“Good cabins/woodland atmosphere”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

4 room dorm nice clean hut vibe going on, nice bush surroundings, good kitchen and bathroom facilities, good quality showers, no shops and nothing much to do in the evening if on a budget but it is what you should expect if staying overnight anywhere near Cradle Mountain

We stayed over for one night last week with the family and found it cosy and good value for money. There aren't many cabins or self-serving apartments in the Cradle Mountains area, so what is made available is not cheap. Our cabin was just shy of $200 for the night, but thought was pretty good value considering the other options nearby. The cabin was good and bunk beds comfy. There was a good electric heater too, came in very handy when the outside was 7-8 degrees in the night. All cabins were built in the middle of the Cradle Mountain wilderness, which was great. The holiday park is 2 mins from the park entrance, and about 20 from the Dove Lake which is the easiest access point to the Cradle Mountains and the starting point of a few walking/hiking trails. Would stay here again.

On our first night in Tasmania we stayed here in a Budget Family room (as it was all that was available when we booked). The room was small but comfortable. We enjoyed the communal kitchen but unfortunately we hadn't bought supplies before heading up to Cradle Mountain and the Park's store was (understandably) expensive.
Our tip would be to make sure you have bought your food before heading up the Mountain. Also make sure you have warm clothes, even in the middle of summer it was very cold. ... especially the walk to the bathrooms in the cold and rain.
Cradle Mountain itself is truly stunning. Highly recommend a visit.

We stayed here for 2 nights while we explored the area. The camp kitchen was a blessing with the open fires ( even in January!) making it warm and cosy. The bathrooms weren't very clean, and for the 2 nights we were there, it didn't appear that they had been cleaned at all. There was still the same manky soap dissolving in the same shower on the day we left.

We camped here in an unpowered site for 2 nights. We were very impressed with the facilities. We did not have much equipment so it was great to be able to use the camp kitchen. It was also great from a social perspective. Our children made lots of friends and had fun exploring and finding native animals.

I stayed in the budget family room with one other person. It was big enough for the two of us but a family of 3 or 4 would have been crammed. The room had a heater which was great as it did get very cold during the night. The main issue with the room was that the floor was very dirty. I understand that it is a budget mountain retreat, but considering how much we paid, I would have expected a bit more attention to detail.
The shared bathroom facilities were good, especially the hot showers. The shared kitchen had everything we needed to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Finally, the location is excellent, close to the visitor information centre and Cradle Mountain. In the morning we came across wallabies, and wombat was not far from the park either.

Room Tip: If you are more than 2 people I would go for a cabin rather than a budget family room.

We stayed overnight in one of the cabins at this park. Compared to other cabins we have stayed at in Tassie, this cabin was small although could accommodate up to 6 people. I did notice that the floors under the bunk beds had not been cleaned as there was rubbish left on the floor. The park is otherwise in a peaceful bushland setting close to the visitors centre and not far from Cradle Mountain. Would recommend this park if you are looking for cheaper accommodation in the Cradle Mountain area.
