The caravan park at Jindabyne was right on the lake. The first afternoon was a little cloudy but the light was pretty.
There was also a sculpture festival on over the Easter weekend. This one was amazing!
After using the best day to climb Kosciuszko we weren't expecting to get out on the lake in the kayaks, but Saturday turned out to be really calm. We couldn't resist paddling around the islands or taking photos from the water.
On Sunday there was an Easter treasure hunt at the top of the Thredbo chairlift, and some of the eggs came with good prize money. Nathan was also keen to go up Kosciuszko again, and we thought it would be a good day to go because most people would be aiming for the midday treasure hunt and not trying to fit in a 13km hike before it... turned out that there really weren't a lot of people up there - because it was cloudy, 5 degrees and 60kph winds (making it well below zero with the wind chill!). He made it, though, and got back for the treasure hunt with 15 minutes to spare.
Unfortunately his gem hunting skills didn't translate into the big dollars to pay for the holiday, but he did find some chocolate:) Hardly surprising, though, considering the number of people!
We had no intentions of climbing the mountain again, but did enjoy a short walk around the top of the chairlift while we waited for Nathan.
