In summer, Jindabyne is an excellent location for the many tracks for bushwalking in Kosciuszko National Park; fishing in the many mountain streams; mountain bike riding at Thredbo and the Thredbo Valley Trail; and the base for some awesome drives such as the Alpine Way and the Barry Way.

The Lodge Atmosphere
It is important to understand that the lodge operates on a communal basis. Guests at the lodge share a well organised kitchen, and there is a single, large, communal dining table. Guests also enjoy the lounge room and the deck overlooking the lake with others, perhaps sharing a wine, beer and snacks. The Lodge has no dishwasher, no phone, no TV, and no WiFi provided, enhancing its communal nature. Many members and guests comment that the communal nature of the lodge is one of the things they value most about the Lodge. There is a supply of children’s games to encourage interaction between children of differing ages from various families. Children are expected to be supervised at all times and not impinge on the enjoyment of other guests.
Members and guests are expected to respect that they are shared spaces and be aware of the needs of others particularly in relation to noise levels (children, music, phone calls, etc) and treat each other with respect and tolerance. Guests wishing to use portable technology are to minimise their use in the common areas and use headphones to avoid intrusive noise which may impact on others.
How to Get to the Lodge
Coming from Sydney into Jindabyne turn right just before the ‘old’ shopping centre (the first one you see). There is a Bowling Club on the Lake side of the turn and a church (set well back) on the other side. There is a police station up the road to the left and a pub/bar on the main road to the left on the main road just after the turn.
Follow the road with two left turns (one looks to be straight ahead) following the edge of the Lake (which is behind and down from the row of houses on the left). Townsend Street is the nearest road to the Lakeside.
Piste Haus is a wooden building on the right facing across the lake and up a steep drive. There is a name sign to the left of the drive and the number (20) is painted on the driveway.
