Jindabyne

From thrilling to delicious, Jindabyne is a perfect escape at any time of the year in the NSW Snowy Mountains. On the edge of beautiful Lake Jindabyne, the scenic town offers outdoor adventure, gourmet delights and vibrant nightlife, and is a great base near the snowfields in colder months.

Adventure tours include horseriding, mountain biking, bushwalking, fishing, kayaking and helicopter joy flights around Mount Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest peak. Main Range Backcountry offers alpine guided tours for skiers and snowboarders beyond the snow resorts in the snow-covered wilderness.

Horse Riding in the Snowy Mountains

In warmer months Lake Jindabyne is popular for water sports. The waterway is teeming with fish and is part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme, Australia’s greatest engineering project that creates hydro-electricity. The town was relocated before the old township was flooded in 1967 to create the lake.

You can hire all kinds of equipment in Jindabyne for your adventure holiday. There are shops selling all the essentials too, from kit to fashion. You’ll find plenty of accommodation options in and around Jindabyne, from camping and caravanning to cottages, chalets, apartments, motels and eco-resorts.
