Most Important: Make sure you have a front door code before you leave home!
What You Need to Bring
Pillows and ample blankets are supplied in the lodge. You will need to bring your own bed linen, pillow slips, towels and provide for all food and drink.
The lodge has fully equipped kitchens complete with crockery, eating and cooking utensils, wall ovens, microwave ovens, stovetops, fridge/freezers and food storage cupboards. There are also cleaning materials and tea towels, cling wrap and foil.
Jindabyne shops are a 3-minute drive away, and have a wide range of goods including ski hire outlets.
The lodge is often empty during the day, so the main access door is security keyed.
Lodge members are issued code for each visit, but ordinary members and visitors need to obtain one from the booking officer the week prior to going to the lodge.
At Jindabyne each bedroom has its own key, which you leave in the lock at the end of your stay.
Location & How to Get There
The Lodge is located at 4 Barry Way, Jindabyne NSW 2627.
If you are driving from Cooma, continue along the main highway into the Jindabyne township and drive past Jindabyne Shopping Centre (on the left), proceed straight through the first roundabout at Nugget’s Crossing shops and turn left at the next (larger) roundabout into the Barry Way. The lodge is the second building on the left as you drive up the hill.

Garbage bins need to be put out on certain nights for collection (check the Noticeboard). It is preferable to totally fill one garbage at a time to minimize collection costs.
Consideration for Other Patrons
All common areas are available for all patrons, and all patrons should be sensitive to the needs of others.
Keep noise to a minimum, particularly at night and early in the morning (not everyone wants to get up at 5am and get to the first lift of the day!). If you have been out partying at the local clubs or hotels, and you are coming home very late, please be aware that any sound made at late hours will carry throughout the entire lodge, especially if using kitchen appliances.
Non-paying guests may visit you in the common areas, but are not permitted to stay overnight. Patrons are responsible for the behaviour of their guests (including paying for any damage they may cause).
He/she represents the Club’s management. If you require assistance or advice, or you would like to make a suggestion or complaint, please see him/her. Remember that he/she is also on holidays like you.
He/she should also have a master key to open your bedroom door should you accidentally lock yourself out. (Be particularly careful in the mornings as the Lodge Captain may have already left the Lodge for the day when you realize you are locked out! If this happens, the Lodge Manager will need to be called.)
The Lodge Captain (after notifying the Accommodation Director of the Club) is empowered to take any necessary action to ensure the proper running of the Lodge.
On-site management is contracted to Lois Merrinan who is located in Jindabyne (not at the Lodge). Her telephone number is (02) 6457 2337. Contact Lois if you have any problems such as damage to the Lodge, breakdown of equipment, lost keys etc.
If you have matters that cannot be dealt with by the Lodge Captain or the Lodge Manager, some other Club people to contact include the Booking Officer, Karen Johnson on (02) 4261 9191 or the Accommodation Director, Matthew Boseeley on 0411 730 380.
- Advise the Lodge Captain if you are departing early.
- Clean, vacuum and tidy your room and ensuite, and the spaces you used in the refrigerator, freezers and kitchen cupboards etc.
- Fill out the Register next to the front door and leave the room key in the door lock.
- If you are the last out of the Lodge, ensure all internal bins are emptyed.
- Ensure all windows and doors are locked (this is also important during your stay!).
