Adaminaby, Old Adaminaby & Anglers Reach

Historic Snowy Mountains Region

There are actually two Adaminabys. The original, dating from the colonial period, lies under the waters of Lake Eucumbene, which was created as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme in 1958. About 100 buildings, including most of the historic landmarks, were moved to the site of the new town on higher ground.

European graziers arrived in the 1830s but there was little development in the area until the 1850s when gold was discovered. In 1885 the town was proclaimed and, against much local sentiment, was named Seymour.

A year later it was changed back to Adaminaby, the name it had been known by since early settlement.
