Welcome to Lake Eucumbene
Australia's Premier Year-Round Alpine Water Resort
Old Adaminaby - Anglers Reach - Providence Portal - Buckenderra - Middlingbank - Braemar Bay
Today, the waters of Lake Eucumbene cover much of the old town and, when the water levels drop,
many foundations resurface. Old Adaminaby has a range of accommodation options for the holiday
maker and with boating and fishing at your door it's a wonderful place to visit.
Anglers Reach is a small residential community on the northern shores of Lake Eucumbene.
Anglers Reach offers year-round activities with trout fishing a favourite amongst visitors. Boat hire is
available locally, together with fishing tackle. In winter, skiers flock to the area and stay in a variety
of local accommodation.
Situated on the northern shores of Lake Eucumbene, and within the Kosciuszko National Park,
Providence Portal is only 40 minutes from Cooma and 10 minutes from Adaminaby. Also, being just
26km from Selwyn Snowfields (with the closest accommodation to the ski resort) Providence Portal
is an ideal base to ski, fish or explore the National Park.
The Eucumbene River flows into Lake Eucumbene at Providence Portal, so does the outflow pipe
from the nearby Tantangara Dam. Due to low lake levels, there is currently no water at Providence
Portal (apart from the river).
Buckenderra is located on the southern foreshore of Lake Eucumbene. It has some of the most
accessible water on the lake and with Cooma and Jindabyne only a short drive away, Buckenderra
is the ideal location for snow skiers in the winter months.
On the western shores of Lake Eucumbene, Braemar Bay is an ideal base to explore the
Kosciuszko National Park.
