Australia's Alpine PlayGround

Jindabyne and our Snowy Mountains are Australia's alpine playground.

We really do have an adventure for every season.

Hiking, biking, trail running, back country and in-resort snow sports, sailing, kayaking, rafting, water skiing, swimming, fliteboard e-foil, bouldering, 4 wheel-driving, and horse riding.  Our region has something for just about everyone. 

And once you're done being active you can take a drive on some of Australia's most scenic roads, grab a bite at some great eateries, or enjoy a tipple at some outstanding breweries, distilleries, and bars.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

It doesn't matter your level of skill we have trails for everyone.  

Jindabyne and surrounds have an amazing network of tracks that are easy to access.  For some of our favourites:

The TVT (Thredbo Valley Track) : the Upper TVT from Thredbo to Crackenback Resort (approx. 20km one way), is an intermediate ride and is heaps of fun through some spectacular scenery crossing the Thredbo river multiple times. For the lower TVT - If you fancy you can now ride all the way through to Jindabyne from Thredbo, but make sure your skills and fitness match your confidence.  It’s a doozey.
Ride Australia's rooftop from Charlotte Pass to Rawson Pass. There are bike stands there and then it's just a short 1.4 km walk to Mt Kosciuszko

Bungarra Alpine Village is just down the road from us.  It has a professional built Mtn bike trail network covering approx 20kms of track and 4 skills areas

Thredbo bike park opens in November and has a network of cross country, downhill and skills park on offer.

And if you need a bike talk to us, we can get you sorted.

Snow Sports
HIKING & TRAIL RUNNING

The options are seemingly endless and our region is truly spectacular.

Check out the National Parks and Wildlife Service Website for information on map trails and walking grades but a couple of my favourites:

Procupine Rocks

6km round trip - Grade 3

Starting at the Perisher Valley water treatment ponds this is a moderate single-track walk with sweeping views of Thredbo Valley and the Mange Range and offers maimum reward for minimum effort.

Dead Horse Gap

10km round trip - Grade 4

Starting at the Dead Horse Gap car park above Thredbo cross the road and take the bridge over the Thredbo River.  Then it’s just a short 1 km of stairs to get you to the top.  Ok, that bit sucks, but once the stairs are done the walk gets significantly easier and the views are totally worth the hike.

You can also catch a ride at Thredbo to the top of the Kosciuszko Express chairlift (approx. $45) and then walk out to Dead Horse Gap, back down the valley, and along the road back to Thredbo. Or walk back and take the Merritt's Nature Track down for a leg burner, but if you're feeling a bit tired catch the chairlift back down. Talk to the Thredbo ticket office about your options.

Down hill, park, back country, cross country, snowshoeing.  We are Australia's alpine playground.  We live and breathe winter.

If you have any questions on what to do, where to go, or where to hire equipment, hit us up.  We live and breathe winter sports and work in the industry too so we have all the goss.

RAFTING & WATER SPORTS

Our property is located on the Snowy River. You can spend a lazy day swimming and kayaking without leaving the luxury of your accommodation (kayaks are provided free of charge).

Other than that, Lake Jindabyne is at the heart of town and offers a suite of options from  wakeboarding and wake surfing, e-foils to paddleboards to satisfy your water-baby needs. Check out On The Rope Jindabyne Board Riders, REthynk and Sacred Ride for details.

Want to start or end your visit with something a bit more?  Alpine River Adventures offer multi-day rafting explorations into some of the most inspiring places in South East Australia along the Snowy River.  With a strong commitment to soft impact eco-tours, encounters, and activities it's an experience that will last you a lifetime.
