In the heart of Jindabyne, just 200m from the shores of Lake Jindabyne, Araluen Lodge is a perfect getaway for families, groups and organisations. It is the ideal location for winter ski trips and a great base for summer trekking in the Australian high country.
Araluen acts as a base camp for the many great activities available in the region. Of course, it is the Snowy Mountains and Charlotte’s Pass that are the great winter drawcards in the area, offering an abundance of skiing, snowboarding and alpine trekking
Araluen sleeps 43 people in total across a range of dorms and smaller bedrooms. All beds are supplied with pillows and blankets, just bring your own linen and towels.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with industrial dishwasher and gas oven adjacent to a large dining and recreation area.

In the winter snow season, Araluen Lodge books out early due to its popularity with skiers and snowboarders. In summer, it’s a nature-lover’s paradise—there’s a huge network of trails that can be accessed through the National Parks Centre in the middle of Jindabyne.
Other activities available in the warmer months include mountain biking, abseiling, kayaking and canoeing. Several local companies provide horse-riding adventures, caving, rock-climbing trout fishing, abseiling, fly fishing, trail biking, sailing etc
