G’day Group has revealed a $20 million redevelopment at its Discovery Parks – Cradle Mountain property in Tasmania in a major boost for the region’s tourism offering.
Expected to generate an additional 60,000 tourism nights annually and more than $18 million in annual economic benefit for the region, the redevelopment includes 30 new cabins, 40 new tourist sites and upgraded amenities right across the property.
In an exciting first for the Group’s portfolio of 87 Discovery Parks and Resorts, the project also sees the launch of a new, premium cabin category.
Featuring opulent finishes, elegant open fireplaces and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows that frame uninterrupted forest views, the 11 new premium cabins are designed to draw in high-value international tourists and visitors seeking an air of luxury in one of Australia’s most sought-after nature destinations.
G’day Group Chief Strategy Officer Ben Simons said the investment would offer a much-needed boost to Cradle Mountain’s accommodation offering.
“From incredible views to some of Australia’s most regarded walking trails, Cradle Mountain is one of the most remarkable regional destinations in the country,” Simons said.
“However, as Tasmania looks to grow visitor numbers to more than 2 million annually by 2030, there is a need for continued investment in high-quality tourism product to ensure that we can not only support visitation growth but deliver an experience that is truly unforgettable.”
“This redevelopment allows us to tap into the broad demographic of visitors the Mountain attracts – from hikers looking for a spot to pitch a tent for the night, through to those seeking a luxury escape, immersed in nature.”
Gabriella Conti, CEO of West by North West Regional Tourism said the organisation was delighted to welcome the completion of the new luxurious cabins, upgraded facilities, and expanded campground at Discovery Parks – Cradle Mountain.
“This transformation is a significant addition to Cradle Mountain, addressing the demand for visitor beds and offering a diverse range of accommodation. It is great to see G’day Group show confidence in our region by their significant investment, we know there will be an increase in visitors, and it is important we can cater to the market,” Conti said.
The new deluxe cabins and tourist sites are available to book now, with cabin prices starting at $320 per night and sites from $45 per night. Premium cabins are available to book now, with guests able to stay from 20 December. Prices start from $340 per night.
