Lake Jindabyne is 200m away, just across the road through the park. There are many private beach areas or rocky outcrops for fishing or relaxing. Take a canoe and explore the foreshore keeping an eye out for lizards, birds, deer, goats, kangaroos and wallabies. Drop a line and try your luck at catching some trout or salmon, or net some yabbies for bait or dinner. Of course, you can always try wake-boarding or water-skiing.

Snowfalls vary from year to year but generally the town will get a few dustings each winter with the odd 2ft dump. Within the national park base levels average 1.5-2m. Snow chains are needed when driving into the national park. The following links may be of use when planning your holiday to the Snowy Mountains.

Nestled within the magical Kosciuszko National Park, Thredbo is the highest village in Australia (1380m). Here you will find shopping, activities and restaurants to complete any holiday. The Thredbo River runs through the resort and in summer provides a great backdrop for BBQ and picnicking. The official ski season starts early June and runs until early October when the snow melts and Mountain Bike season begins, and the wildflowers come out ( best time Dec-Feb). This is a year round resort and is Australia's most well renowned ski/snowboard destination. Easy access to Mt Kosciuszko (6km return), Australia's highest peak at 2228m
At 1760m, Charlotte Pass is the highest snow resort in Australia. During winter the resort is snowbound and the only way in is by oversnow transport. Great access to the Kosciuszko National Park where you can walk the main range, visit Blue Lake Glacier or hike to Mt Kosciuszko (12km return).
The perfect place to take the family when the budget is small. Selwyn doesn't usually get as much snowfall as the other resorts but it makes up for it in atmosphere. The staff are always fiendly and willing to make your holiday as fun as possible. Great for kids.
