Nestled among sub-alpine plains and frost hollows, just off Snowy Mountains Highway, Bullocks Hill campground is a great base to explore northern Kosciuszko National Park.

The campground’s a popular place for camping with horses, with a horse yard onsite. Saddle up and explore the trails and high country huts including Millers Hut to the north, and Witzes Hut further along Bullocks Hill trail. The cool climate makes it ideal for bushwalking and mountain biking in summer.

Watch for kangaroos and wallabies bounding across the open plains, as the unmistakable ‘squeaky gate’ sounds of gang-gang cockatoos echo above. You might see pipit birds foraging on the ground and darting out of the grassy woodlands.

Why not take a scenic drive to discover historic Kiandra or the huts and gorges along Long Plain and Blue Waterholes? Yarrangobilly Caves is a short drive up the highway. Or, spend your days fishing for trout in the Murrumbidgee and Eucumbene Rivers, or Tantangara Dam.

Autumn brings cold nights, perfect for a campfire. While there’s no access in winter, it’s worth visiting in spring, when the plains bloom with purple hovea, orange shaggy peas, and yellow billy buttons.
