Cradle Mountain Accommodation


I'm considering staying at Cradle Mountain Lodge in November this year for my wife's birthday and have a couple of questions for the local experts:

How busy is the lodge likely to be at this time of the year?

I guess what I'm really asking is should I book early and pay the premium or wait until closer to the event in the hope of gaining cheaper accommodation?

Thanks in advance.

In my opinion the Lodge is the best accommodation in the group of places just outside the gate, so it's always in demand. It certainly has the best restaurant and bistro.

The tourist season starts around the end of September and will be in full swing by the end of December.

I think you can afford to take a little bit of risk and keep an eye on prices on wotif, but you run the risk of missing out. :(

And prices are never low at Cradle just because of its remoteness.

And that's about everything I would take into consideration. To be honest, I would book as soon as you are certain of your dates. :)
