Berridale

In a pretty rural setting, Berridale is a charming town in the NSW Snowy Mountains near pristine lakes for fishing and Kosciuszko National Park for bushwalking, mountain biking and horseriding. A lovely place to stay in the skiing and snowboarding season, all the snowfields are within easy reach.

You’ll find accommodation options to suit various budgets in and around Berridale, known as the Crossroads of the Snowy in the colonial gold rush when miners passed through on the way to the goldfields. Today, Berridale is a great base for enjoying outdoor adventures throughout the year.

Berridale - Snowy Mountains

The landscapes are striking, with Australia’s highest peaks a spectacular backdrop and huge granite boulders dotting the Monaro Plains. Towering poplars line Berridale’s main street. Lake Jindabyne to the west and Lake Eucumbene to the north are popular for water sports in the warmer months.

For a fun family day out, visit the ecotourism-accredited Eucumbene Trout Farm for a spot of fishing and a farm tour. All the equipment is supplied for a fishing adventure and you can even have the staff prepare your freshly caught trout for cooking on the barbecues in the enchanting picnic area.

There are more delicious experiences in the Jindabyne region, from the Snowy River Vineyard and Microbrewery to the Wildbrumby Distillery. The Berridale Inn dates back to William Oliver, who built it in Berridale in 1863 as his house and store, and was converted into an inn for travellers in 1878.

You can hire in Berridale all the ski and snowboard equipment you need for fun on the snowfields in colder months. The slopes of Thredbo, Perisher, Charlotte Pass and Mount Selwyn are all between 50 and 80 minutes’ drive in good weather from Berridale, which is a scenic drive east of Jindabyne.
