About Us

The magnificent setting of the Riverglade Caravan Park on nearly 7 hectares adjoining the Tumut River has been an official resting area for more than 80 years. It was designated as an NRMA ‘Resting Place’ in 1929. Prior to that it had been the ‘Police Paddocks’ in the 1870s when the iconic Elm trees were first planted.

The land was originally a significant indigenous meeting place and Tumut is a name derived from a Wiradjuri word meaning ‘Quiet resting place by the river’.

Today the Riverglade Caravan Park fronts more than a kilometre of the pristine Tumut River. The accommodation options available suit all budgets and preferences, from unpowered sites perfect for camping to luxurious, fully appointed cabins.

The serene setting of the park is complemented by the many beautiful natural features of the Tumut Valley and the nearby Kosciuszko National Park.
