Tumut Ponds campground
Selwyn area in Kosciuszko National Park
The remote Tumut Ponds campground is a great place to relax and explore northern Kosciuszko National Park. There’s no winter road access between the June and October long weekends.
Located in the rugged Cabramurra area, Tumut Ponds campground is surrounded by native gum trees and is a tranquil spot to escape from it all. A great spot to do some fishing or as a base to explore some of our more remote walking trails such as Round Mountain trails. You will discover stunning alpine and sub-alpine landscapes, enjoy wildlife encounters and view crystal clear waterways. Please note that the water level in Tumut Ponds rises and falls very quickly.
Vehicle access is AWD dry weather and 4WD wet weather.
Bookings are required. Book online or call 1300 072 757.
