Wongungarra Lodge was established in 1969 and has since undergone several significant transformations to provide modern facilities whilst retaining it's traditional charm.
We are also very fortunate to have one of the best locations in the Devonport Village, with less than a minutes walk to the supermarket, nearest bar and restaurant, lift ticket purchase and ski hire. See video clip.
Best of all there's no long treks up/down hills or steps to get in and out for skiing, or unloading the car.

Why do people prefer
staying at a Lodge?
The members of the club also pride themselves on giving our guests the most positive experience possible. Students, school groups and other clubs have found our accomodation to be great for their needs too.
Getting From The Car To The Lodge - There are designated loading zones along the side of the road where you are permitted to park for about 30 minutes while you pack or unpack the car. The main loading zone is about 80 meters over flat ground from the front door of our lodge just near "Jack Frost".
We are fortunate in that we are not on the Great Alpine Road itself as this often means steps to climb, nor are we miles down the Davenport road. Instead it's a simple matter of using the Club's sled to transport your gear the short distance from the car to the lodge.
Moving In and Out - The entrance to the lodge is equipped with a combination lock for ease of access, whilst providing security. The combination of the lock is changed periodically and it will be issued to guests in time for their visit to the lodge.
The changeover time for moving in and moving out is 3.00pm.
A temporary storage facility is provided for stowage of gear for people who like to complete their final days skiing before departing the lodge or others who arrive at the lodge early in the morning of their first day.
Ski/board storage & Drying Room - Just inside the secure entrance to the left is the ski and board storage racks, complete with stainless steel drainage traps. Further in is the 'get-your-gear-on' room, adjacent to an expansive and efficient drying room for clothing.
The Kitchen and Cooking - The kitchen is really two kitchens with all facilities being duplicated including commercial grade cooktops and ovens, microwave ovens, fridges, sinks, food preparation utensils, pots/pans/woks etc, and sets of cutlery & crockery.
Food Storage - The kitchen area contains some dozen or so cupboards that can be used for keeping all non-perishable foodstuffs. In addition to the fridges in the kitchen, there is also a freezer and "drinks fridge" downstairs. Of course, there’s also the snow just outside your window for cooling drinks!
Dining – With our recent renovation we now have an extensive dining area with many tables and great outlook to the North and East.
Sleeping - The lodge has queen sized beds and single sized beds with pillows provided. Guests can bring their own linen and use the lodge doonas. We also have limited sets of linen for rent, please contact the Lodge Manager before your arrival.
Laundry - Automatic washing machine facilities and laundry detergents are provided. Clothes take no time at all to dry in the drying room or use the coin operated dryer.
