|Abstract:||Jindabyne is a town that has undergone dramatic structural change over the past 60 years. From a small pastoral community, Jindabyne has grown to become a premier tourist destination due to its close proximity to New South Wales’ ski resorts. This growth has been a product of the introduction of the Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme, the Kosciusko National Park and the tourism industry along with the career opportunities provided by these industries. This growth has resulted in a shift of power from the traditional grazing community to other sections of the community. History is used by these sections of the community to legitimise their position in society. This thesis explores how and why this history has been used.|
