Camping & caravan parks
Just a short walk from the old mining town, the pet and family-friendly Queenstown Cabin and Tourist Park overlooking Mount Owen is a fabulous choice for travellers on a budget.
There is also the low-cost (around $6) Lake Burbury Camping area around a 15-minute drive from town or the Thureau Hills Campground, which has free camping, but limited facilities.
Out Strahan way, the Macquarie Heads Camping Ground has unpowered bush camping sites for around $15 a day, with areas for tents, caravans and motorhomes. The Strahan Beach Tourist Park has economical cabins, powered and unpowered sites, a playground and a games room.
For a spot of glamping in the warmer months, head to Zeehan Bush Camp for their ready-set up tents. In colder seasons, you can book their cabins.
Hotels & motels
Sleep next to the waters of Lake Rosebery at Tullah Lakeside Lodge. Close to kayaking, hiking and Montezuma Falls, this charming three-star hotel has a variety of rooms and powered camping sites.
A National Trust mansion that dates back to 1898, the Penghana Bed and Breakfast, overlooks Queenstown and was originally built for the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company.
Self-contained & luxury accommodation
Originally built for the Harbour Master at the end of the 19th century, Franklin Manor in Strahan is today a boutique property with plenty of old-world elegant touches.
Follow up a chilly day exploring mining history with an art-deco stay in the toasty Peppermint Cottage, in the centre of Queenstown. Bookable on Airbnb, this self-contained house is mega-cosy, with a wood fireplace to boot.
