Dormitory Rooms

Built specifically for backpacker travellers, the Lakefront Lodge is situated on the shores of the lake with terrific views as far as the eye can see. It's a lovely building – made from wood and stone to blend into the landscape – and sleeps 78 in a variety of room sizes.

The lodge dormitories are either in a four-bed or six-bed configuration; many have sliding doors opening on to the veranda or the barbecue area which enjoys stunning lake views.
