The original town of Jindabyne was relocated in the 1960′s when the Snowy River was dammed as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme. Only a handful of houses being moved to their new location.

The remains of the old town lie submerged under Lake Jindabyne, they can occasionally be glimpsed when lake levels are low. For great views over the lake at any time head for the Waste Point Lookout on the Kosciuszko Road.

Modern Jindabyne is a year round holiday destination and is a very cosmopolitan place with its mix of new residents and pioneering families.

In winter Jindabyne is a base for skiers bound for the major resorts in Kosciuszko National Park and for the rest of the year it’s a great place from which to go bushwalking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting and canoeing, horse riding and kayaking. The lake provides superb opportunities for trout fishing and water sports.
