The Waldheim Cabins in Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park are really a unique way to visit one of the most popular and beautiful parks in Tasmania. There may be fancier, more romantic and more photogenic accommodation down at Pencil Pine, but you really can’t beat this location. The main hiking trails are literally on your doorstep. Plus, since you can simply leave the key inside the cabin when you leave, it’s the perfect place to stay before starting the Overland Track.
The Government Huts Mt Field are one of favorite weekend getaways from Hobart. Located only minutes away from Lake Dobson and Mt Field’s alpine tracks, these cheap and shabby little huts are really something unique and we can’t help but keep going back to them.
They’re so cheap, it’s a great option for couples, families and for only $225 per night you could rent out all 5 for a massive gathering with friends. If you get lucky enough to find all of them available, because we’re clearly not the only ones who love this mountain accommodation. Booking ahead is a must!
