Jindabyne Local Information
Jindabyne is the gateway to the Snowy Mountains. The Jindabyne township is built on the foreshores of a stunning freshwater lake and surrounded by the mountains that pose as a backdrop to a town unlike any other.
Jindabyne is one of the highest settlements of its size in Australia, at 918 metres above sea level, but it wasn't always that way. Originally the small town was situated on land that is now underneath Lake Jindabyne, the township was transferred to its present location in the 1960s due to the damming of the Snowy River as part of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme.
There is a wide variety of bars and restaurants, shops and services, Churches and a cinema, so when you're not exploring the great outdoors you will still have plenty to do.
