A short 30 minute drive from both Perisher and Thredbo makes NRMA Jindabyne Holiday Park the perfect base from which to enjoy your next skiing trip. A wide range of accommodation, plus drying room and ski tuning table, ensure you are fully rested and kitted out every day. That’s not to say it’s a winter only getaway: fly fishing is very popular here, and the fish freezer in the camp kitchen means your catch won’t go to waste. Not into catching your own dinner? Turn out your own delicious pizzas instead from the on site pizza oven.
Be at one with the crisp mountain air with powered camping sites, close to amenities, power and water, on grass, concrete or mat bases. Prefer to add a touch of luxury to your stay? Enjoy the sparkling water from your protected balcony in a Lake View villa. All villas and cabins feature a double bed and bunk sleeping arrangements, and the whole park surrounds a central hub with a kitted out games room and a camp kitchen complete with indoor barbecues. Hot tip: Snow Gum and Kosi Cabins are located in an elevated area of the park, which means more mountain view bang for your buck.
Let’s start with the real mountain action. Thredbo and Perisher are all within a half hour drive, making Jindabyne the perfect (not to mention pretty) base from which to finally conquer those black diamond runs. The really keen should tackle Perisher’s Superpipe; a 95m long, 16m wide, 5m high half pipe. Slow, but don’t stop, the adrenaline by taking a day hike to the highest point in Australia, the Mt Kosciuszko summit walk. Back at sea level, Jindabyne is a happening little village, particularly in the snow season. Birchwood Cafe’s nourish bowls wouldn’t look out of place in any capital city’s trendy suburb, nor would the excellent coffee and inventive cocktails at Coffee Beats Drinks. Restaurant wise, Jindabyne offers fantastic local spots serving up seasonal produce from throughout the region. The shining star in the mountain town’s crown is Brumby Bar & Grill, whose modern Australian menu is the perfect way to end an active day – in particular, the mushroom and lemon thyme risotto.
