Currango Homestead

National Park - New South Wales

Favourite

Nestled among the snowgums, Currango Homestead offers unique heritage eco-accommodation in the Australian Alps in Kosciuszko National Park. Registered on the National Estate, the historic homestead was built around 1895. It’s ideal for large groups and families who want to experience the spectacular High Plains in true pioneer style. On approach to Currango, you’ll see the majestic pines that line the driveway, while resident kangaroos relax on the lawns. Running by solar power and with no mobile phone signal to distract from your break, you can experience the rustic charm of station life in this beautifully restored homestead. When you’re ready to explore, saddle up the horses and start your adventure along one of the trails accessible from Currango Homestead. If you’re after more heart-pumping action, go mountain biking to Oldfields Hut and other historic huts in the area. At the end of the day, as the sun goes down, relax on the verandah and soak up the spectacular views as the surrounding plains turn to gold.
