Currango Station's buildings include the oldest surviving continuously-occupied homestead in Australia's Kosciuszko National Park.  It is also the largest and most intact example of permanent settlement above the snowline in the country, and has great historical significance as one of the most important links to the first European settlement of the area.


The Homestead and the other remaining habitable buildings are also highly significant for their architecture, and the importance of their preservation is now widely recognised.  It has over twenty-five remaining buildings and ruins which span 150 years of settlement in the Park.


Self-catering overnight accommodation is available in the Homestead itself, and in two nearby cottages.  The area attracts a wide variety of activities including fishing, walking, and hiking, horse riding, and more contemplative pursuits such as photography, painting, and sketching.

 

Currango Station is located near Tantangara Reservoir, in the Kosciuszko National Park in southern NSW.  As the crow flies, it is about 30km from the township of Adaminaby to its south-east, and about 65km from Tumut to its north-west (click here for maps).


The National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW (NPWS), and Friends of Currango (FoC) share management of the site.  FoC consists of a group of regular visitors who, since 1976, have been giving financial support to Currango, implementing a great number of other initiatives, and until March 2007, performing reconstruction and maintenance work.
