About Crackenback Farm

Welcome to Crackenback Farm Restaurant & Guesthouse. Here in the Snowy Mountains we are lucky to have some of the most stunning natural landscapes in the world, enjoying pristine countryside and abundant wildlife all around us.

It has been a lifelong passion of mine to create the perfect synergy between great country food & hospitality, and our stunning landscapes & mountain lifestyle. Crackenback Farm Restaurant & Guesthouse is the realisation of that dream.

I have been in the hospitality industry all my life. As daughter of food and wine man Len Evans, it is in my DNA! As a trained chef I have worked in catering and restaurants in Sydney, Adelaide, Thredbo, the Hunter Valley, London and the French Alps, settling back in the Snowy Mountainsin 2013 to bring my own touch to food and lodgings in the beautiful Crackenback Valley.

The Guest House

Crackenback Farm Restaurant & Guesthouse is located on beautiful acreage, a short distance from both Jindabyne and Thredbo.

World renowned architect Glenn Murcott remodelled the property, formally a classic woolshed, in the 1980’s and there has been a charming and popular guesthouse since then.

We have a six-room guesthouse on 80 acres of land surrounded by natural bushland, kangaroos, wallabys, wombats, deer and even emus. In the warmer months you can go trout fishing nearby on LakeEucumbene, kayaking on Lake Jindabyne, or enjoy a little mountain biking, hiking or scenic photography. We’re only 5 minutes from the Perisher ski tube, and 15 minutes from Thredbo, so you can indulge your passion for winter sports in the cooler months.

The Restaurant

Crackenback Farm Restaurant opened in July 2013, serving authentic French farmhouse cuisine and fine wines. We want your alpine experience to be a year-found memorable adventure. Choose from our extensive wine list and enjoy the stunning valley views with a glass on our sun-filled patio in summer, or in front of a cosy open fire in winter.

I’m proud to say we recently won “Best Restaurant in a Guest House / Motel” in the 2015 Restaurants & Catering Awards for Excellence.

We’d love to see you here soon, so why not take a break from the hustle and bustle of your fast paced lifestyle and come and enjoy everything we have to offer…
