Yes. The closest to Port Stephens would be the Barrington Tops which sees snow most seasons. Keep an eye on the local weather reports in July/Aug.

Whilst many areas of the Great Dividing Range do experience snowfalls during severe weather events, it is unpredictable and spaspodic.

You can drive to the Snowy Mountains and experience snowplay without having to purchase ski passes or packages. Affordable accommodation is available in Cooma from where you can drive to the snow. You will have to hire chains for your vehicle unless you have a 4WD and you will have to pay National Park entry fee unless you have an all parks pass. The Cooma Visitors Centre will be able to advise you of the best places to go on any given day you are in the area. If you wait until September or October, the cost will be even less and the weather not so cold.........
