Welcome and thank you for visiting our web site. We hope that the information provided as to who and what we represent will encourage you to actively support our cause by becoming a member.

The Snowy Mountains Bush Users Group Inc. was formed in December 2003. We are an incorporated not for profit organisation formed by citizens concerned with the management of Kosciusko National Park. SMBUG members are responsible recreational users of KNP. We use the park as a meeting place, coming from all over NSW, ACT and VIC to share a love of the mountain country. We are a practical conservation group whose aim is to protect our traditions, our culture and our heritage as well as the environment. Our mission is to ensure the preservation of continued access to KNP for sustainable recreational and commercial recreational use for current and future generations. We are passionate about our right to freedom of access to all parts of KNP and aim to reverse the current trend of creating further access restrictions, increasing wilderness or like zones, or other actions which will prohibit or restrict our cultural experiences, access to heritage sites by traditional means, and our recreational activities.
