A Year Round Holiday Destination
Modern Jindabyne was born when relocated from its original position in the 1960’s. The township was moved when the Snowy River was dammed (creating Lake Jindabyne) as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme. Only a handful of the original houses where moved and some exist in the new township of Jindabyne. The old town lies submerged under the waters of Lake Jindabyne and when the water levels are very low you can occasionally see the steps of the old church!
Jindabyne is fast becoming a year round holiday destination. The town is located near Kosciuszko National Park, a winter wonderland for skiing and snowboarding and in warmer months outdoor adventures such as bushwalking, mountain biking, fishing and high country horse riding. This beautiful area inspired poems and stories of the mountain horsemen, immortalised in Banjo Paterson's epic The Man from Snowy River.
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.
