What you need to know

The Snowy Mountains region may be most renowned for its wintersports, however the region also shines in the warmer months due to the pristine nature of its landscape. One of the key features that makes up its geography is the pure and glassy Lake Jindabyne, located alongside one of the region's most popular resort towns and is one of the finest spots in Australia for trout fishermen to drop a line. It forms the central point of activity for visitors to the region in the warmer months, offering the chance to take part in a number of more physical activities as well.

Its inviting waters are also a haven for boating enthusiasts with multiple possible launch points, while other outdoor aquatic activities such as kayaking, sailing, canoeing and windsurfing are all viable ways to enjoy what it offers. There are various options for staying near the lake, with holiday parks and camping both viable options. If you're looking for a laid-back, natural escape in NSW then this lovely lake with its perfectly clean waters serves as a great base to do so.
