For a weekend getaway far from the crowds, pack up the 4WD and head for Buddong Falls campground, in the remote north-west region of Kosciuszko National Park, near Talbingo township. This rustic creekside camping spot is close to picturesque waterfalls and walking tracks, ideal for independent campers seeking a tranquil haven.
Set amongst tall forests of smooth-barked ribbon gums, pitch your tent before exploring the nearby creek and waterfall. If you’re ready to stretch your legs, Buddong Falls walking track leads to two pretty waterfalls and forms part of the longer Hume and Hovell walking track.
During the day, parrots and tree-creepers may be seen flitting amongst the branches. At night, settled in around a campfire, you might glimpse possums and gliders.
