As I am currently in the lovely state of Tasmania, I thought why not look into dreamy wilderness honeymoon destinations. Now for those of you who love everything wintery as I do, let me introduce to you Cradle Mountain. A stunning world heritage listed national park situated 1,545 meters above sea level and there lays a luxury lodge.
Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge is said to be one of Australia’s most iconic wilderness experiences. You can take a lazy stroll or a more intense hike through the national park’s breathtaking wilderness from the lodge’s doorstep. Or if hiking isn’t your thing you can take in the views from the Waldheim Alpine Spa. They offer everything from unique massages and power-boosting facials to The Sanctuary which includes a steam room, sauna, large hot-tub and cool plunge pool, as well as a relaxation lounge.
Or maybe fine food and wine is something that would tickle your fancy? The lodge offers wine and cheese tasting, or dinner at the Highland Restaurant. Which ever you choose you’ll be served with fresh local produce and wine and what better way to get the full Tasmania experience than by enjoying a meal and glass of red, all grown and produced on the island.
The lodge offers their guests private timber cabins and suites that are surrounded by wild bushland which you can admire from the large picture windows in the bedroom. Or get a little closer to nature from your deck, where you can take in the fresh wintery air and watch the wombats waddle through the snow.
From experience I would recommend visiting this captivating location either in Winter or Autumn when it’s at its most breathtaking.
As Gustav Weindorfer said of this stunning national park, “This must be a national park for the people for all time. It is magnificent and people must know about it and enjoy it.”
