aardvark alpine lodge

Aardvark Alpine Lodge is a cosy, family-friendly lodge with fully equipped kitchens, nestled in Hotham's snowgum forests.

We're open across summer for exclusive whole lodge bookings, and in January 2022 for bed / room bookings with a manager onsite.

Snow gums

Family friendly

Sit back. Relax. Unwind. Aardvark sits at 1,770 metres altitude, perched high amongst the snowgums - making it one of Mt Hotham's highest locations.  It's here you'll discover a true alpine experience that's perfect for your family. 


Rise with the sun and witness Mt Hotham in all its glory as it's bathed in picture perfect pinks and oranges. Here at the Aardvark, the fabulously cosy fireplace and comfy armchairs are the norm. With 31 beds across 8 bedrooms on 3 split levels, the Aardvark Alpine Lodge has a warm, intimate atmosphere that you simply won't find anywhere else on the mountain. An additional mezzanine area offers space to unwind with the family and the fully equipped kitchen offers excellent cooking and storage facilities with all the comforts of home - including a dish washer, two large ovens (with multiple gas burners) alongside fridge and pantry space for each room. You'll find separate male and female communal bathrooms available as well as a 'family bathroom' with bath, shower, hand basin and toilet offered for private use by all. Aardvark Alpine Lodge remains incredibly family-friendly and terrific value for money.
