New Snowy Mountains Blog

Lake Jindabyne, Snowy Mountains, New South Wales, Australia

I am resurrecting my Snowy Mountains blog under the new name of “Down by Kosciuszko” with the subtitle “Visit the High Country, home of Australia’s highest mountain “where the air is clear as crystal, and the white stars fairly blaze” (from Banjo Paterson’s epic poem The Man from Snowy River)” and invite you to have a look at it —

Those familiar with The Man from Snowy River will recognise that the title also comes from his poem.

The aim of the blog is to extol the mountain region of New South Wales and encourage visitors to come and enjoy this vibrant and photogenic part of Australia at all times of the year. While many only head to the high country during the winter when the snow is deep and the skiing good there are many qualities of this part of Australia in spring, summer and autumn that can quicken the pulse just as a fast run down the mountain does for a skier in the winter. From the rivers and creeks to the lakes, from the straight as a die Alpine Ash to the twisted and gnarled trunks of the snow gums, from the brightly coloured parrots to the shiny black Australian ravens, from the lumbering wombats to the agile kangaroos, from the bush to the rugged area above the tree line, there are subjects to please the soul.

Jindabyne is an ideal base for the high country in all seasons with accommodation available in hotels, holiday units, motels and two caravan parks which include cabins and caravan and camping sites. And not far out of Jindabyne there are more places to stay with closer access to the bush and its inhabitants.

Have a look at what is, in effect, a new blog You can find articles about the area, details of events (these may take a little time to all find their way to the blog but I shall be trying to get as much information as I can) and photographs.
