Casa Verde Alpine Retreat at The Gateway to Cradle

Just 20 minutes from Cradle, Casa Verde Alpine Retreat at Moina is your own private retreat away from the crowd yet close enough to discover local fares and activities.

A bushwalker and photographer's paradise, in this area you'll be surrounded by nature's finest - lakes, spectacular views, mountain ranges, magnificient forests with giant treeferns and abundant wildlife. Lake Gairdner is just 2 minutes away.

And you can enjoy nature discovery walks even without leaving the property. Discover mosses, lichens and fungi, different types of ferns, the animal and bird life which changes from day to night. And the evening sky.... well, you just have to be there!

The local area offers many attractions and activities just waiting to be explored: rowing, fishing, waterfalls, wild rivers, caves, Leven Canyon and numerous walking trails both in and around the world heritage Cradle Mountain National Park.

Or you can spoil yourself with local wines, cheeses, chocolate, salmon, trout and honey: all within a 1 hour drive.

If its animals and birds you want to see, Casa Verde Alpine Retreat is just the place. There's echidnas busily foraging for ants, kookaburras, rare robins and wrens and many other bird species. You can relax on our large, spacious deck and watch the wildlife as evening brings dozens of wallabies hopping through and if you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the famous Tasmanian Devil or perhaps a spotted quoll!

Being centrally located at Moina, the Gateway to Cradle Country, means you can visit Cradle Mountain and maybe walk the famous trails located in the park, AND you are close enough to also explore other of Nature's spectacular offerings like the Mole Creek caves, the Walls of Jerusulem and Leven Canyon. There is majestic scenery all around with Lakes Cethana and Barrington, Black Bluff and Bell Mountain and the stunning Erriba Plateau in close proximity.

And you're close to the many other local attractions including Tazmazia, the Honey Factory and Wilmot Hills Winery.

You're also just a 30 minutes scenic drive from famous Sheffield, the 'Town of Murals' and only 1 hour from the NorthWest Coast with its towns and beautiful beaches.

If its the famous rugged West Coast with historic fishing village of Strahan and mining town of Rosebery that draws you, Casa Verde Alpine Retreat at Moina will mean its only 1.5 hours away.

At around 600 metres, you'll be on the snow-line. Snow magically transforms the whole area into a mystical white wonderland. Maybe you might want to take advantage of some 'snowplay' or snuggle by the warm fire with a good book and glass of local wine.

Getting Here

If you're flying from the Mainland, you'll probably arrive at Launceston, just under 2 hours scenic drive away. Hire cars are available at the airport and a bus travels regularly to the Cradle area.

If you fly into Hobart, you'll no doubt be travelling through other magnificient regions before reaching us . If you're coming up from the West Coast, the last main town is Rosebery and it will then take approximately 1.5 hours through the spectacular Cradle Mtn National Park area to Casa Verde Alpine Retreat.

Devonport is where you arrive if you come by ferry. Take the highway to Cradle Mountain and you'll arrive here in just under 1 hour.

Cradle Mountain National Park is only 20 minutes from Casa Verde Alpine Retreat which is located at the heart of the Moina Junction right at the Gateway to Cradle Country.

As there are no shops in the vicinity supplies should be purchased before arriving.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent We had a lovely time. It happened to snow the first night we were there. Woke up to a Winter Wonderland that was just amasing. By the time we left 4 days later most of the snow had melted. The fire was lovely and the house was very clean and tidy. Would definately go back.
