Directions from Sydney (Driving time - 5 hrs)
It is an easy drive down the Hume Expressway. Before reaching Yass, turn left for Canberra/Cooma and follow the signs to Cooma. Upon leaving Cooma, you have the option of taking the Kosciuszko Road to Jindabyne, Thredbo & Perisher Valley or, taking the Snowy Mountains Highway to Adaminaby and on into the northern end of the Kosciuszko National Park.
When you see the lake for the first time, you keep driving on past the turn-off to East Jindabyne, then further along when the lanes reduce to one in your direction you will actually see Chilliwack Lodge ahead up on the left, drive past the turn-off to the Tyrolean Village, and the drive is the next gravel road on the left.
Drive up the road to see the stone and log gates (pictured below) and your trip to serenity is complete.
Directions from Melbourne (Driving time - 7 hrs)
Take the Hume Highway to Albury/Wodonga. You can then leave Wodonga on the Murray Valley Highway for Tallangatta, Corryong and Khancoban. Travelling from Khancoban to Jindabyne over the Alpine Way is a true alpine experience.
