Cost of hire is $90 per night for two people, with extra occupants at $15 each. Linen can be hired for $15 per person. All the usual gear one packs into a camper trailer is on hand plus tea, coffee and sugar for a welcoming cuppa.
By booking one week ahead, gourmet meals from locally sourced produce are available at $35 for two courses, as well as lunches, morning and afternoon teas and breakfasts.
My husband always accuses me of packing the kitchen sink when we travel. When you hire a Mt Barney Lodge Glamper, you need only provide your food and drinks in your own Esky, your own linen if that is what you desire, and warm clothing if camping overnight in the cooler months. The winter days can be quite mild and sunny, so be prepared for either event. There is nothing like a brisk walk to warm up, so don't overdress for hiking, wear sturdy shoes, and be well prepared for hiking in what can be changeable circumstances.
The amenities at Mt Barney Lodge are clean and comfortable, with welcome warm showers at the end of a day's exertion.
The owners of Mt Barney Lodge, Innes and Tracey Larkin, are determined to tread as lightly as possible on their special piece of nature by employing eco friendly tactics which have minimal impact. Hence the facility has been awarded National Ecotourism Accreditation Program certification for best practice in ecotourism.
As well as activities organised by the management, one can take their advice and go walking within the National Park. On the first afternoon we walked in the Yellow Pinch Reserve, taking in the wide assortment of bird life as well as the amazing scenery.
