Family time at The Headwaters Lodge

The Headwaters dining room and lounge area is a sunny and versatile space for families to reconnect each morning with delicious hot breakfast buffets and unwind with gourmet dinners created by executive chef Pete Gawron.

All dietaries are well catered, and on special evenings we may be able to arrange for a pre-prepared BBQ hamper so your family can enjoy an outdoor cookout in our beautiful stone-built campfire shelter with toasted marshmallows all around.

You can purchase additional snacks, gourmet pies, baked goods, ice-creams, and espresso from the charming Mrs Woolly's General Store next door to The Lodge. We can arrange babysitting services should you wish to venture down the road to the local pub in the evening.



The Headwaters Lodge has ample outdoor green space for kids to play and explore, plus an indoor area with board games, books and bean bags to relax in. Our fun family movie nights in The Lodge are projected on a huge state-of-the-art screen and can include special treats or popcorn (with parents’ consent).

Glenorchy has a large playground, a skatepark and various walking tracks right beside the lake and the lagoon, where you can go bird spotting for swans and native birds and take in the 360 degrees of mountain views. Check out the full list of activities here.


What are guests say...

"We booked the Family Getaway package and highly recommend it. Made for a very relaxing weekend away because breakfast and a dinner were included - one less thing to organise! Loved the accommodation in the ecolodge and learnt a lot about sustainable buildings. We stayed for a friend's 40th birthday and we had an absolute blast! Did lots of biking, and enjoyed a bit of shopping at Mrs Woolly's General Store. Staff were very friendly and catered to all our needs with a smile. Looking forward to getting back there soon :) "

Our Reviews

Love the folks at Camp Glenorchy. Always welcomed with a smile! The retreat is fantastic and a wonder but its people is where it is really special! It is a great place to slow down and soak in the beauty of the buildings and its surrounds. Fresh cookies in the rooms can't be beat!
