L'Étape Australia in the Snowy Mountains

L'Étape Australia in the Snowy Mountains

We have exciting sporting events coming to the mountains with the world champion ITU Cross Triathlon and the L'Etape Australia cycling, events growing regional interest and activities. L'Étape Australia is a single stage Tour de France experience new to Australia, running for the next three years in the Australian High Country.

The inaugural 2016 "Race" route starts in Crackenback, visits Jindabyne, passes the farm by a couple of km, Berridale, Beloka and finishes at Perisher, giving plenty of spots to spectate! Both our son and son in law are competing, not our grandson as suggested below.

Fishing for trout is synonymous with the mountains and we will be open as we are every week throughout the year, for this great cycling event including 29 November through Monday the 5 th of December so you can "catch, cook and consume" or enjoy the farm environs, a tour, or our Tickled Trout Cafe offering great coffee, or a little fishing. Great alternative to those more active events!

The year has been rewarding at the farm with our premium Lakeview Cottage accommodation completed on site, an upgrade to our entrance and achieving certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor.

The Tickled Trout cafe with its alpaca burger offering continues to receive growing patronage.

Of course the fishing has been brilliant starting the year with a 1.5kg trout from Stony Lake on January 1 with the Lake continuing to yield some great trout as a reward for patient fisherman the key to fishing everywhere.

We are always happy to secure a fresh trout if you do not want to fish yourself and we do stock our own smoked trout and trout pate, worth a try if you haven’t already.

So when visiting the high country, Cooma or Jindabyne consider a visit to the Eucumbene Trout Farm as we look forward to welcoming you.
