On-Mountain Lodging

There is some very basic and rustic on-mountain accommodation at Craigieburn ski area. The lodges have private and shared bunk rooms, and a very friendly environment. You can book these lodges via the Craigieburn website.

Off-Mountain Lodging

The closest off-mountain option for accommodation is Flock Hill lodge (5 mins drive from the ski area entrance). Located in a beautiful setting on a working farm, the lodge offers very reasonably priced motel and cottage units, and backpacker accommodation. It is very inexpensive and provides a variety of accommodation options.

Flock hill Lodge, Craigieburn Flockhill Lodge & Backpackers                              $-$$
Located only 3km from Craigieburn turnoff, it offers self-cater 2, 3 & 4 br cottages & backpacker (in shearers quarters) style accommodation on a magnificent working farm. It also has a nice restaurant & bar on site.

Arthur's Pass (0:35 drive)

An option 36km to the North-West of Craigieburn is Arthur's Pass. The natural beauty of this place is spectacular (and there are a couple of restaurants/cafes in the village) however be aware that the pass can close (generally no more than a few hours) in the event of heavy snow-falls. You must carry chains during winter if you are crossing Arthur's Pass and a 4wd is preferable (which is preferable for getting to Craigieburn ski area anyway). Click here to see Arthur's Pass accommodation.

Springfield (0:50 drive)

Slightly further afield is the rural town of Springfield that was put on the map by a Simpson’s doughnut (or donut as Homer would spell it). Thankfully this town doesn't have too much in common with the Springfield town featured in the Simpsons cartoon. A very nice little motel (more like a bnb) is the Springfield Lodge & Motel.

Methven (1:30 drive)

Most people who visit Craigieburn would generally base themselves in Methven (which is the base town for Mt Hutt) where there is a good variety of restaurants and bars. From Methven you can ski Mt Hutt plus some of the other club fields in the area.
