Australia - Cradle Mountain Huts
Join us on the iconic Overland Track, retreating each evening to the only private accommodation along the trail. Over 6 days, the rare beauty and diversity of Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park is yours to discover.
Expert guides take the lead across this ancient landscape, converting to chefs come evening. They will take the heavy load, leaving you with a light weight pack. At the end of each day, relax with a hot shower, a sumptuous meal including freshly baked bread, a glass of Tasmanian wine and a comfortable bed. We’ll take you all the way to Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest freshwater lake.
There will be afternoon tea each day, as well as some down time to relax and enjoy your surroundings before dinner is served. In the evening, you are free to cozy up with a book or gather for a game or head to bed early in preparation for the next day. Our Cradle Mountain Huts Walk guides are often thought of as our most outstanding asset. They are passionate, educated, great interpreters and cooks all rolled into one. Feedback regarding our guides is invariably positive. The guides will enhance the journey with their knowledge and understanding of the flora, fauna, geology and history of the Overland Track and the wonders of the World Heritage Area.
Operating in such a delicate environment, Cradle Mountain Huts places a great deal of importance on minimal impact track and hut practices and the huts are designed to be ecologically sustainable. Each hut is a marvel of architectural design, maximizing cross flow ventilation and operating with maximum efficiency with renewable energy. The remote location of the huts demands that they are autonomous in terms of servicing. Rain water is channeled off the roofs into tanks and the huts incorporate self-composting, water-free batching toilets. We provide phosphorous-free soap for our guests, and all waste water is separated through grease traps and sand filters. The residue is regularly removed from each site, along with all other rubbish. Gas and solar are the only sources of power, used for lighting, heating and cooking.
