About Jindabyne

Located on the road to Kosciuszko National Park and perched on the edge of a meandering lake, Jindabyne and its surrounding towns in the Snowy Mountains make a great base for exploring the region. This area inspired the legendary poems and stories of the mountain horsemen who were most famously immortalised in Banjo Paterson's 1890 poem, The Man from Snowy River.

Jindabyne is a picturesque base for skiers, snowboarders and adventurers. Local towns Berridale, Adaminaby and Dalgety offer plenty of things to see and do, as well as ample restaurant and accommodation options to suit visitors of all ages, lifestyles and budgets. They're also great places to hire everything you need for the snow from fashion to equipment.

In winter, the local snowfields within Kosciuszko National Park- Thredbo, Perisher Valley, Charlotte Pass and Selwyn Snowfields become busy.

In summer, check out other options that include abseiling, rock-climbing, mountain bikinghorse riding and fly fishing tours and lessons.
