Thank you for your review Ewaldus, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Ecocrackenback. We look forward to your future travels to the Snowy Mountains.

Great spot and location

Jim - 25th April 2021

The location is close to both Jindabyne and Thredbo. Cabins are well insulated and once the under floor heating kicks in are more than warm enough and well appointed. Enjoyed our brief stay and recommend it.

Would be amazing in winter but so hot in summer

Kevin - 7th April 2021

We booked and paid for another cabin but were unfortunately moved because the owner wanted to come up the same weekend. Very disappointing as we wanted some shade and a way for our 2 year old to be able to go play outside off the deck. Our deck was raised off the ground (without stairs) and was rough metal on the surface so we couldn’t let him out on it. The overall place was nice but was extremely hot in the sun and no good way of cooling it during the day. It would be great in the winter but was too hot in the summer.

Ecocrackenback far exceeded our expectations, the cabin layout is excellent for 2 couples, the heated concrete floor was fabulous. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the cabin kept its warmth even though it was close to zero outside, the small ethanol fire was amazing. The manager was great and happy to answer some questions that we had about the property. Highly recommended.

Fabulous Accommodation

Philip - 29th August 2020

Stayed 5 nights at the Eco Crackenback chalets. Very clean, comfortable and check in was a breeze. Reception staff were very helpful. Awesome location with views to die for. Will definitely be coming back

Divine heated floors!

Glynis - 21st August 2020

Heated floors, ethanol fire, lovely big sofa & outlook on beautiful trees made this a very cosy place. But the kitchen is very basically equipped, the sofa cushions need replacing and the rug in the living area is quite grubby. And pack extra toilet rolls & bin liners. Being across from Wild Brumby Distillery & Cafe was a bonus. Delicious schnapps & great food.

Fantastic lodges in a fantastic place

Tim - 9th March 2020

Very modern, well appointed and spacious lodges. Located in a perfect setting with lots to do in the immediate location and in surrounding areas.

Crack a 'lackin

Excellent location, comfortable modern property.

Dave - 14th June 2019

Excellent location, great accommodation. We'll be back soon.

Super relaxing getaway

RV33 - 24th April 2019

This place definitely ticked all the boxes for a quiet family getaway; close to everywhere we wanted to go, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and seclusion of the bush setting. Really comfortable and private space, we'll definitely be back!

The Ecocrackenback chalets are great value and are a comfortable space.

Beautiful bush setting

Antony - 6th November 2018

Ecocrackenback was a perfect getaway spot for two couples - peaceful, clean, great beds and in a beautiful setting. The people there were very friendly and offered us complete privacy. I recommend this location to all.

Great Weekend Escape

NS22 - 10th July 2018

This was the perfect place for our snow weekend getaway!


Packer2017 - 18th September 2017

We stayed as a family for three nights and it was perfect, spacious and well equipped. Beautiful location amongst the trees but still close to town and the ski tube. Onsite managers make everything easy and well explained to make our stay very enjoyable. We will be back again.

Very comfortable

NMC - 15th August 2016

Just leaving today after a short get away with a couple and a friend. Very spacious including bathroom, well set up, beds and lounge are amazingly comfortable. Will definitely choose this one again - well done
