Booked two 3 bedroom units for family holiday and couldn't have been more impressed. The units are so spacious, immaculate and comfortable. Each has a balcony right on the edge of the lake. There are lots of free activities including canoeing, indoor heated pool, tennis, gym, archery and trampolines. Lots of easy walks to do and close to Jindabyne and...

Novatel Lake Crackenback is an amazing place to visit in springtime and I only can imagine how beautiful it would be covered with snow. A short drive to Thredbo village, first time we have been here without snow, the village was filled with people couldn’t believe how popular this place is out of season. Restaurants and bars opened, I would...

We stayed at Lake Crackenback in mid October. It was a beautiful time of year with snow and sunshine alternating throughout the day. Highlights were the fly fishing lesson with Matt, archery, walking trails and the spa. The buffet breakfast is included and is a feast. The only disappointment was the indoor pool and gym were closed at the time...

Rented a home here privately which was lovely. Lake Crackenbrack is a pretty spot not far from Thredbo and quieter. However the resort could be kept a bit smarter. Lots if litter around which distracted from the pretty spot it is.

Dear cjpric, Thank you for your comments regarding the Resort. We have recently been experiencing very strong winds which is why you would have seen litter around the Resort. Our staff are out each day tidying the Resort after these winds. Thank you Kind regards The Team at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa

Lake Crackenback is a lovely destination. A great a la carte restaurant which serves amazing food much of it sourced from the local area and the Alpine Larder which has fantasic pizza and terrific cafe morsels. Licenced. Coffee is great. There is also a spa so you can be pampered, mountain bike trails, archery, golf. Fantastic.
