Waste Point master plan: Kosciuszko National Park

Find out the aims of the master plan and how it will be finalised.

Waste Point in Kosciuszko National Park is approximately six hectares on the edge of Lake Jindabyne. It is located approximately 21 kilometres east of Perisher Valley and 13 kilometres north west of Jindabyne.

Waste Point has been used as a management base since the 1950s and contains a collection of houses, a small research station, a works depot and water supply, waste water treatment and utility infrastructure.

National Parks and Wildlife Service is considering how Waste Point can deliver an economic, environmental and social benefit for both Jindabyne and the broader Snowy Mountains region.

The Waste Point Kosciuszko National Park preliminary master plan (PDF 3.5MB), prepared by Tract Consulting, was on public exhibition from 18 July to 29 August 2017.

The public exhibition period is now closed.

The preliminary master plan identified and explored possibilities to create a lakeside precinct for locals and visitors to Waste Point. The final plan will seek to deliver a suitable and appropriate design solution that responds to site values, demand, feasibility and community aspirations for the site.

Finalisation of the master plan

All submissions received during the exhibition period will be considered by OEH and Tract Consulting during preparation of the final master plan.

OEH complies with the NSW Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998, which regulates the collection, storage, access, amendment, use and disclosure of personal information. See the OEH privacy webpage for more information.

Submissions, in part or in whole, may be made publicly available on our website, unless we received instruction that they were not to be made public.

The final master plan will be published on the OEH website.
