Khancoban: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Khancoban Pondage

Khancoban Pondage is a three kilometre long lake that forms part of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme and around its foreshores lays the town of Khancoban, a town built specifically to house the workers of the Snowy Mountains Scheme, which commenced in 1949. Unlike the higher altitude lakes and impoundments of the Scheme, Khancoban, at only 298 metres altitude, is more dairy country than high country. However, with the awesome backdrop of Australia's highest snow covered mountains, the scenery is stunningly beautiful. In Spring and Autumn, with wildflowers and falling leaves of all colours, it is a photographers paradise!

The lake is accessible to all forms of fishing and boats are well catered for with an easy access cemented boat ramp.

This is iconic Australia, this is the home of the legend and the spirit of Jack Riley lives on today in the Upper Murray. Come and be part of the legend.

The Upper Murray region is also home to some of Australia's most pristine natural environment located in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains and at the headwaters of the mighty Murray River.
