Welcome to Jindabyne
Jindabyne is the closest town to Kosciuszko National Park's major ski resorts, and more than 20,000 visitors pack in over winter. In summer, it assumes a sluggish vibe, paced around paddling and fishing in its large lake. Lake Jindabyne was created in 1967 after the completion of a dam on the Snowy River as part of the vast hydroelectric Snowy Mountains Scheme; the original town of Jindabyne lies beneath the placid waters.
The town centre has a glut of ski hire and outdoors outlets, along with seasonal shopfronts for both the Thredbo and Perisher ski resorts. Check out the frisbee golf course set up by the lake, near the Rydges hotel.
