Lake Crackenback is a great location for a trip to the snow. Close to the ski tube and Thredbo resort. The Alpine Larder is a very good place to eat/order pizza with friendly staff …especially Ashleigh. The Cuisines serve breakfast and is what you would expect for a buffet style breakfast. There are plenty of things to keep the kids... More

We stayed here for 7 nights during Winter. We stayed in a gorgeous 2 bedroom chalet and ate at both restaurants while we were there. We drove to the ski tube each day, but there is also a courtesy bus that will take you. The ski hire is on site and the staff are very friendly. The chalets are modern,... More

We really enjoyed being two minutes drive from the Perisher ski-tube and watching the sunset across Lake Crackenback. A family-friendly place and nice to come back down the mountain after a day's skiing. Great mix of self contained and dine out options was nice to have within walking distance in the resort. Highlight was snow on an ice-lake on our... More

Stayed for three nights in a free standing chalet over the school holidays, after attempting to stay in the lake side apartments, with limited success. Book early if staying during peak / school holiday periods. The chalet was charming and very spacious. The heating was extremely efficient, and the bath a welcome sight after a days skiing. The kitchen is... More

We recently had the pleasure of spending 5 nights at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa. We found the location to be amazing with such easy access to Perisher for skiing via the resort bus and ski tube. Just hop on the bus, on the train and you're on the snowfields. The relaxed and quiet atmosphere in the resort was fantastic... More
