Nestled in the foothills of Australia’s stunning alpine mountain region and located on the banks of the beautiful Lake Jindabyne, only a short drive from the Alpine resorts of Thredbo and Perisher, Snowy Mountains Grammar School is truly unique.

This environment provides our students with opportunities that many only dream of.
