Welcome to the Scout Hut Website

The purpose of this website is to provide information about “The Scout Hut” (Baden Powell Memorial Lodge or BP Lodge) located in the Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania, Australia. This website details the hut and its operation, as well as some of the history, our bookings calendar and you can also create an online booking.

The hut is predominately used by Scouting Groups, however, it is also available for booking by Scout Families and the General Public. For bush walkers doing the Overland Track, The Scout Hut is a great accommodation option at the start of the track before commencing the walk.
