Cabramurra

Cabramurra

Cabramurra​ is Australia’s highest town at an altitude of 1488m above sea level.

Cabramurra was built by the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority in the 1950s as a base for the northern administration of the Scheme.

Cabramurra is a pretty scenic town and while there is no accommodation available the public are welcome to call in and visit the cafe, newsagency and store, re-fuel and view the collection of Snowy Mountains Scheme photographs. The Cabramurra services are the closest for visitors to Selwyn Snowfields and people travelling on the Elliott Way.
