  • Great fun kayaking on an autumn day across Lake Jindabyne. Would definitely recommend. We had all ages from 7 to 56  more »
  • Was great to get away for the weekend. The township is easy to navigate on foot and is very laid back and picturesque. Heaps of accommodation and half an hour to the snowfields.  more »
  • We visited this area recently and found the lake to be very picturesque throughout the days and from various vantage points. A real pretty lake and area.  more »
