Facilities for a Fantastic Weekend!
For 2017, we are back in a fantastic location – Jindabyne Sport & Recreation Centre, Jindabyne, NSW. Typical comments: “An excellent location and relatively quiet at this time of year.” “The venue and food was excellent.” “Great ride to the location.” “Hope the event is at the same venue in 2017!”
Two hours south-west of Canberra in the heart of the Snowy Mountains, Jindabyne Sport and Recreation Centre provides a range of services, facilities and accommodation options. Set on 87 hectares of high alpine country, the Centre delivers nature on a grand scale – crisp blue skies, gold-hued plains and views of massive mountains topped with snow. The Centre is moments from Lake Jindabyne and Kosciuszko National Park and only a short drive to the NSW snowfields.
Comments about HU Snowy Mountains
“Had a great time at my first HU meeting. Met some lovely people and inspired by the rides they have done. Thanks to all who made this event possible.”
“…amazing, inspiring people who made me feel, despite age and a few creaking joints, I can have an adventure ride overseas, and I should just get out the and have a go. Motivating and confidence building.”
“Great weather, great company, great talks. Great food. Well done team. Special thanks to Jacqui and her Drone…”
“Meeting such amazing people! Including Brian and Shirley – I am a huge fan of theirs!”
“Very informative talks!”
“Such a great way to meet people and also meet some of my favourite travel writers and adventurers. It was an amazing experience that I’ll always remember.”
