Sunset at Jindabyne

Jindabyne Sunset
The western sky is ablaze with colour as the sun sets over the hills behind Jindabyne.
The construction of a major dam in 1967 on the Snowy River forced the relocation of this tiny hamlet to higher ground. It now sits overlooking beautiful Lake Jindabyne. Water from the Snowy, Thredbo and Eucumbene Rivers fill this man-made lake. Pumps then feed the Murray 1 and 2 hydro power stations. Lake Jindabyne forms part of the Snowy Mountains Hydroelectric Scheme in the south eastern corner of New South Wales, just north of the Victorian border.
