  • Lake Jindabyne is a man made lake on the way to the snowfields from Sydney and Canberra. This lake attracts many tourists. A great trout fishing area. It offers picturesque views of the mountains in winter from the lakes edge particularly on the side where Kalkite is located. Aurora Australis has been spotted from this location and provides a great spot for Astrophotography.
