Background to pending Booking Policy changes


13 Feb – Public Health requirements

Whilst the uncertainty with respect to Tasmanian border restrictions will most likely remain for some time, we currently remain open to bookings from all States and Territories. However, our existing cancellation policy will apply for any cancelled bookings due to border restrictions (i.e. full deposit refund will be provided if booking cancelled more than 4 weeks in advance;  if less than 4 weeks, a deposit refund will be provided if we can re-book the nights cancelled).  In the event that The Scout Hut is required to close due to the National Park or accommodation facilities being directed to close then a full refund of the deposit will be made.

The following current public health requirement still remains in place:

  • Maximum occupancy of the hut remains at 12 people.

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.
