Just back from 4 nights at Highlander, we took food for 3 nights, and wished we had taken food for 4 nights as we would put the wood fire on and have dinner by it, just lovely. At dusk we saw so much wild life as these cottages are individual and the bush around has been left as nature meant it to be, we saw kangaroos, pademelons, wallabys, endless wombats and the real prize siting was a spotted quoll. The cottages are comfortable but not luxurious with some querky bits like the door pulls. There are not many places around to eat and you cannot buy food to cook at Cradle Mountain, all has to be purchased before getting on the mountain. Parks like you to use the shuttle bus which is walking distance from the cottages, extra bonus as so many of the others are miles away and you have to use your car. We had a $60 National Parks Pass which lasts for a couple of months, really good value.
