Whether its camping out close to Mount Beauty, its rivers and its amenities, or headings up to the cool refreshing air and wide-open spaces of the Alpine National Park, a camping trip in the High Country is always a memorable experience.
SEARCH CARAVAN PARKS & CAMPSITES
The Alpine National Park has a number of campgrounds in the vicinity of Mount Bogong and the Bogong High Plains near Falls Creek. All sites cater to tent camping and small caravans. They have pit toilets and access to untreated water. Please note, the sites on the Bogong High Plains are closed during the snow season.

LEAVE NO TRACE
Our region is sensitive to human presence. We are privileged to be home to a number of endangered species, including platypus, mountain pygmy possums and alpine dingoes, as well as other rare flora and fauna.
Your behaviour has a direct impact on nature. A simple hair elastic can kill or injure a platypus, and other animals may suffer ill health from food waste and rubbish. Unattended camp fires have the ability to destroy our bushland and our homes. When entering our beautiful natural environment, always remember, take out what you bring in and leave no trace.
