Cradle Mountain Lodge Accommodation and HotelCradle Mountain and Cradle Mountain Lodge has long been considered the pinnacle of Australian wilderness experiences.  Visitors come from all over the world to witness the spectacular scenery and ancient beauty of Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park.

You can experience the Tasmanian wilderness at its best, while enjoying the truly luxurious Cradle Mountain Lodge hotel.

A 2 hour scenic drive from Launceston or 4.5 hours from Hobart will give you a taste of what to expect from this marvellous corner of the world.  Alternatively, the Lodge provides a transfer service between Devonport and Cradle Mountain so that you can travel in modern, air-conditioned comfort (bookings are essential).

Cradle Mountain Lodge is a luxury retreat, with an eco-conscience.

Take into account the handy bio-calendar, which details the stunning flora and fauna that will be ‘on show’; making the most of your experience, whatever month of the year you visit.

The current Lodge has had its share of changes, but the main ethos has always stayed true: that all visitors should enjoy the area, immersing themselves in the natural wonder and preserving the pristine beauty of the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park.
