Anyone looking for a perfect excuse to take in stunning natural scenery and fascinating works of art won’t want to miss the Lake Light Sculpture in the scenic Snowy Mountains.

This free event is well worth visiting twice – once in the day to take in the sculptures against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Jindabyne, and again at night to see the sculptures illuminated against the dark.

Held over the Easter weekend from March 29 until April 1, Lake Light Sculpture provides the ideal opportunity to enjoy the holiday – and you couldn’t ask for a more picturesque setting than the Snowy Mountains.

Jindabyne’s alpine scenery and artificial lake set the stage for a beautiful and relaxed break at any time of year – and with so much to see and do, you might want to spend a few days getting acquainted with the local area.

As the closest town to the ski fields in the Snowy Mountains, Jindabyne is a great place to enjoy spending some time in the great outdoors. You might want to take some time during your stay to explore Kosciuszko National Park – you can find more information about walking trails and other interesting sites at the Snowy Region Visitor Information Centre.

Jindabyne is the perfect entry point if you are keen to explore the Snowy Wilderness, which has an area of 7,500 sq km and is a sanctuary for wild brumby. Here, you can go hiking, camping and even horseback riding!

Alternatively, you can enjoy trout fishing and canoeing or kayaking on the lake in the warmer months – or simply go for a gentle stroll, pack a picnic and enjoy spending time getting back to nature.
