"Excellent Location" Novotel Lake Crackenback Resort Snowy Mountains Tip by lesaandbill

This hotel was a great find. We got a 1 bedroom with a loft...and it could've slept a family with 4 kids easy. There were 2 bathrooms, a big family room with a fireplace and full size kitchen. They had a grocery store on site with a few basics, and nice wine and coffee.

There was archery, tons of hiking, and bike (even tandem bikes) for $5AUD for 4 hours. They give shuttle rides to the tube which connects to the Perisher. There was not enough snow when we went...so we thought the $38AUD per person to save 30 minutes off the drive was over the top...but it's cheap if you plan to ski. It's only $81 for the mountain pass and tube.

The hotel was convenient, as it was 1/2way between thredbo and perisher. Since it wasn't ideal skiing yet...(2nd week of june)...it was fun to explore the area. On the grounds of the hotel...there was enough to see and do for days.
