The LJ

Comments off

In any given town of Australia you will find a pub, probably many pubs actually. No complaints here of course, I love ‘The Pub’.

Jindabyne is much the same. Offering 3 directly pub style venues, and of course a bowling club. Other not quite pub style options can be found dotted all over town, in restaurants and hotels.

But there is always ‘the local’. The favorite, the consistent and glorious pub that is complete with pub food, pub people and pub activities. The 3 point checklist for old faithful, ‘The Pub’.

Now what I’m about to say is probably cause for debate for some. But since I’m in charge of this article  we’ll do things my way for the time being (You can have your say at the end of the article, we’d love your feedback!).

Jindabynes offering of ‘The Pub’ is The Lake Jindabyne Hotel. Ticking the 3 points off ‘the pub’ checklist with a well inked feather. Its great! Pub food, Pub liquor and all the Pub activities you should expect. Pool, Big Buck hunter TAB sports and Pub folk.

The Lake Jindabyne hotel or ‘The LJ’ recreates the classic Australian pub environment in a town where visitors come from all over the place. It is a venue where you can feel at home on your holiday or while staying for the winter, and is open year round for when you change your mind and stay in Jindabyne for good!

A long standing staple of Jindabyne, ‘The LJ’ has stood the test of time and will continue to service and impress the masses as they march through town for years to come. ‘Old faithful’.

In my opinion, and I have put a lot of time and thought into this sweeping declaration I’m about to make; ” ‘The LJ’ is the best place to go for an all inclusive experience. It serves as a great port of call for weary travelers or tired snow-bums. The pub offers great value for everyone, it is family friendly, It has a central location and very little effort is required for all those exhausted Mums and Dads out there that are hoping for a way to relax after a day on the hill.

If for some reason you aren’t on the hill go down to the LJ during the day, for a game of pool, great wedges and an unbeatable view of Lake Jindabyne! And don’t forget…

Drink responsibly! and

Be kind to the staff! They work hard!

It honestly is a great all rounder and even offers year round budget accommodation in arguably the best location in Jindabyne.

If you like pubs, The LJ is the place for you. Pop in and say hello to Graham or Maddie behind the bar. They’d love to see you!

P.S. I would recommend the nachos! Enjoy!…. Responsibly 😉


Alec took his slabs of wood worldwide for years. He floated around enjoying basic day to day creature comforts like salt, beers and nasi goreng, amidst chasing snow for as many days of the year as possible. Then he got a day job... But the dream lives on, Today he loves nothing more than snowboarding, writing for Genki and just being the #1 snow hound this world has ever seen.
