Buchan Caves Reserve
Snowy River NP is still to the east , to the west is Alpine National Park . Within 10km , the road becomes unsealed , narrows and begins an endless parade of hairpin turns . Suggan Buggan provides a camping and rest area with tables ; from here the road continues its crazed ascent with not-very-reassuring vertical , unfenced drop-offs .
Within 10km , the Snowy River appears and you continue to follow it to the border , with the Willis Campground being the last stop on the Victoria side . Over the border , you are now in New South Wales ’ Kosciuszko NP and on the Barry Way ; the Willis picnic area is also on the New South Wales side .
From here , four campgrounds are on offer right next to the Snowy River . Frankly , this is the highlight of the entire drive . Each campground offers tent sites , toilets , a picnic table and wood barbecue facilities . Who wouldn ’ t want to camp beside the Snowy River with the chance to do a bit of swimming , fishing , kayaking or canoeing ?
