Ngarigo campground - Kosciuszko National Park

National Park - New South Wales


**Please note:  This is suitable for tents and swags only as their is a short walk from your car to the camping area.  Snow chains are required after snow**

Tall alpine ash forest along the banks of Thredbo River gives Ngarigo campground an incredibly scenic setting that you might not expect just off of one of Kosciuszko National Park’s major roads. There’s a large, cleared grassy area too that’s perfect for groups.

There's plenty to do around Ngarigo. Fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout is very popular along the river. If you’re quiet, you might spy a shy platypus when you throw your line in, as they live in this part of the river. It’s also close to Thredbo Alpine Village and the many trails that offer excellent bushwalking and mountain biking, including Thredbo Valley shared-use track and Kosciuszko walk.  If you’re not feeling quite so energetic, touring Alpine Way in your car is a great way to see many parts of the park.

For experienced, well-prepared campers, this can be a good base for skiing, although, as you might expect, it gets very cold.

Activities: fishing, walking, astronomy and star gazing, picnicking, playing and socialising
