About

​​​​Nestled between buttongrass plains and ancient temperate rainforest are the rustic and unique Waldheim Cabins. These cabins offer an authentic wilderness experience, allowing you to stay within Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.

Eight cabins (four, six and eight berth) provide simple and affordable lodgings, where a number of great walking tracks radiate from your front door. The cabins are equipped with electric heating, single bunk beds, basic cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and an electric stove. There are small fridges available in each cabin but no general-use power points.

Please bring your own bedding and toiletries. Linen can be provided at a cost of $11 per person and should be organised at the time of booking.

Two amenities blocks, each with showers and flushing toilets are available for cabin guests.

Please note that all cabins are non-smoking.
