Set right on Swampy Plains River, this secluded campground is a beautiful, peaceful place to pitch your tent by the water and enjoy up-close encounters with the area’s native animals – among them, eastern grey kangaroos, red-necked and swamp wallabies, wombats, possums and even platypus in the river.

Old Geehi campground has great highlights all year around, from cooling off in the river in summer, to the abundant wildflowers in spring, or the chance to experience amazing views of the last snow on Main Range in winter. 

This area is also particularly notable for its spectacular array of wildflowers. There are a dozen threatened plant species that live in and around Geehi, including elusive cress and black-hooded sun orchids.

Iconic species - Southern corroboree frog conservation program

An iconic endangered species, the southern corroboree frog, found only in Kosciuszko National Park, faces the grave threat of extinction.
