Our home for the camp will be Southern Alps Lodge at Charlotte Pass located within the beautiful Kosciuszko National Park. The lodge is set in the small village below Charlotte Pass with fabulous views of the valley and mountain bowl. Here we have private rooms with ensuites and a number of facilities detailed below. Please note that there are a number of stairs to get up to the lodge and a number of stairs within it. We apologise that there is no disability or wheelchair access. We can provide assistance getting your bags in and out of the lodge.
Accommodation is booked by beds with preferences for sharing or not, rather than by room, so that we can accommodate participants, partners and families in the rooms available to us.
If you would like alternate accommodation, there is Stillwell Lodge next door which offers a dinner, bed & b’fast package. It is more expensive but very comfortable. Stillwell.net.au or (02) 6457 5073. About half an hour away between Perisher and Jindabyne is the Kosciusko Mountain Retreat which has camping, powered sites and cabins. firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 6456 2224
