Perisher Valley

Perisher Valley has its roots in the early pioneer days, when graziers used the surrounding valleys for summer pasture. The name Perisher is steeped in mystery, the myths surrounding its origin stem from the graziers attempting to rescue livestock trapped in the high country.

Braving the full force of the blizzard as they crested The Gap, the feeling among the graziers were – “This is truly a perisher!”
