Driving Directions

The road from Gloucester is signed "not suitable for caravans". There is a stretch of about 90km of dirt which is often wet and muddy, due to the sub-alpine climate. There are also narrow stretches and steep winding sections on the Gloucester side. Snow and ice may be present at times.

On the Gloucester side, Copeland Reserve is a suitable free camping area where you can leave your caravan, (taking any necessary security precautions).

There is a gate between Scone and Polblue which should be shut after passing through.

Polblue Campground is on the edge of a unique peat moss swamp which is the birthplace of six rivers. High in the alpine region of Barrington Tops National Park, this magnificent natural setting is a must see.
In winter there may be snow on the ground, creating a white wonderland in this beautiful mountain forest. The campground is expansive with level grassy camping areas, plenty of amenities and wood fired BBQs. There are also shelters with gas BBQs at both the picnic area and the campground.

Explore the walking tracks that lead out onto the peat moss swamp. From the forest edge, watch as grasses give way to a dense growth of sedges crowding the moss of the swamp. If you’re walking in spring or summer, you may see rare ground orchids along the track and it’s a good walk for spotting wombats and kangaroos.
