The precinct will leverage the region’s unique cultural and environmental attributes to establish a resilient year-round tourism destination as Australia’s alpine capital. It will focus on improving transport connectivity within the precinct, conserving and enhancing important environmental and heritage values, and positioning Jindabyne as Australia’s national centre for recreation and elite sports.
The final master plan for the Snowy Mountains precinct highlights diverse opportunities for both tourism and community growth around the precinct. These include opportunities around:
- urban development and enhancement of Jindabyne’s public realm
- new clusters of activity along the shores of Lake Jindabyne
- the alpine resorts and natural attractions of the Thredbo, Perisher and Charlotte Pass in Kosciuszko National Park.

The precinct is now in the delivery planning stage that will provide the blueprint for how enabling infrastructure and utilities upgrades will roll-out, including foreshore improvements, shared paths and park improvements, the adventure park, town centre amenity upgrades and car parking.
As part of this process, further scoping studies will be undertaken and there will be additional opportunities for the community to provide feedback on the Delivery Plan and Development Control Plans which will occur later this year and into 2023.
