Restful, well located and perfectly functional for a week's stay.

Location was fabulous. Cabin was super clean and comfortable. There were kangaroos right outside our windows, it was very quiet and had everything we needed. We are thinking of booking again.

Cosy and clean

Catherine - 15th June 2021

Well stocked and clean, this place has everything you need . We stayed in June, and the under floor heating and fireplace was perfect . Deer and kangaroos outside your window. Close enough to the slopes and other amenities, but far enough for peace and quiet.

Fabulous family holiday

Kylie - 7th April 2021

We absolutely loved staying at Eco Crackenback. The accommodation is perfect for self catering holidays with plenty of space to relax, and an excellent location - quiet, but close to all the summer activities. We stayed in no.16 which had a grass area in front where our children could play in view and met other children who were staying on the property. The only negative was that the kitchen was sparsely decked out so basic items like kitchen disinfectant, paper towel and cling wrap were missing. If you're looking to stay for more than a few days and enjoying family meals at home you'll need to supply these essentials.

Peaceful retreat

Brooke1000 - 8th February 2021

We spent 3 nights at Ecocrackenback in early January (#16). The property is located in a picturesque spot 10 mins from Jindabyne and 20 mins to Thredbo. We loved watching the kangaroos visit each morning and evening and the kids loved making friends with the resident dog. There was plenty of room for the kids to run around and play ball games. The habitats were adequately equipped for a short stay. Although it seemed like most of the other habitats were occupied, we rarely saw anyone else. We enjoyed dinner one night at Crackenback Farm just across the road and can highly recommend. I would recommend for a short stay while visiting the Crackenback area.

A great stay in Crackenback

Anna - 2nd November 2020

We had a great three night stay at Ecocrackenback! Our cabin had everything we needed and extra amenities like heated floors and towel racks made it the perfect getaway choice. The location is perfect for Jindabyne, Thredbo and Perisher and the grounds themselves are beautiful. Kathleen went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay (who knew Kangaroos could growl?!) and wed love to come back!

Deluxe chalet???

MarieChristine - 12th November 2019

Cleanliness is not good, some dust all over the chalet and toilets are not clean. We dont understand what "Deluxe" means, because we need ustensils like tea pot, lid or lemon-squeeze..and the reception says:"we have not". We are disappointed. We are sorry but we dont recomend it.

Amazing setting - eco with quality
