Cradle Cafe New Operator


The Cradle Mountain café is set to re-open in October following an expression of interest (EOI) process seeking an operator by the Parks and Wildlife Service in late May.

Parks and Wildlife Service general manager, Peter Mooney, said that Federal Hotels and Resorts was the successful respondent of the expression of interest process.

"Federal Hotels and Resorts is one of Tasmania's most experienced tourist operators and their properties include the Cradle Mountain Chateau and the Wilderness Gallery at Cradle Mountain," said Mr Mooney.

"We are very confident they will deliver a high standard of customer service in a key site at Cradle Mountain, which is the gateway to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area."

The Cradle Mountain café is located at the former airstrip. The building includes a separate information centre operated by the Parks and Wildlife Service, which serves as the terminal for the Cradle shuttle service.

This initiative is part of the State Government's commitment to progressing Tasmania Together Goal 21 - Value, protect and conserve our natural and cultural heritage.
