Camp Sites

Hikers have been visiting this scenic area in the heart of the heritage listed Tasmanian Wilderness area for decades, enjoying the day walks near the lake or the famed Overland Track. If you’re already carrying your own tent and sleeping gear, why not make a memorable camp nestled in the trees within short walking distance to the water’s edge. It is the ideal location for both campers and bushwalkers or for schools, clubs and family bookings. There are powered and unpowered sites for tents, caravans and small motorhomes.

A basic camp kitchen is central to the campsite and shared amenities are in a block nearby. The camp kitchen has a coin operated BBQ. Toilets and hot showers are available at a charge of $1 for six minutes. There are also coin operated laundry facilities located in the shared amenities block.

Campers booking unpowered sites should be aware that due to the Wilderness protection measures of the glacial moraine area, these sites have not been levelled, so uneven ground can be expected. For most campers it’s an understandable concession toward maintaining the wilderness in its natural state.

Powered sites are large enough to park a small or medium size caravan, but large caravans cannot be accommodated
(sites are 9m in length).

Drumlin Bunkhouse

Our Bunkhouse provides basic sleeping accommodation in keeping with the style of the rustic timber huts of the Overland track, enjoyed mostly by backpackers and hikers whose modest accommodation requirements can be met with a simple bed and heated shelter.

Accommodating between two and four guests in bunk-bed style, each room has basic heating, electric power and lighting.

If you’re seeking a slightly more private stay but are budget conscious, you can book our double or twin-share drumlin, which comes with linen already provided.

Toilets and hot showers are available in a shared amenities block a short stroll away at a charge of $1 for six minutes.

Bunkhouse guests also have access to a shared bunkhouse kitchen. Here they might mingle with other hikers and share travel adventures or swap some great ideas for a day walk, whilst enjoying the comfort and warmth of the fireplace.

Bring your own sleeping bag or bedding for a bunkhouse stay, or we can provide bedding for a small additional charge.

The Overlander Café

Our philosophy is simple: wholesome, uncomplicated food, done well.

The Overlander Café is open:
8:00am to 4:30pm
Fergy's Bar and Restaurant is open:
Mid December to end of April: 8:00am to 10:00pm
May to Mid December*: 8:30am to 6:00pm

*From May to Mid-December restaurant bookings are required. We can open the restaurant earlier for breakfast by prior arrangement

Packed lunches and BBQ trays are available on request.

Start your day at Lake St Clair right with a coffee from The Overlander Café. Treat yourself to a cappuccino, flat white, or latte. Double shot, weak, extra hot? Just ask our Barista to make your coffee just the way you like it?

The Overlander Café sets you up for a great day of adventuring in the Central Highlands of Tasmania, or as a place to rest and refuel after a walk along one of the many tracks in the area.

The café offers guests and day visitors a large range of food and drinks, including light snacks, full meals, hearty breakfasts and a great selection of cakes and desserts. The café also caters to the children with kids meals available.

If you are looking for something a bit more decadent to reward your efforts, we recommend you try Fergy's Bar and Restaurant. Dine in relaxed surroundings, beside our open fire or by our large bay windows with views through the trees to Lake St Clair and the mountains beyond. Our menu is a blend of modern ideas and fresh produce, sourced from local suppliers wherever possible and, whether in need of a light snack or a sumptuous meal, there’s something for everyone.
