Ghost Gully is a small, hidden gem tucked away off Long Plain Road within Kosciuszko National Park. The area offers a variety of activities, making it an appealing option for people looking to get the most out of a solo visit.

Located in a valley at the junction of two creeks, Ghost Gully campground is surrounded by black sallee eucalypt trees. The site is sheltered and spacious, perfect for portable horse yards. Bring your trailer and saddle up for a horse ride along Mosquito Creek trail, which reaches north to Hainsworth and Old Currango huts, blending colonial heritage with gorgeous natural beauty.

If you want to get your heart pumping, take a short mountain bike ride and cool off afterwards at either Murrumbidgee River or Tantangara Dam. You can also take a short drive for an afternoon swim, so be sure to pack your swimmers. Yarrangobilly Caves are just down the road too, where there are plenty of walks to warm up your muscles.

In spring, wildflowers bloom and envelope the area with a burst of colour, while autumn brings cool clear nights and a sky full of stars. Combine opportunities for fishing or birdwatching with plenty of picnic spots available, and you have a compelling reason to stay for days.

Iconic species - Southern corroboree frog conservation program
