GET YOUR CAR READY FOR THE ROAD AHEAD

Majura Park Shopping Centre
Majura Park Shopping Centre | 1 week ago

Living in Canberra in the crisp months of June, July and August can be a real shock! Scraping the ice off your windscreen with a credit card in the very early mornings isn’t super glamorous, but just down the Monaro Highway we have some of the best terrains for skiing and snowboarding in the southern hemisphere.

If you’re packing up the family car and escaping the city for the powdery slopes, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to prep for your weekend at the snow, right here at Majura Park!

 

Car Accessories

Nobody wants to start their day scraping a thick layer of ice off the windscreen, leaving their hands freezing cold and running behind schedule! Autobarn is here to make sure you’re safe on the road with their ceramic heater-defroster and ultra-wiper blades. Simply plug in the defroster and watch it melt the ice away! You can never be too prepared for the snow, especially when it might impact your vision when driving! Pick up wiper blades and a LED light bar from Autobarn to help protect your windscreen and enhance your vision in the rain and snow. Purchase the wipers from Autobarn and the team will help you install them for FREE!

 

Tired tyres?

The roads at the snow can be extremely slippery and challenging to drive on! Make sure you check that your tyres are in a good state before heading further south. Not sure if they require updating? Visit the team at the Costco Tyre Station who will be able to give you the best advice and replace your tyres if necessary. You will require a Costco membership!

 

Fuel up!

It’s just over 200km from Canberra to Kosciusko National Park so after you’ve purchased your snow chains, head to either Caltex or Costco Petrol to fuel up, or plug into one of the many Tesla charging stations located next to McDonalds.

And finally, treat the family to a McDonald’s family box before heading to the slopes.
