Crystal clear streams, cool mountain air and perfect tranquillity…or clean mountain water and adrenalin-pumping water sports?


Talbingo offers the best of both worlds and is the gateway to the Kosciuszko National Park and the winter wonderland of the Selwyn Snowfields.


Talbingo and its surrounding waterways offer fisherman superb deep freshwater fishing and for a different challenge numerous crystal clear mountain streams. It is also home to the "Jounama Classic” fishing competition-a once a year opportunity to boat fish on Jounama Pondage.


Originally built as a town for the Snowy Mountains scheme, Talbingo has been discovered as a tranquil place to stay by holiday makers. Bushwalkers, campers, trail bike riders, mountain bike riders, snow and water skiers and swimmers are attracted to the area throughout the year.
