The Location

**Please note:  this is accessed via unsealed road suitable for 2WD's however no BIG RIGS or long vehicle access**

Quiet and secluded, yet easily accessible from both Talbingo and Tumut, Yolde campground is the ideal option for a weekend of water sports in Kosciuszko National Park.

There’s a boat ramp here, so bring the boat, your water-skis, canoe or kayak. And with Blowering Dam known for its plentiful perch and redfin, you won’t want to forget your fishing gear.

Once you’ve arrived at the campground, nab a shady spot by the dam’s edge. Then, after you’ve set up your tent, trailer or caravan amongst the red gums and stringy barks, select your activity of choice and hit the water.

The area’s home to countless kangaroos, as well as emus, wallabies and echidnas, so there’s opportunities for some wildlife-spotting while you’re there.

You’ll find picnic tables and barbecues at the nearby picnic area, too – just the right ingredients for enjoying that fish you hooked earlier.
