Information

Riverside Behrs Flat campground is located along Geehi Huts track in Kosciuszko National Park, near Khancoban. It offers historic huts, fishing, and views of the Snowy Mountains. 4WD recommended.

There are a number of small, informal campsites with no facilities along the banks of the Swampy Plains River. The adjacent large flat, now being rehabilitated, was a large, long term workers' camp during the construction of the Snowy Mountains Scheme.

The Flat is accessible from the Alpine Way via the Geehi Camp over a rocky crossing of the river at the southern end of the Flat. There are a number of substantial historic fishing huts in the area, built from rocks obtained from the river and surrounds.

The best sites are near Keeble's Hut at the northern end of the Flat. Here there is a large, deep swimming hole and a rope swing for the kids (big and little) and a long drop toilet. This section can get busy in holiday periods.

The Flat is a good base from which to explore the local area. The Geehi Walls 4WD trail leads north to Major Clew's hut and trail which rejoins the Alpine way and allows a loop drive back to camp.

Behrs Flat campground is closed in winter, from the June to October long weekends.

There are no camping fees at this campground but a $6 booking fee applies. Bookings are required. Book online or call the National Parks Contact Centre on 1300 072 757.

Long drop toilet. One picnic table. Bring firewood. Limitless clean water from the river (boil before drinking, you can guess what swimmers do in it). Take your rubbish with you.
