Perry's Shave for Cancer - 18 September
Perry Gabriel, one of our brave fitters from Front Valley, is planning to shave his luscious locks off to raise money for the Cancer Council! To support Perry’s mission to raise $5,000, please follow the link below.
I’m challenging myself and others to shave it all off in support of the Cancer Council in their mission for a cancer free future.
Because 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, I’m losing my locks to raise funds and show my support.
Please sponsor me to support cancer research and provide vital services for Australians living with cancer.
Thank you for your generous donation. Together, we can free the future from cancer.
- Where: Lifty Olympics on Front Valley, outside of JAX

The Wednesday Room - A Health Care Service
The Wednesday room is a nurse-led clinic that provides a safe and non-judgmental environment for young people to discuss youth health matters, including sexual health as well as a pap smear service. If you need to call in and speak with Nurse Jackie in the Wednesday room, you can walk in (with no pre-appointment necessary) between 2.00 and 6.00pm every Wednesday.
All consultations in the Wednesday Room are bulk billed, (meaning no charge for Medicare card holders). Non-Medicare card holders will be charged a nominal fee. There is no charge for pathology tests, thanks to Capital Pathology for their support of the Wednesday Room. If you wish to discuss any other concerns in this safe and judgement-free environment or need to make an appointment, please call Jindabyne Medical Practice on 6457 1221.

Daniel - 30/07/2019
I just spent a week at the Station Resort with my wife and 2 kids (4yo & 7yo). We had a great time and it was in large part due to the staff. We had a couple of minor issues at the Station that the staff sorted out very quickly and without any fuss. The food was great and abundant. Finding gummi bears on the beds was great, it kicked the kids straight into "I love this place".
My kids were on skis for the first time, and the instructors at Smiggins were able to make it a great experience for both of them.
At one point my 7-year-old went missing on the slopes of Smiggins. The ski patrol were right there to help. When we found her, she had been noticed hiding behind a tree halfway down the run by an instructor. The instructor carried her down to the bottom, and when I came across them, he was on his phone to his team trying to figure it out. I have no doubt ski patrol and instructors would have coordinated within the next few minutes.
Thanks so much to the team, we are already planning our next trip and will be staying at the Station for sure.
