Mount Mulligan


Main Pavilion

Whether it’s company or solitude you seek, the main pavilion is the welcoming heart of Mt Mulligan Lodge. With generous proportions, an inviting full height double-sided fireplace, lavish canvas and steel camp-style chairs, plush armchairs and a ‘help yourself’ bar and snack station, it’s the ideal space to soak up the majesty of Mount Mulligan and the tranquillity of this superb outback setting.


The main pavilion restaurant is the ultimate, luxurious take on pastoral living, with its shimmering roof, high ceilings, recycled timber beams and lavish camp-style chairs. Here guests enjoy exceptional locally sourced, caught and foraged seasonal dishes accented with native and bush foods, and complemented with boutique Australian wines. Rates include gourmet meals, quality Australian wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks.

Dress Code

Comfortable casual wear is recommended for the day, including firm walking shoes and light, loose clothing, particularly for guests embarking on outback adventures or participating in activities such as hiking and fishing. During the winter months, warm clothes for evenings and early mornings are needed. Relaxed evening wear is also encouraged for diners at the lodge.

Accommodation Types

The spacious pavilions are made for flexibility: the Outback Room is perfect for those travelling individually or couples on a romantic getaway, while the Outback Suite, with its adjoining lounge room, is ideal for those looking for additional space to unwind. The lounge is spacious, with a cosy wood-burning fire and private deck. The Outback Pavilion is the ultimate outback getaway for families and groups, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a communal lounge.
