Being situated next door to the Kosciuszko National Park, we have an obligation to protect the native wildlife that frequents the Resort grounds. Because of this reason, we cannot allow pets at the resort. If you have any questions relating to assistance animals, please contact the resort directly on (02) 6451 3000.

Lake Crackenback is a man-made lake that is stocked twice a year with trout. You do need a fishing license, which costs $7 for 3 days.


During winter, from the June long weekend until the October long weekend, we provide complimentary firewood.

For the rest of the year, you can purchase firewood for $30.00 per bag at Crackers General Store.

We can provide newspapers, fire starters & matches on request.

On rare occasions in winter, when it snows below the snowline you may require chains for your vehicle. Because the Resort lies outside the Kosciuszko National Park, it is not a legal requirement to carry chains to get to the Resort. If you are planning to travel within the National Park, you have to carry chains during the winter season.

Thredbo is a 20 minute drive from the Resort along the Alpine Way and 15 minutes to Perisher via the Skitube Alpine Railway (the Resort has a complimentary in-house shuttle to the skitube in winter that runs on a timetable).
