Eucumbene: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Lake Eucumbene


Lake Eucumbene in the beautiful Snowy Mountains is located around 40 kilometres from Cooma at its closest point. It sits at an elevation of 1200 metres above sea level making it a pristine alpine lake.

The closest town to Lake Eucumbene is Adaminaby. The dam construction was finished in 1958 creating the largest of the Snowy Scheme lakes. It holds around nine times the volume of water that Sydney Harbour does. This lake is one of the best fisheries in the Australian Highlands holding rainbow trout, brown trout and atlantic salmon, the lake is regularly re-stocked with trout by NSW Fisheries which makes it a mecca for trout fishermen.

In the summer months there is a wide spectrum of sporting, freshwater fishing and tourist activities that are available all year round in the Snowy Mountains region of the Mount Kosciusko National Park.

The Snowy Scheme is widely considered to be the greatest engineering project ever undertaken in Australia.

Big Trout


Adaminaby, located 51 kilometres northwest of Cooma, in the Snowy Mountains, is a popular trout fishing spot, so it's an ideal place for the 10 metre high Big Trout to live. This huge fibreglass structure was built by Adaminaby artist, Andy Lomnici, in 1969 and is an icon for the beautiful mountain town of Adaminaby.

The iconic sculpture has been completely refurbished by The Friends of the Fish Committee and after this full restoration, she can once again proudly take her place alongside the 144 other "Big Things" scattered throughout Australia.

Thredbo River


If the lakes offer tranquillity, the often thunderous torrents of the mighty Thredbo River in a spring defrost are a completely different prospect. A place where the fish jump and hide and race for rapids and waterfalls. This is fly fishing of another dimension. Previously known as the Crackenback it runs from Thredbo to Lake Jindabyne and is without question one of the most beautiful trout perfect rivers ever. Giant fish and trout over 10lb are a likely yield and its appeal is its accessibility. As one of the regions two only declared "trout spawning streams" the rule is one fish per angler per day (though it is possible to continue to "catch and release" and a minimum size of 50cm). And no bait fishing.

Australian Alps Walking Track


The Australian Alps form the largest area of mountainous alpine country in the nation, extending from Canberra and the nearby Brindabella range, through the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales and along the Great Dividing Range to north east of Melbourne. More than ten peaks exceed 2100 metres, including Mt Kosciuszko, Australia's highest mountain at 2228 metres.

The 655 kilometre Australian Alps Walking Track generally follows ridges and high plains through some of the highest country in Australia and is mostly remote from any settlement. You can walk the track in ten weeks, but many people choose to walk shorter sections such as Baw Baw plateau, Bogong high plains, and the Jagungal wilderness.

Please note: before exploring the Alps, walkers must obtain detailed maps of their chosen walking area including a copy of "Alpine Walking Track" by J. Siseman.
