Skip the bustle and manufactured experiences at Cradle. A short distance away is Mountain Valley, with platypus, quoll, devils, possum, wombat, glow worms and more steps outside your door. Amazing near-private hikes for all ages and fitness levels. Comfy cabins and warm welcomes. Truly stunning surroundings and Pat and Len are simply the best---we actually came back to marry on...

Their website does not exaggerate. You really can see a number of species of Tasmanian mammals here. We were lucky to have a very quiet weekend, with the manager momentarily to ourselves, so our experience may not be typical. After sunset, and just outside our cabin, were pademelons, then later a brush-tailed possum, then later Tasmanian devils, along with a...

Great location near the Leven River and a REAL dedicated wild life refuge and well off the beaten track. We stayed 2 nights. Soon after we arrived Len took us down to the river where we saw a platypus feeding on the far side. Both nights we saw spotted quolls, pademelons and possums feeding right outside our window. The second...

Today it is getting more dificult to escape the crowds.....this is the place to do it. Experience the feeling of wilderness and view Tasmanias iconic animals up close. Good birding as well. The cabins are aging but they are perfectly adequate and fit into the wilderness style. We stayed 3 nights which was just right. We took advantage of the...

We stayed four nights at Mountain Valley and thoroughly enjoyed it. The highlights of course, were the animals, attracted to the cabins by the meat put out by the owners. For some reason, we had a whole parade of animals the first night, and hardly any the second! The first night we saw quolls, Tassie Devils, several different possums (one...

For anyone who likes away from it all, with animals on tap, then this is a must. One of the highlights of the stay is nightly visits from wild Tassie Devils and if you're lucky Spotted Tailed Quolls, Ring Tailed Possums etc. There are also platypus in the river and a variety of birds. The cabins are self catering, but...

We stayed in one of these cabins for two nights. I wish we had stayed longer. After looking back on our entire month in Australia, we enjoyed the two nights here more than anything else, including the Great Barrier Reef! The reasons include: ability to see rare native wildlife in the wild! close to hiking trails in beautiful areas, quite...

We have just come back to England after a fantastic holiday in Tasmania including time on Flinders Island, and visits to Stanley, Corinna, Tasman Peninsula, SW Wilderness and more. It was all wonderful but if we could ever come back and could only revisit one of the places we stayed in it would have to be Mountain Valley. As others...

Mountain Valley is one of our most favourite destinations, both as a family, and to recommend to others. It's hardly surprising visitor reviews are overwhelmingly excellent. This is a destination like no other. It's the ONLY place in Tasmania to see WILD Tasmanian Devils. You don't expect conventional luxury but you will get the advantage of a level of personal...

We have only just returned to the UK from a trip to Aus and Tasmania. Staying at Mountain Valley was one of the highlights of our long trip. Pat and Len could not have been more helpful. The cabin was very spacious with fabulous log fires which we lit but probably didn't need. It was just fun. And thanks to...
