free camping cradle mountain

There is no free camping at Cradle Mountain itself, other than campsites within the park provided as part of completing the Overland Track Tasmania. There are commercial camping options at the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Village. Camping is also available at nearby Lake Gairdner, where you can camp for no cost at this beautiful campsite – please note there are no facilities at Lake Gairdner and the area is quite small. Lake Gairdner is not suitable to big rigs, as the narrow gravel road leading to the camping area is simply not suited to large vehicles. Another free camping option is at the Hellyer Gorge free overnight stop on the Lyell Highway, that is located within a relatively short drive of Cradle Mountain. Another option is Waratah Campground, however, this is a reasonable distance from Cradle Mountain and does attract a small fee. If you are heading towards Cradle Mountain from the West Coast, or far North-West Coast, we highly recommend Waratah Campground. It’s one of a few places where you can camp immediately next to a beautiful lake and where it is one of the best place see platypus in Tasmania at dawn and dusk. There are cabins at Cradle Mountain, Waldheim Cabins, that are located some 5 km inside the Cradle Mountain National Park and bookings are necessary. The cabins are located inside the park, so National Park fees apply. The cabins are equipped with electric heating, single bunk beds, basic cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and an electric stove. There is also an amenities block that has showers and flushing toilets. Linen can be provided at an additional charge (app. AUD$11.00 per person). Waldheim Cabins have permanent electricity, and electric refrigerators. For further information and bookings, phone (03) 6491 2158. Please note that Waldheim Cabins are extremely popular, and generally necessitate bookings well in advance of when you are planning to stay. See also: Camping Gowrie Park : Camping Lake St Clair:
