Crackenback farm was really nice near the ski resort it has easy access to Thredbo . We liked being out in the country and the food was top notch. We would stay there again for the relaxed atmosphere and friendly owners.

Beef rib in cognac sauce was a meat lover's dream while...

Stayed at Crackenback Farm to ski at Perisher with my 15yr old daughter. Very comfortable accommodation and a terrific restaurant. Close to the ski tube, very easy to get to Perisher. Would recommend for families and couples.

I have just come home from having lunch with friends at Crackenback Farm on the Alpine Way, 10 mins out of Jindabyne. OMG - it was wonderful! The food was fabulous and the girl who looked after us was really helpful and polite. I had Pambula Oysters followed by a gorgeous, melt in the mouth Beef Shin dish - if...

Lucky enough to stay here for three nights over the Father's Day weekend. Close to the snow, rooms were warm, clean and comfortable. The food was truly amazing, and the hosts Jodie and Toby were extremely friendly. Can't wait to visit again. 😊

Gosh, I just want to go back again immediately. It's so rare to find a place that leaves you with such a technicolour glow. Beautiful place - stylish, warm, interesting and inviting.

Recently named Best Restaurant in a Guesthouse/Motel - Regional NSW, by the 2015 Restaurant & Catering Awards For Excellence, the charming Crackenback Farm Restaurant & Guesthouse is located in the beautiful Crackenback Valley five minutes from Jindabyne. The position is perfect for skiing and summer sports at either Thredbo or Perisher, being less than ten minutes drive to the Ski Tube, and only ten minutes further to Thredbo Village. Under new management since 2013, the Glenn Murcutt-designed lodge has six rooms offering every comfort, and a private lounge for in-house guest use only. A delicious Crackenback country breakfast is included.
