Enjoy outdoor adventures and delicious experiences in the Jindabyne region of the NSW Snowy Mountains. The town of Jindabyne is near Kosciuszko National Park, a winter wonderland for skiing and snowboarding and great for bushwalking, mountain biking and horseriding in warmer months.
This beautiful area inspired poems and stories of the mountain horsemen, immortalised in Banjo Paterson's epic The Man from Snowy River. You can join horseriding tours in the high country, including Snowy Wilderness, Thredbo Valley Horse Riding and Snowy River Horseback Adventure.
You’ll find many more wonderful things to do and exhilarating tours to relish, from wine tasting at a cool-climate winery to fly fishing in crystal-clear waters teeming with trout. You can hire or buy equipment for your adventure too, from skis and snowboards to mountain bikes and fishing rods.
Discover the striking landscapes around Jindabyne on scenic drives to small towns, charming places to stay year-round. On the banks of the Snowy River is Dalgety, once considered a potential site for the nation’s capital. Stop in at the Snowy Vineyard and Microbrewery for wine and beer tasting.
Berridale was known as the Crossroads of the Snowy in the colonial gold rush when miners passed through on the way to the goldfields. Towering poplars line the main street. The Berridale Inn dates back to 1863, when it was built as a house and store, and then it was converted into an inn in 1878.
With a spectacular backdrop of Australia’s highest peaks, pristine waterways such as Lake Jindabyne, and giant granite boulders dotting the Monaro Plains, the region is a postcard escape any time of the year. You’ll find plenty of accommodation options to suit various budgets, from camping to resorts.
Check out the marvellous events calendar, from a music festival in the snow season to traditional country shows such as the Dalgety Show, a delightful family day out. You can see the mountain horseman ride in the thrilling Man from Snowy River Rodeo and in the Dalgety Team Penning.
