Most of the hotels, lodges and wilderness villages on or near Cradle Mountain Rd have in-house restaurants. Pickings are slim at Lake St Clair – head to the Derwent Bridge Wilderness Hotel for a substantial meal or to the Hungry Wombat Café for snacks.

Self-caterers on Cradle Mountain will need to rely on the shop at Discovery Holiday Parks Cradle Mountain for supplies; those at Lake St Clair should head to Bronte Park.
