I stayed in the backpacker accommodation for one night before starting the Overland Track. I got really lucky and had the 4 bed room all to myself, however even with others, it would have been a great bargain at $30pp. The room was very clean and warm and the facilities were amazing. Towels and bedding were provided, showers were hot... More

We stayed here as part of our round-Tasmania trip with Fun Tasssie Tours. The park is really well set up, like all Big 4 Parks around the country. Catering for campers, caravanners, car travellers and tour groups, the park offers excellent amenities to make your stay most comfortable. Cradle Mountain is a long way from everything, but the Big 4... More

It's just opposite the Cradle Mountain Visitor's Lodge. How convenient is that? :) We arrived very late but the staffs were kind enough to leave the keys in the mailbox for us to pick up. There's hot showers in the cabin and free parking. However, it'll be great if their convenience store can extend their operating hours later than the... More

Comfy warm cabin but buy groceries before you travel as no major supermarkets in village. Take all season clothes as weather turns four seasons in a day. If you have a park pass shuttle bus to Dove Lake is free, go to visitor centre to activate your ticket.

We stayed in a family cabin for the night prior to departing on the Overland Trail walk. The cabin was clean with basic cooking and ablution amenities, nothing flash (as one would expect in at caravan park). There is a double bed but the bunk beds were a little tight for adults. Linen & towels were supplied. The reception shop... More

We had an unpowered site which felt quite private considering it was near a main path. The showers were scorching hot, lovely after a cold day. Don't get caught out by the 5 min timer tho! Or you'll be standing there lathered up & freezing. It all seemed fairly clean & well maintained.

I often wonder about what people expect from reading other comments,I found all staff very accommodating the night manager could not have been more helpful even though it was her 2nd call out, I know staying in the BUSH I would expect to see spiders, and numerous creepy crawlies, so some comments amaze me,it's the bush the wilderness, isn't that...

We stayed at the Cradle Mountain Discovery/Big4 caravan park in January 2015. Upon check in we were greeted with a happy and well drilled team of staff who knew exactly what the traveller wanted. They made the check in process easy and stressless. The sites are beautiful and are VERY private with many native marsupials and birds frequenting our site... More

Just next to the visitor centre, we had to pay 35$ for 2. Kitchen is very nice with the fireplace, we had snow so it was even better to eat on a warm place. Showers looks nice too but was limited to 5 minutes and low in power, hopefully you can restart it without waiting a while...

Very close to Information Centre. If you need any info, speak to the friendly staff at Info Centre as reception will only tell you to speak to them anyway. You can get a free shuttle bus to all walking points up to Dove Lake.(You still need a National Parks Pass.) The shuttle saves you the drive, but there are carparks... More
