Blue Waterholes campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

This beautifully positioned campground is the perfect place to stay if youre planning to hike the Clarke Gorge and Nichols Gorge walking tracks, and explore the nature and historic huts in the Northern Plains and Wilderness area of Kosciuszko National Park.

From the campsite there are lovely views of the limestone cliffs and rock formations of Clarke Gorge and Cave Creek. Wander down the short track to the turquoise waterhole that gives the campground its name. It’s a great spot to paddle your feet and enjoy a picnic on a hot summer’s day, as kangaroos cast a curious eye and eagles soar overhead.

Nearby campgrounds at Cooleman Mountain, Cooinbil and Long Plain offer alternative places to stay in the popular summer months.
