Take your caravan to Cradle Mountain – budget camping at Cosy Cabins

18 October 2010 No Comment

Caravan -  Cradle Mountain
Cradle Mountain Tourist Park and Campground (formerly Cosy Cabins) has powered caravan sites tucked away in quiet and private bush alcoves. Cradle Mountain is a terrific base for a caravan holiday with many activites and day walks in the area. It is an ideal way to save money on accommodation while exploring this beautiful area.

Cradle Mountain National Park is at the end of beautiful drive on good roads. It takes about an hour and a half to drive from Devonport; take the B19 and B14 south to Sheffield, then the C136 and C132 to the park entrance. It is about a 2 ½ hour drive from Launceston via the Bass Highway (A1). Take the well signposted route along the B13, then the C156 through Sheffield.

Camping is not allowed in the National Park but there are spacious sites on the edge of the Park at Cosy Cabins.

From our experience, the Campground stocks a good range of reasonably priced groceries and snacks, an admirable selection of wines, internet (small fee), and a pay phone, but check opening hours. There are great BBQ sites and a very generous camp kitchen with a huge fireplace to keep warm and chat with fellow walkers and travellers exploring the national park. The toilet blocks are clean with hair dryers and clothes drying racks, and the showers are hot. You can stock up on good drinking water from taps near rainwater tanks dotted around the complex.

If you don’t plan on taking your caravan there are many Tasmania Campervan & Motorhome Hire Deals available.
