Thredbo Chamber AGM  


Yesterday the Thredbo Chamber AGM  that was postponed from 2020 was held. 

We welcomed some new members and said goodbye to some much loved long term members. 

The chamber would like to thank Steve Owen for his diligent and devoted service as Chamber president and Ian Foster for his 29 years of hard work, dedication and community involvement. Long time committee member Reggae Ellis has also resigned from the committee after 20 years of service in the Chamber. Thank you so much to all of you for your many years of commitment to the chamber your presence within the committee will be missed. 

Overall the meeting was quick and efficient. It was clear that one thing that needed to be focused on is community projects and involvement to bring back the community spirit. 

Moving forward the Chamber would like to focus on community involvement/projects and the new constitution that will move the Chamber forward in the right direction. After the survey which was conducted there are many things to be considered and implemented looking towards the future. 

We would like to announce the following members of the chamber;

Treasurer, Secretary and Public Officer -
Gregg Quinn 

Committe Members - 
Jen Wilson 
Colleen Godsell 
Arron Rogers 
Neil Brown 

KT representatives -

Jindabyne Lake Light Sculpture   

Lake Light Sculpture is an inspiring outdoor sculpture exhibition and competition which will be held along the stunning foreshore of Lake Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains of NSW from 2nd to 5th April 2021.

The Easter long weekend offers a fantastic opportunity to experience Jindabyne. The sculptures are displayed in an evocative setting with the reflections of the Snowy Mountains on the lake, providing a living studio for the artworks. It is as night falls that the real magic begins. Illumination has, since the festival’s inception, been a defining element of Lake Light Sculpture, with the sculptures lit from sunset to 10pm each evening. Artists embed lighting, reflection and optical tricks into their sculptures to play on the light of Easter’s full moon. The effect is dramatic, transforming the already interesting sculptures and revealing hidden elements. It’s an ideal time to bundle up against the autumn chill and walk hand-in-hand with the ones you love along the foreshore.

Fox Control Program   

A fox control program will be undertaken adjoining Thredbo, Charlotte Pass, Perisher and Guthega, including the main range track, and along Schlinks Pass from Saturday 20th March until Tuesday 20th April.  The program will involve the burial of 1080 baits within the areas identified in the attached map.  The fox baiting program has been undertaken since 1999 to reduce the number of foxes on the Main Range and surrounding alpine areas.


The program is part of an integrated pest management program that also includes cage trapping for feral cats and soft jaw trapping for foxes and feral cats during the non-snow periods and baiting during the winter months. The control program is designed to reduce fox populations and their impact of predation on native animals including the threatened species broad-toothed rat and mountain pygmy-possum.

Definition of Casual employment introduced for the first time   

The Federal Government’s proposed Fair Work Amendment (Supporting Australia’s Jobs and Economic Recovery) Bill 2020 (the Bill) has now passed both houses of Parliament in a revised and significantly reduced form. 

Whilst key aspects of the Bill were jettisoned last week, the passing of the Bill remains a landmark development as it reforms a substantial and often problematic feature of the industrial relations system - casual employment.

Recycling of soft plastics  

Did you know that soft plastic such as GLAD wrap, bubble wrap, snack wrappers and cereal box liners cannot be placed in Thredbo's regular yellow recycling bags. Soft plastics need to be disposed of separately. 

Plastic cannot biodegrade – it breaks down into smaller pieces and accumulates in the environment. Wildlife including fish and birds are threatened by ingesting and becoming entangled in plastics that drift into their habitat. Plastic particles also accumulate in landfill where toxic chemicals may seep into groundwater and downstream water sources. It is estimated that around eight million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year!

As consumers, we need to acknowledge the problem and rethink our consumption of plastics. There are many plastic waste hierarchy’s on the web, but they all have the 4 R's in common.

Refuse single use plastics wherever possible – when grocery shopping purchase loose items not packaged in plastic, bring your own reusable bags and containers for takeaway food.

Reduce your plastic footprint – choose products that contain less plastic packaging and fewer plastic parts – what happens to those products at their end-of-life?

Reuse existing products where possible – glass and stainless steel are long-lasting, durable, healthier alternatives to plastic. If you do end up with plastic containers, you may be able to re-purpose them (storing seeds for the garden, nuts and bolts in the shed)

Recycling programs are struggling to keep up with the massive amounts of plastics they receive. Recycling is a band-aid solution rather than a prevention – and should be considered only if you cannot refuse or reuse. There are REDcycle programs across Australia for soft plastics, and most hard plastics can be recycled. 

The good news is that you can collect your soft plastics and drop them off to the collection point at Woolworths in Jindabyne or Cooma. 

Help keep our beautiful mountain environment plastic free!
