Wares Yard Camping Ground - Kosciuszko National Park NSW

Snow sports are the big attractions in winter, but in warmer months you can admire the alpine wildflowers, visit historic homesteads on the treeless plains in the north of the park, or explore Yarrangobilly Caves and swim in the thermal pool. Alpine walks are limited to the warmer months, but lower-altitude walks are worth taking throughout the year. The Alpine Way has been fully sealed, providing a scenic route between Jindabyne and Khancoban.
Car-based camping areas with fireplaces and toilets are provided along major roads throughout the park, including the Alpine Way, the Khancoban-Cabramurra road (closed in winter), the Snowy Mountains Highway, Elliot Way and Barry Way; phone for details about camping in these areas. Commercial accommodation is available at Thredbo, Perisher, Smiggin Holes, Charlotte Pass, Guthega and Sawpit Creek. For a real old-world high-country experience stay at Currango Homestead and cottages in the heart of the snow gum woodlands in the north of the park (phone 6947 7025 for bookings).
Access 450-600 km south-west of Sydney. Yarrangobilly Caves are 70 km south-east of Tumut on the Snowy Mountains Highway; the ski fields are 90-100 km west of Coomaon Kosciuszko Road and Alpine Way and at Selwyn Snowfields north-west of Cooma. During winter, motorists must carry properly fitting snow chains on most mountain roads. A vehicle entry fee applies year round on the Kosciuszko Road and Alpine Way and during winter at Mt Selwyn. Vehicles and horses are not permitted in the park's wilderness areas. A vehicle fee of $3 applies at Yarrangobilly Caves.
