Adaminaby

The nearby township of Adaminaby is famous for its 'Big Trout'. A 10 metre high Rainbow Trout made of fibreglass and steel. Standing proudly in the central gardens and picnic area, it has welcomed Adaminaby's visitors since the 60's.

Adaminaby has a hotel, bowling club, garages, motel accommodation, souvenir shops, restaurants and many other visitor facilities.

The original town was submerged in the 1960's as Lake Eucumbene slowly filled following the completion of Eucumbene Dam by the Snowy Mountains Authority.
