About Berridale

Berridale in the NSW Snowy Mountains offers a wide range of accommodation to suit your budget family winter ski and snowboard holiday or summer trout fishing on Lake Eucumbene, bush walking and mountain biking vacation accommodation needs.

Berridale is a small town located between Cooma and Jindabyne in the New South Wales Snowy Mountains region. Commonly known as the 'Crossroads of the Snowy', Berridale is ideally located for accessing either the family ski resort of Selwyn Snowfields or the larger ski resorts of Thredbo and Perisher.

Berridale was first settled in the early 1860s by William Oliver. It is named after his home in Scotland. Oliver selected land and in 1863 built a house which later became an inn. Many gold rush miners passed through Berridale on their way to the goldfields at Adaminaby and Kiandra from the port at Twofold Bay. The Snowy Mountains Authority established a work camp in the town although there is little evidence of Snowy Mountains Authority housing now.

Berridale caters for skiers and snow boarders in winter and is a popular summer base for fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, boating and other activities. Berridale is close to both Lake Jindabyne and Lake Eucumbene making it the ideal accommodation centre.
