Adaminaby, a Town for Four Seasons

Big_Trout_03_08_2014Adaminaby and the villages of Old Adaminaby, Anglers Reach and Providence Portal on Lake Eucumbene are set among the rolling high plains in the Snowy Mountains NSW and at the doorstep to Kosciuszko National Park.

At an elevation of over 1000 metres, Adaminaby is truly "a town for four seasons", with mild summers; autumns with clear blue skies and the brilliance of multi-coloured foliage; winters white with morning frost followed by bright days; and spring replete with daffodils, apple and plum blossoms and newborn lambs.

Adaminaby and Lake Eucumbene have much to do and see:

  • bushwalking
  • fishing
  • skiing, snowboarding and snow play
  • horseriding
  • mountain scenery, flora and fauna
  • history of the Snowy Mountains, Kiandra goldfields and the Snowy Mountains Scheme
  • high country lifestyle less than 2½ hours from Canberra and the Sapphire Coast.

Come and join us for your Snowy Mountains experience.
