Adventure in Jindabyne
Jindabyne is the closest town to most of the NSW ski fields. It features an expansive artificial lake surrounded by alpine scenery.
Like Adaminaby, modern Jindabyne was created in the late 1960s when the original town was relocated by the Snowy Mountains Authority for the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme. The original town now lies under the waters of Lake Jindabyne. Located 60 km from Cooma, the town attracts trout-fishing enthusiasts as well as winter-sports fans who don't want to stay at the main ski-field resorts. It's only a 30-minute drive to the snowfields from Jindabyne.
