Special deals at one of Tasmania's icon destinations

I've been visiting Cradle Mountain Lodge for three decades, during which it has evolved without losing any of its charm.

A while back there was basic accommodation; no TV signal, no mobile phone access and no wifi.

Times change, but what was once a collection of basic wilderness shacks has been transformed to a quintessentially Tasmanian luxury experience.

One of the state’s iconic retreats underwent a facelift during the Covid-19 shutdown with a multimillion-dollar upgrade to its accommodation, dining, and spa facilities.

The five new King Billy Suites (below) are a delight. These offer central fireplaces, outdoor spa baths and elevated mini bars featuring a variety of items from high-end Tasmanian producers. Think heated towel rails, satellite TVs and serious rural spoiling.

With walking trails and waterfalls at your doorstep, you don’t have to look too hard to find wombats, wallabies, possums, pademelons and a Tassie Devil or two - and you can still chill out in the expanded Waldheim Alpine Spa, which has has a range of couples treatment options enhanced by the sensational views of the King Billy pines and fresh mountain streams in the heart of the Tasmanian wilderness.

Spring is among the most beautiful times of the year in this delightful part of the world with brilliant displays of wildflowers including waratahs, boronia, orchids, banksias, flowering snow gums and much more.

Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is also a bushwalker’s paradise with trails to suit every age and pace, and ability. Click here to view a range of self-guided walks at Cradle Mountain.

All the cabins are set discreetly in the wilderness - and none are more than a few minutes from the lodge itself. 

Cradle Mountain Lodge has taken additional steps to improve the hotel experience and general safety of guests, including advanced technology, an increased cleaning schedule and the provision of hand sanitisers around the property. 

The special offer for Tasmanians and anyone given an exemption to visit the state is: Stay two nights or more during spring and save up to 15% off the best rate of the day! Valid for stays until November 30.
