Alpine Way - From Jindabyne to Khancoban

The Alpine Way is a highway that was built back in the 1950’s as part of a plan to make the Snowy Mountains more accessible. It connects the mountain villages of Jindabyne and Thredbo and Khancoban which is located south-west of Canberra. Nowadays it has turned into a tourist route that is ideal for a daytrip with Jindabyne as its official starting point. It starts on the eastern side of the Snowy Mountains, crossing the crest of the Great Dividing Range and winds around the western side of the range along the upper part of the Murray River. The roundtrip is around 350 km, offers great variety and amazing scenery and it takes a full day to complete.. Some “must stops” along the way are Geehi Walls, Olsen’s Lookout, Dead Horse Gap, the highest point of the trip at 1,580 m, and Murray Power Station. Although the windy mountain roads are generally in good condition it is advisable to be cautious, especially during winter.
