Jindabyne, Snowy Mountains, NSW
to go to the snow or just trying to catch a few fish? Jindabyne is the
place for you. Perhaps just a relaxing break when you can walk along
the banks of Lake Jindabyne, reveling in the fresh mountain air, glorious
scenery and laid back lifestyle is what you are after, then Jindabyne
can fill your needs also.
Jindabyne is some 114 kms by road from the Australian Capital City
of Canberra and is a year round holiday destination. With fantastic
trout fishing, water sports, horse riding, bush walks and sightseeing in the
warmer months, in winter it is the staging point for skiing trips to
the Snowy Mountains snowfields of Thredbo and Perisher Valley.
The original town now lies beneath the waters of Lake Jindabyne, which
was flooded in the early sixties as part of the Snowy
Hydro Scheme. Nowadays Jindabyne is a hive of activity and a modern,
bustling town, full of hope and prosperity.
There are fabulous accommodation options from camping
and caravan parks to upmarket quality hotels, in fact you will find
something to suit all budgets at Jindabyne and most are very well presented
and serviced. Dining is a treat as Jindabyne is certainly a cosmopolitan
town where choices range from Chinese, Italian, Lebanese to traditional
Aussie tucker of fresh pies and fish and chips.
package tours from both Sydney and Canberra during the snow season
which provides transport, accommodation at Snowy Valley Hotel, daily
transfers to the ski slopes and some meals, or you can travel to Jindabyne
yourself and arrange your own accommodation.
You do have to pay a fee to enter the Snowy Mountains National Park,
which is currently set at $27.00 per car per day. This is my
photograph of the Perisher Valley region and depicts the beauty
of the winter season so well. Thanks to Hypergurl
