Many couples agree - it’s not unusual to see a bride wandering past the hut, particularly in summer, or a group huddling together on the picturesque…
Blue Lake

Blue Lake

Blue Lake resides in Australia’s winter wonderland, the Snowy Mountains.

The area, located to the west of Jindabyne, is a UNESCO biosphere reserve and has been listed as a Wetland of International Importance, under the Ramsar Convention of 1996. The site holds great biological…
