Modern Jindabyne was born when relocated from its original position in the 1960’s. The township was moved when the Snowy River was dammed (creating Lake Jindabyne) as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme. Only a handful of the original houses where moved and some exist in the new township of Jindabyne. The old town lies submerged under the waters of Lake Jindabyne and when the water levels are very low you can occasionally see the steps of the old church! For great view across the Lake towards the mountain range head to Waste Point Lookout on the Kosciusko Road.
Always in season, modern Jindabyne is fast becoming a year round holiday destination from skiing to fly fishing & bike riding, fine dining to sight seeing Jindabyne is a cosmopolitan place with its mix of new residents and pioneering families.
