Escape to the Polblue campground, set high up in subalpine woodland. It’s a spacious campground centred around a grassy picnic area, and set away from the main road so it’s perfect for camping with children. The campground has caravan and camper trailer sites, as well as scenic tent sites.
A great place for a weekend getaway, there’s easy access to some of the attractions in Barrington Tops National Park, including the easy Polblue Swamp walking track, a short one that the children will love.
If you do walk the Polblue Swamp track, you’re likely to see a kangaroo or wombat hanging out along the track. The best time to see them is early in the morning as they graze for some brekkie in the forest. Four-wheelers should also try the nearby Barrington trail.
