The NSW Government is developing ‘Go Jindabyne’, a Masterplan to revitalise the gateway town to the Snowy Mountains. The plan aims to make it Australia's premier alpine destination and fantastic place to visit all year round.


Jindabyne is thriving and has enormous potential for growth. The Masterplan will aim to ensure the town is not only able to cope with future growth but is also able to thrive for decades to come, for the benefit of both visitors and the Jindabyne community.


It will set out a clear vision for the hub of the Snowy Mountains - a region that welcomes more than 1.3 million visitors a year and is home to around 35,000 people.


The Masterplan will consider all aspects of Jindabyne, including tourism, jobs, services, accommodation, housing, roads, local products and all factors that contribute to the distinct local character of the town.


It will be the key to progressing Direction 3 of the South East and Tablelands Regional Plan 2036 to Develop the Snowy Mountains into Australia’s premier year-round alpine destination.

The Masterplan will:

  • include analysis on the location of future services including schools, health services and community facilities
  • set out a plan to unlock the Lake Jindabyne foreshore, allowing better utilisation of the lake and greater access to the CBD’s focal point
  • assess links and opportunities in surrounding towns and villages including Adaminaby, Berridale and Dalgety 
  • identify sites for future residential and commercial developments
  • investigate the potential of a bypass, creating better amenity for the CBD

NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro and Minister for Planning and Housing Anthony Roberts were in Jindabyne to announce the Masterplan on 5 November 2018.


Lee Shearer APM will lead the development of the Masterplan.


Most recently Ms Shearer led the successful project to pave the way for the revitalisation of Gosford on the NSW Central Coast and she also heads the state’s Resource Regulator.


Ms Shearer will oversee a whole-of-government working group that will include the Snowy Monaro Regional Council and other key stakeholders such as state agencies, community groups and business leaders.


A key initial focus for Ms Shearer is hearing what the local community has to say about this ground-breaking initiative to develop Jindabyne.
