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 amenitie​s blocks, each with showers and flushing toilets are available for cabin guests.

Please note that all cabins are non-smoking.

Changes due to COVID-19

PWS are taking utmost care to clean cabins and surfaces following each visitors stay. All guests to Waldheim are responsible for maintaining appropriate COVID hygiene practises including providing personal sanitising agents and keeping the cabins clean during your stay. All dishes must be left clean and safe for other guests to use.​

Due to COVID-19, we have made some small changes to the Waldheim Cabins. These changes have been implemented to improve the safety of visitors. 

  • ​Strict check-out time of 10am

  • Strict check-in time of 2pm

  • A minimum 2 night stay (please contact the Kentish Information Centre (03) 6491 1179 for one night Overland Track bookings enquires quoting your overland track booking confirmation number)​​

  • Rubbish and recycling can be disposed of on your behalf for a fee of $20. If you choose not to select this fee during your booking process, please ensure you take all your rubbish with you upon your check out. Leave no Trace.

  • ​​​Linen is required to be booked for each person but only once for the duration of stay. Linen must be ordered during your booking process.

We understand that there may be delays for you due to some of these changes. We appreciate your patience as the cleaning of the Waldheim Cabins is a critical component of the reopening. Know that we’re doing our best to keep you safe. 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but all decisions have been made in the interest of your safety.​
