A trip to the Snowy Mountains is not complete without seeing the sites of the mighty Snowy Scheme
With locations from Cooma, to Talbingo and through to Khancoban there are plenty of ways to experience the Snowy Scheme in southern New South Wales.
As a result of the January 2020 bushfires, Cabramurra is temporarily closed to the public.
Khancoban Visitor Information Centre
Stop by the Khancoban Visitor Information Centre located in the beautiful Snowy Valleys region. You can learn about Snowy Hydro and the Snowy Scheme, find out the latest national park information, check out a model of Geehi Reservoir and take home a piece of the Snowy Mountains – with a wide range of souvenirs and locally-made products to choose from.
Opening hours 9am to 5pm, 7 days-a-week. Between June and October long weekends the centre opens 5 days-a-week 9am to 4pm. Closed 12.30pm to 1pm. Closed Christmas Day.
Talbingo is home to the Snowy Scheme’s largest power station, Tumut 3. Take a scenic drive through town to the power station, where there is interpretive signage, BBQ facilities and amenities.
Only a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Talbingo you will find the release gates for Jounama Pondage, as well as the Jounama Small Hydro Power Station, where water from the Scheme is released into Blowering Reservoir.
When visiting Talbingo, make sure you visit the local Talbingo Supermarket to find out about the Snowy Scheme and our pumped-hydro expansion, Snowy 2.0, with our interpretative display.
