Your Year-Round Holiday Home from Home – Jindabyne, New South Wales

Jindabyne, New South Wales, sits high in the Snowy Mountains at the edge of Kosciuszko National Park. At 918 meters above sea level, this is one of the highest towns of its size in Australia. While the entire area may be best known for The Man from Snowy River, the attraction goes far beyond the poem and the film that followed. Jindabyne is home to winter and summer activities that draw holidaymakers from far and wide, and whatever your interest, you’re sure to enjoy your stay here. There are many ways to spend your days in any season, and a wide range of holiday rental homes ensures that your nights are enjoyable as well.

An interesting fact: Jindabyne, as you can see it today, is barely 50 years old. The original site of the township is currently beneath the waters of nearby Lake Jindabyne, which was created by damming the Snowy River in the 1960’s.

If you’re interested in a preview of the scenery around Jindabyne, check out the 2006 movie Jindabyne, with Gabriel Byrne and Laura Linney. The multi-award winning film was set and filmed right in Jindabyne. Also see 2004’s Somersault for further views of Jindabyne.

Filling Your Days with Activity

Are you planning a winter getaway (June – August period), or a summer idyll for a December / January escape from the low temperatures at home? Either way, you’ll have a great holiday in Jindabyne. The many choices of holiday homes available in all seasons will allow you to tailor your holiday to match your vision. One tip: book early, especially for the June – August timeframe.

If you’re coming in winter, you’re likely coming to ski in nearby resorts at Thredbo, Perisher, or Charlotte Pass. All of these townships are in the Kosciuszko National Park, and are roughly a 45-minute “ski commute” away, depending on weather and traffic conditions. You can also take the Ski Tube train for a much faster trip to your skiing destination. Keep in mind that if you are driving, you are required to carry ski chains during winter months while in the National Park. As tempting as it may be to find your holiday rental home in one of the resort areas, consider keeping to Jindabyne accommodations. You will save money and time, as it is much more convenient to all locations.

For summertime holidaymakers (December and January, primarily), there are even more things to do. Begin with trout fishing on Lake Jindabyne, or bush walks around and through the National Park. Whitewater rafting is available on the Upper Murray River, and horseback riding and bicycle tours are always available. If you plan to visit in summer, remember to bring the sunblock and citronella, and inquire with your landlord if your planned holiday home or villa has air conditioning if this is important to you.

Living with the Weather

If you are a winter holidaymaker planning a stay in the Snowy Mountains, you already know to dress warmly! Nighttime low temperatures in the June to August winter months can dip to -3 to -4 degrees Celsius. Great conditions for snow, but this type of weather will also make you glad for choosing your Jindabyne holiday accommodation wisely (and early!). Summertime visitors will find daytime high temperatures sometimes reaching 24 – 26 degrees Celsius. Temperatures in this range will be extremely comfortable for water sports or fishing, biking or walking.

How Will You Arrive?

Holidaymakers have many options when traveling to the Jindabyne area. Remember to make booking your holiday rental home a top priority, and then decide how you will get there.

1. There are plenty of daily flights from all of the London area airports to both Sydney and Canberra. Depending on other destinations during your holiday, you could choose either arrival location. Jindabyne is 5.5 hours from Sydney by car, or 2.5 hours from Canberra by car.

2. If you’ve chosen Canberra, there is bus service into the Jindabyne area. In winter months, the busses run two times per day, and once per day in summer.

3. Keep in mind that once in Jindabyne, there’s no taxi service. If you plan to stay in town, then getting around on foot or by bicycle is easy enough. Choose accommodation that is centrally located, and you will be fine. If, however, you’d like to explore the surrounding areas at your convenience, then hiring a car at the airport is the best approach.

Whether you arrive in January or in June, Jindabyne welcomes you. Even if this is your first trip to the Snowy Mountains, we’re sure that it won’t be your last.

The view was gorgeous, it had all the utensils and odds and ends that you might need, and was clean and comfortable. It was cosy; we had two people stay and I'd say that would be the maximum you could fit comfortably with the size of the lounge room and kitchen. It does feel a little close to the apartment next to it, but we never had any problems with them, it just feels like your personal space is encroached on a bit. All in all it was a lovely place to stay, and I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
