Located in the very heart of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair Heritage WIlderness, Gowrie Park Wilderness Village is one of the premier choices of accommodation at Cradle Mountain. There are facilities for all budgets, including powered caravan sites, wilderness cabins, and special secured areas for campers and backpackers.
Gowrie Park is a privately owned site, specializing in providing fully equipped and modern facilities for tourists who are more the adventurous, wilderness loving type. There are countless kilometers of nature trails, perfect for biking and bush walking, many of which lead directly to neighboring Mt. Roland, Mt. Dyke, and Mt. Claude. Indeed, Gowrie Park is for many the premier hunting, fishing, camping, and sight seeing resort facility in Western Tasmania.
There is a wide range of facilities available to choose from, ranging from accommodation for backpackers and campers, to fully stocked and modern cabins that can comfortably fit a family of visitors. For the single backpacker making his first ever visit to the area, the park offers facility accommodations consisting of single bunk rooms, which are provided with clean linen, mattress, and pillow. Facilities for backpackers include a communal (shared) kitchen and BBQ area and laundromat.
For those who are anxious to get outdoors and get straight into the wilderness action, including swimming, fishing, hiking, and wildlife watching, there is a bus stop located directly outside your door. You can jump on and visit the nearby local vineyards, or take in all of the local mountain and lake sights in a variety of guided tours. Here at Gowrie Park, there truly is something to marvel at for everyone, from the neophyte to the experienced outdoorsman.
