Cabramurra was the third-highest permanently inhabited town on the Australian continent, situated at 1,488 metres in the western Snowy Mountains of the Great Dividing Range, in the state of New South Wales. It is 82 metres lower than Dinner Plain in Victoria, and 272 metres lower than Charlotte Pass Village in New South Wales. The last residents are scheduled to leave the town in January 2018 with the current workforce housed being replaced with drive-in/drive-out staff. The name Cabramurra may be derived from Wiradjuri gambirra marra.
