Located at Waste Point, just off Kosciuszko Road, spacious Creel Lodge offers all the comforts of home with the luxury of a mountain chalet. With views over Lake Jindabyne, it’s the perfect setting for an indulgent holiday with friends or a special family get-together, summer or winter.

Tuck into a hearty breakfast on the deck to fuel up for a day exploring the Snowy Mountains. Head deeper in to the national park to discover the walking tracks, including the Mount Kosciuszko Summit trail, mountain bike trails, cross-country skiing and winter sports surrounding Sawpit Creek, Perisher Valley and Charlotte Pass. Wander down the road to Creel Bay for a spot of fishing and paddling on Lake Jindabyne. You can also put your boat in here to enjoy a day on the water.

With all that fresh mountain air, you’ll be ready to cook up a feast in the big kitchen and share a memorable meal around the large dining table. After dinner, stoke up the outdoor fireplace and start planning your next day’s adventure in Kosciuszko, as the resident kangaroos graze around you.
