The cabins are all hand built in a traditional mountain style and feature lovely natural timbers inside and out. All cabin types are full of rustic mountain charm and have log fires except for two (which have gas heating) and three cabin types have spa baths. With wildlife at your doorstep, spectacular alpine scenery all around and a rustic mountain cabin to call home, you will really feel at one with nature when you make Cradle Mountain Highlanders your base for exploring Cradle Mountain National Park. Take a walk through ancient rainforests, scale snow-capped peaks or just curl up by the fire in your snug wooden cabin and let the peace of the forest surround you. Whether you are in the mood for self-indulgent comfort or a budget conscious family, there’s a cabin here to suit you.

Fabulous cottages nestled amongst the trees across the road from the Information Centre. We had the ‘Quoll’ cottage which is hidden down a little path through the trees. You cannot see another building, car or person walking past, only trees! It was really convenient to walk across the road to the shuttle bus. The cabin itself is very well equipped, with wood fire and very comfy beds!

We had a great experience staying in January 2022. We were really happy with the Highlanders Cottages. They are all nestled in bushland with bush screens between cottages, so you dont feel like you are jammed in together. The cabin was spacious, and had everything needed.

Spent a cosy 2 nights in ‘Buttongrass’. All cabins are private and very comfortable with rustic touches. Walking distance to Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre so no need to use car once you arrive. The log fire was very handy after a brisk walk in drizzly weather.
