Travel Guide
Jindabyne

Go bushwalking, caving, fishing, mountain climbing and skiing at this lakeside town and major gateway to the spectacular Snowy Mountains.

Jindabyne is an adventure activity destination surrounded by the alpine landscapes of the Snowy Mountains. See its inspiring natural landscape, ranging from Australia’s tallest mountain to creeks, lakes, rivers and wildflower meadows. Get active in Jindabyne with enthralling outdoor pursuits, enjoy beautiful panoramas, visit galleries and tour a nearby distillery and vineyard.

Find the town on the southern shores of Lake Jindabyne, a vast reservoir fed by the Snowy River. Its original location now rests beneath the waters. Jindabyne moved to its current location in the 1960s following the construction of Jindabyne Dam. Eerie relics of the old town are visible when water levels are low. Get superb lake views at Banjo Paterson Park, Foreshore Park and Waste Point Lookout.

Perched on the eastern edge of the town is Kosciuszko National Park, the heart of the Snowy Mountains. Get brochures, maps and park passes at the Snowy Region Visitor Centre.

Year-round, take a scenic ride on the Kosciuszko Express Chairlift to the 7,310-foot (2,228-meter) tall Mount Kosciuszko. A hiking trail climbing to the mountain summit passes alpine meadows and striking rock formations. Watch young salmon and trout swarming the waters of the Gaden Trout Hatchery and step into the 440-million-year-old Yarrangobilly Caves. Discover more of the park’s beauty along trails such as the Blue Waterholes Trail, Cascade Hut Trail, Rainbow Lake Walking Track and Sawpit Walking Track.

Visit Kosciuszko National Park from June to October for some of Australia’s best skiing opportunities. Find groomed slopes, snow parks and toboggan runs at Charlotte Pass, Perisher Valley, Selwyn Snowfields and Thredbo.

See attractions in Jindabyne’s surrounding villages. Browse art exhibits at the Grosvenor Kunama Galleries in East Jindabyne and Ray Killen Gallery in Berridale. Sample award-winning gin and schnapps at the Wildbrumby Schnapps Distillery in Crackenback. Sip fruity wines at Snowy Vineyard and Microbrewery in Dalgety.

Reach Jindabyne on an intercity bus from Canberra. Alternatively fly from Sydney to Cooma Snowy Mountains Airport and catch a shuttle bus or rent a car.
