Discover an angler's haven on the banks of Lake Eucumbene. With the capacity to hold nine times the volume of Sydney Harbour, the original river was dammed to form the lake which is the central storage for the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme. It also meant the township had to be relocated with more than 100 buildings being dismantled and re-erected. The area is a great winter base for the family friendly Mount Selwyn ski resort which is a 40-minute drive away. After the snow season, the town transforms into a summer resort with plenty of fishing, horseriding, bushwalking and water-skiing. The historic town of Kiandra and the Yarrangobilly Caves are nearby.
