Location is great as it is very near to the Visitor Centre where we can catch the shuttle bus to commence our walks. What we love most is the heat blanket that keeps us warm during the night. Very thoughtful.

Me and my husband stayed here one night in one of their dorm rooms (2 bunks) but had it to ourselves which was great!! A bit pricey but it included sheets and blankets and worth it for it's excellent location (and escape from the rain!) as it's almost as close as you can stay for access to the park. Staff... More

We stayed in a powered site. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We arrived after hours and we had clear instructions on where to locate our access code and how to locate our site. The camp kitchen is huge and clean - the best part is the open fire which made for a lovely cozy camping experience. They have... More

Great base to stay..eco friendly and a wildlife sanctuary. Loved Dove lake walks ..something for every level. Quiet and basic supplies and wifi available at the store but pick up groceries in Sheffield on your way. We stayed (4adults) in a cabin which would've been more suited to a young family as the toilet and shower were right beside the... More

This is the closest place to camp (with your car) to cradle mountain. Great location and the amenities are good too. Camp kitchen with fire places is wonderful. Our site was small but very private compared to most caravan parks. Although it's expensive, it probably can't be beat for price and convenience in the area.

Quite a nice little park. Love the camp kitchen but think the price per night for a powered site is a little bit expensive for what get/what we used given the only thing we really needed was the amenities.

We had one night on the Wednesday 19th October in Cabin 7. We were a bit surprised at the price when we booked, but it is worth the money. The drive from Strahan was really pretty and once to the turnoff , there was soft fluffy fresh snow everywhere, magic. Into our cabin hours early (thank you), excellent cleaning, everything... More

We had planned to camp out in our tent for 4 nights at Cradle Mountain, but upon reading the forecast of snow, that quickly changed to a Superior Cabin at the Discovery Parks. Lucky for us we did so because the weather closed in and 2 inches of snow was what greeted us the next morning. Absolutely amazing and magnificent... More

I am not mad on camping but like to take my kids to National Parks so I opt to find a cabin nearby. Cradle Mtn has a whole range of accommodation from luxury to basic.

Love it here, we checked in late and the staff were so accommodating. Kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom were all warm, clean and a great facility to use. Fantastic place and just disappointed we only stayed for one night!
