Visit this lovely, quiet campground in Kosciuszko National Park and find out why time spent in the unspoilt beauty of the Snowy Mountains region is the ultimate stress-reliever.

Nestled beside Gurrangorambla Creek and sheltered by black sallee gums, Old Snowy campground offers invigorating valley views, along with frequent visits from kangaroos and wallabies.

Bush surroundings, unmarked sites and rudimentary facilities are all part of the campground’s back-to-basics charm. Set up your tent or trailer and then head off on a bushland mountain bike ride, exploring the northern end of Currango Plain. Bushwalking is a treat in this scenic area, too, so why not come in spring to wander through the wildflowers?

Old Snowy campground is ideal if you want to combine camping with horse riding. You’ll find convenient, dividable horse yards, and it’s a great starting point for the heritage-packed Pocket Ride.

Birdwatchers, too, are in for a treat with thrushes, treecreepers and currawongs in abundance. And if a spot of trout fishing takes your fancy, you’re well-catered for in the nearby creeks and streams of Kosciuszko National Park.
