The entrance to Cradle Mountain Highlanders is 1.5 km before the entrance to Cradle Mountain National Park on the 132 highway. The cottages cannot be seen from the roadside; only a hand carved sign saying 'HIGHLANDERS' is situated on the right hand side of the road just past Cradle Information Centre (Shuttle bus transit terminal) and cafe bistro which is on your left. Drive up the laneway and you will find reception.
