Fresh Water Trout Fishing

Rainbow Pines Tourist Park, situated right on the shores of Lake Eucumbene, gives the keen trout fisherman an ideal opportunity to land the big one.

With brown and rainbow trout available up to 6 kg, you can't miss a good catch, whether fly fishing from the shore or out on Rainbow Pines hire boat.

Further afield, the Murrumbidgee and Eucambene Rivers, Tantangara Dam and Three Mile Dam, and numerous mountain streams are ready to explore for the anglers delight.


The town of Adaminaby, home of "The Largest Trout in the World", was relocated to accommodate the introduction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme.

Many of the original buildings were transported by truck to their new location.

Rainbow Pines Tourist Park at Old Adaminaby retains on its grounds the original schoolhouse (now the office and shop) and church built circa 1896.

Adaminaby is an ideal base from which to explore the nearby Kosciuszko National Park and indulge in the great variety of tourism activities of the high mountains of NSW in all seasons.

The annual Trout Festival fishing competition is held in November.

A race meeting is held each February.

For filmgoers and horse racing enthusiasts, it is interesting to note that the Old Adaminaby Race Track (located on the road to Rosedale on the Cooma side of the town) was used in the film Phar Lap.

In a word AWSOME, the owners Rick & Kerry were just the best. Great park, excellent facilities, right on the lake, only minutes from the ski fields, valve for money, and very friendly operators and staff. We will be back again for sure.
Thanks very much guys for making my family holiday the best I have had in years. :)
