Whether you camp close to Mount Beauty, its rivers and amenities, or head up high 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.

- Fires are only permitted if it is not a Total Fire Ban.

- If toilet amenities are not available, dig a hole at least 100m from any water source and burry toilet waste at least 15cm deep.
- Avoid camping under large trees.
- Do not take dogs or other pets into a National Park.
- Respect others in the area by keeping noise down.
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.
