Jindabyne Things to Do

  • Ski passes

    If you aren't staying on the snow, the best way to the snow avoiding paying national park fees is to drive to the SkiTube and catch the train to Perisher. No chains needed usually. This year a day pass cost $105. They won't really commit to telling you the weather conditions at the train station - "chair lifts on wind hold" could mean a gale is...

  • Ski passes

    If you aren't staying "on snow", the best way to avoid paying national park fees is to drive to the SkiTube and catch the train to Perisher. No chains needed usually. This year a day pass cost $105. They won't really commit to telling you the weather conditions at the train station - "chair lifts on wind hold" could mean a gale is blowing. However...

  • Perisher/Blue Cow

    Included in this list should be Smiggins Holes and Guthega as they are all accessible using the same lift ticket.

  • A walk in the park

    On the foreshore of Lake Jindabyne (and easily seen from the road) is a huge statue of Count Paul Strzelecki who explored the wilderness of the Snowy Mountains, named Australia's highest mountain and had a life worthy of a novel. The plaque on his statue reads: 'Sir Paul Edmund Strzelecki. Born in Poland on 20 July 1797. Arrived in Australia on 25...

    One of the things I really liked about Jindabyne was this shopping centre - looked like ordinary shops on the outside, but go in, and there was a downstairs level as well, open to the sky, with cafes and restaurants around a central sunny courtyard - very surprising and pleasant to visit.
