With lots of space to spread out, it’s great for large groups and families. Bring a footy or a cricket set and enjoy playing sport with the glistening blue waters of the dam behind you.

Southern corroboree frog conservation project

An iconic endangered species, the southern corroboree frog, found only in Kosciuszko National Park, faces the grave threat of extinction. Saving Our Species aims to prevent this from happening by battling chytrid fungus, protecting frog habitat from pests, and fostering a captive breeding program.
