darren giles (eucumb…'s conversations

Nice, i was wondering how youd get in there as they close the snowy mountains highway. Now only staff of the snowy hydro and their families can live there apparently. I dropped bye here a few months back just to see what was there during a big loop from Canberra, jindy, Khankoban, Adaminaby & back.

Nice wish i was there, ive never been up Eucumbene fishin in the snow, i will be this year :)

What wonderful memories for me, I was up there when there was no water, just Adaminaby. Wow, the years sure go by. There was old Adaminaby and New Adaminaby, I have photos outside the hotel somewhere. Thanks Darren.

Mid winter at the Cabramurra Shopping Centre area.

Heavy winter snow can cover the township in over a meter of snow.

Cabramurra is a Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Authority Town and is Australia's highest permanently inhabited township at an altitude of 1,448m.

I lived here for a couple of winters while working at the nearby ski resort (Mt Selwyn). Due to it's location and climate the photo opportunities at Cabramurra were amazing.

Cabramurra is the highest township in Australia and sits on the main range at an altitude of 1,448m.

I spent a couple of winters in Cabramurra (Australia's highest township - 1,448m) while I worked at the nearby Mt Selwyn (now Selwyn Snowfields).

I past this sign each morning on my way to work and often wondered what would happen if I didn't obey the 100km/h speed limit!

Oh, and yes, the snow WAS that deep!

What are probably the remains of some sheds can be seen in this photo of Lake Eucumbene.

The lake filled in 1959 and on this day in July 2007 the lake was sitting at just 10.1% of capacity, exposing many historical pieces left behind by the locals as they left for 'drier' pastures.

Boundary fences and old building foundations lay scattered along the banks of Lake Eucumbene as the water level in July 2007 fell to an all time low of just 10.1% of capacity.
