Opportunities

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 supporting Jindabyne’s growth as Australia’s national centre for recreation as well as elite sports.

The draft 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 Snowy River Valleys in Kosciuszko National Park.

The draft master plan for the Snowy Mountains precinct was placed on public exhibition in June 2021. The master plan is expected to be finalised in the first half of 2022 following consideration of submissions received during the public exhibition period.

The Snowy Mountains Special Activation Precinct is an opportunity to boost the Snowy region to become the Queenstown of Australia, or the Aspen of the Southern Hemisphere, so we are looking at all options big and small, for the short and the long term.
