crack open a bottle of local wine after a long day exploring snow country.
Pack a picnic and head out to famous Adelong Falls Gold Mill Ruins, where visitors can take a self-guided walk around the falls and learn about the area’s rich gold mining history. Stroll through the main street of town to admire the gorgeous heritage buildings, perhaps stopping for a hearty meal at Coat of Arms Kaffeehaus Restaurant, the cosy European-style restaurant located within the hotel. Groupies can try excellent cold-climate wines with a private tour of nearby Courabyra Vineyard for $50 per couple, including wine tasting, nibbles and refreshments plus $20 off per half-dozen wines purchased.
Adelong is located halfway between Sydney and Melbourne on the Snowy Mountains Highway. The town is considered the gateway to the Snowy Mountains, and is only a short drive away from other regional attractions like Batlow, Kosciuszko National Park, Yarrangobilly Caves, and the cold-climate vineyards of Tumbarumba.
