Enjoy an active snow holiday at Jindabyne

Snow to most Queenslanders is a foreign concept, but it's the novelty of snow that makes it perfect for a fun holiday.

We’re used to beaches, sand castles and fish and chips, then in winter we hibernate. But why not trade a quiet winter for the snow fields, snowmen and hot chocolates?

Located in Northern NSW, Jindabyne is the perfect location for a white Christmas… in July.

Jindabyne is surrounded by some of Australia’s top skiing destinations, such as Thredbo and Perisher.

But don’t worry if skiing doesn’t tickle your fancy, the area also boasts great scenic walks through the surrounding national parks, boutique shopping and cosy restaurants. And if you’re still looking for some adventure in the snow but skiing feels a little too ambitious, tobogganing is a great alternative. It’s an easy and fun activity which is ideal for families that don’t have the time to invest in skiing lessons.

For affordable accommodation, try the Jindabyne Discovery Parks. It is fabulously equipped with luxuries like saunas and spas to warm you up after a chilly day in the snow, as well as essentials like chain hire and fitting, a ski repair shop and drying room.

Accommodation at the Jindabyne Discovery Parks is versatile to suit every budget and need, ranging from luxurious villas to cabins, bunkrooms, caravans and even tents for the warmer months.

While most popular in the winter months for snow holidays, Jindabyne Dam attracts many all year round boasting great fishing, sailing and water skiing.
