O'Hares campground in Kosciuszko National Park was a former Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme site. Today, it provides convenient boating access to the southern end of Talbingo Reserve.

This peaceful campground is surrounded by eucalypt forests, mountain gums and peppermint trees, and offers lovely lake views. Here, you’ll also find picnic tables, wood barbecues, non-flush toilets and a boat ramp, making it a convenient family camping spot.

This is a great spot to pitch a tent and take advantage of all that Kosciuszko National Park has to offer, as well as to enjoy paddling, sailing, boating and fishing on the nearby reservoir.

Conservation program:

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.
