Horse Swamp campground

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

For a change of scenery, visit this remote camping spot high on the plateau of Barrington Tops National Park; it provides fresh mountain air and refreshing landscape to match. Load up the 4WD with your mountain bikes and head to rustic Horse Swamp campground – a remote natural getaway, between Scone and Gloucester.

Set up camp among the rippled snow plains, dotted with snowgums in this secluded campground near Polblue campground. Your neighbours will most likely include wombats and eastern grey kangaroos. When youre ready to explore, grab your mountain bike and head for the bike-friendly trails, such as Careys Peak lookout.

At night, stoke up a fire for a barbecue feast and settle back to listen to the nocturnal orchestra, under a thick blanket of stars. Grab a torch for the opportunity to see possums, greater gliders and, perhaps, a powerful owl.
