The Yarrangobilly area, between Tumut and Cooma, is a great base for the whole family. Come and explore the natural wonders of northern Kosciuszko and Snowy Mountains Highway.

Discover some of the most beautiful limestone caves in Australia, with 6 show caves open to the public. Stop by Yarrangobilly Caves Visitor Centre for tips and to buy cave tour tickets. Then step into the depths of South Glory Cave on a self-guided tour through its lofty chambers. Join a daily guided tour of Jillabenan Cave's delicate stalagmites, stalactites, shawls and cave corals. Or, see Jersey Cave’s rare black flowstones.

More amazing caves and tours are available during school holidays. Try hands-on geology and Aboriginal culture tours, or Castle Cave tours by headlight. Ask the visitor centre about customised group tours, school excursions. They can also help with meetings and weddings.

Above ground, a swim in the outdoor thermal pool is a magical experience. The pool's fed by a natural spring with water staying 27ºC year-round. Keep an eye out for superb blue wrens as you swim. Then follow the Yarrangobilly River walk back to Glory Arch walk and carpark, or South Glory Cave. At dawn and dusk you might see a platypus in the river.

The rugged karst landscape is a backdrop for great walks, wildlife and bird watching. Stay a night or 2 at beautifully restored Caves House or Lyrebird Cottage, or camp nearby and delve deeper into the Snowy Mountains. You can also try our lesser-known campgrounds in northern Kosciuszko.
