The Chalet

“I love being able to explore the magical Antarctic beech forests in the misty rain – then close the door of my cabin and have a hot shower to warm up!”

Sitting on the edge of the escarpment, The Chalet is a cosy cabin surrounded by tall forest. Just the right size for small families and couples, it’s a perfect accommodation choice for those looking to get away from it all and immerse themselves in the wild.

Head off on Weeping Rock walking track just near the cabin and join Lyrebird walking track for a journey that will take you along the cliff face with its dripping waters and icicles, through lush ferns in World Heritage rainforest, and finish with spectacular views from Point lookout.

Relax on the deck, admire the beautiful mountain views and watch for the evening serenade of the local lyrebirds.

Snuggle up under your warm doona for a comfy night’s sleep, then wake to the sound of birdsong in the trees and a hot brekkie, ready for another unforgettable day in nature.
