Set at the forest edge on a plain of naturally treeless frost hollows, this tranquil spot is the perfect Far South Coast getaway for a family.

Pitch your tent or set up your camper trailer on the grassy area next to Alexanders Hut, then discover this historic cabin, built for yesteryear’s cattleman.

There's plenty more to do nearby. The whole family will enjoy exploring Nunnock Swamp and Grasslands walking tracks to visit nearby Nunnock campground and beyond. Spring and summer bring beautiful wildflower displays along this well marked 15km trail network.

Don't miss the 4km trail around Nunnock Swamp. Surrounded by diverse trees and grasses, this upland swamp hosts many rare and threatened animals, from frogs to a multitude of birds. This area has also been important to Aboriginal people for at least 20,000 years—traditionally a source of food, medicine and fibre.

You can retrace more recent pastoral history at Keys Yards, the remnants of a stock yard, or walk Cattleman's track (2.5km) which is part of a rugged stock route from Monaro to the coast.

Enjoy a meal by your campfire as night falls and keep an eye out for ring-tailed possums and wombats. If you're lucky you may see a greater glider, a very fluffy cat-sized member of the possum family.
