Please note

Northern Kosciusko National Park and Tumut Region covers a vast area: where to begin? Your best bet is Tumut Visitor Centre, located a short drive from the park in Tumut's historic Old Butter Factory.

As well as a 24-hour tourism touch screen, and a retail shop stocking visitor guides, topographical and 4WD maps, you'll find friendly, knowledgeable staff who can offer great tips and help you plan your Kosciuszko adventure. Book accommodation, or get advice on road conditions, fire warnings and other important information about Kosciuszko National Park.

While you're here, don't miss the visitor centre's corroboree frogs on display or the local exhibition space. For something a little different, ask the visitor centre about guided tours in the national park.

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.
