OUR 'BIG TROUT' HAS BEEN REFURBISHED

On Sat. 2nd Nov. 2013 Adaminaby's beautiful Girl was ceremonially welcomed back to her former glory when she was officially unvielled by the Mayor of Snowy River Shire, Clr John Cahill. Also in attendance were the Hon. John Barilaro, member for Monaro, the Hon. Steve Whan, MLC and Mr. Peter Cochran, Deputy Chair of Tourism Snowy Mountains.
The Story: 'Friends of the Trout' was formed in 2010 as a sub-committee of the Chamber and under the guidance of its highly motivated Chair, Jane Reid, who worked extraordinarily hard to have the region's much loved icon restored to her former glory. The Committee worked very closely with the Snowy River Shire Council and its local state members to ensure that everything was done to the highest of standards.
The Funds: The total Project cost $52,000 with $31,000 being generously donated by organizations and individuals from all over Australia. The State Government contibuted $11,000 and the Snowy River Shire Council $10,000 as well as unlimited in-kind assistance.

Lovely Lake Eucumbene The Lake Eucumbene region is located in the Snowy Mountains in the northern part of the Kosciusko National Park. This is an area noted for its pristine environment, the Lake being about 1200 metres above sea level and the higher peaks rising to over 1600 metres. Unique geographic features from caves to gigantic boulders distinguish this area along with its silence and crisp, clean, clear mountain air. This area is a haven for Australian wildlife and its wildflowers are reknown worldwide.

Snow capped magic


The construction of Lake Eucumbene began the building of Australia's iconic Snowy Mountains Hydro Electricity Scheme and was completed in 1958. It is the largest of the Snowy Scheme lakes and holds around 9 times the volume of water that Sydney Harbour does.
Lake Eucumbene is the biggest alpine Lake in eastern Australia and is about 40km from Cooma at its closest point. This Lake is undoubtedly one of the best fishing places in the Australian Highlands holding Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout.
The closest township to Lake Eucumbene is Adaminaby where you can stock up on food, fuel and fishing supplies.
Accommodation can be found in Adaminaby, as well as in the numerous locations around the Lake such as Old Adaminaby, Anglers Reach, Providence, and right around to Braemar Bay.

ADAMINABY'S ICONIC "BIG TROUT"
Known around the world, this wonderful icon has helped established Adaminaby as the Trout Fishing capital of Australia. This wonderful work of art was lovingly built and donated by the artist Andy Lominici who was himself a resident of Adaminaby. Starting early in 1972, working from a drawing he made of a Rainbow Trout, Andy Lomnici designed and created a 10 metre high, 2.5 tonne, steel framed, wire-mesh structure covered with layers of fibreglass and costing $6,000. It was officially opened along with the inaugural Adaminaby Trout Festival by the Hon. Tom Lewis, NSW Minister for Lands and Tourism, on Sat. 3rd Nov. 1973. More than thirty years after its official opening when Adaminaby is mentioned, everyone immediately thinks of our "BIG TROUT" and our significant annual Snowy Mountains Trout Festival.
