Whilst times have recently been tough around the globe and keeping confined had some of us going mad; it’s important we look to rebuild both economically and mentally. We couldn’t think of a better place to get in some exploring once the madness is all over than Lake Crackenback Resort and Spa in NSW.

With wide open spaces and rolling hills all around, Lake Crackenback is perfect for nature lovers, couples looking to relax and even those who like a little adventure. Let’s take a look at what your escape to Lake Crackenback might look like.

About the location 

Tucked away on 150 acres, bordered by Thredbo River and the Kosciusko National Park, you’ll find Lake Crackenback Resort and Spa. At just 15 minutes from Thredbo Village and Perisher Ski Resort, it’s a dream getaway for snow bunnies on their Winter escape or even couples seeking adventure during any season of the year.

About the accommodation

Choose from either a Mountain Chalet or a Lakeview Apartment. Either choice boasts beautiful views of the natural surrounds whilst providing you with the ultimate comfort from indoors. Each room differs slightly in inclusions though some options do provide a fireplace, spa and outdoor dining. If you have kids in tow, there are options for two and three bedroom accommodation.

During your stay dedicate a day for pampering and relaxing at the resort’s spa. Indulge in a full spa treatment, deep tissue massage or even a refreshing facial. There’s couples packages on offer with the added treat of a sweet or savoury grazing board, or you could even make the trip down for your hens weekend and take advantage of the Girls Pamper Experience or the Mother and Daughter Spa Experience.

About the photo

We can’t help but be reminded of those warm summers in Europe when looking at the quaintly coloured accommodation that lines the lake, except it’s a much calmer, quieter vibe with a quintessential Australian backdrop.

What better way to admire the location than from the lake itself, taking advantage of the resorts free canoe hire.

Ms Floral Says: It’s so important, now more than ever, to support local and this looks like a fantastic spot to unwind (or sign up for lots of fun activities!) once life goes back to normal.
