Cradle Mountain Lodge
Travelers who want to trade the urban confines of Hobart or Launceston for a more rugged Tasmanian experience (without sacrificing on comfort) would do well to consider a weekend away at Cradle Mountain Lodge, a wilderness hotel resort and spa that first opened its doors in 1972 as The Pencil Pine Lodge. The property is tucked away in the Tasmania's Central Highlands wilderness on the edge of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, and it's not uncommon to see the odd rambling wombat or wallaby (or, occasionally, more elusive Tasmanian devils) in the immediate surroundings.

While the forested location and ample area hiking opportunities are enough to draw many travelers to the property, Cradle Mountain Lodge operates as a destination unto itself, with a gorgeous spa complete with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the area's wilderness. The on-site Highland Restaurant is equally noteworthy, with an extensive wine list and a high emphasis on locally harvested ingredients. Accommodations range from hotel-style suites (some with their own Jacuzzis) to standalone cottages with up to two bedrooms.
