Bookings: For group bookings of 10+ or Sunday Night Dinners please call ahead on 0448 847 663.


Highlander Arms


The Highlander Arms is a great choice for an evening meal or family celebration.


There’s a lounge bar complete with an open fire to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink or as a perfect spot for a cheese platter or whisky.  The extensive atrium area is very popular, especially in summer, as well as a large seated dining area. For private dining, individuals and groups can reserve the Vintage room which features an antique style decor.


The seasonal menu features the best regional and Tasmanian produce available.  Please let us know in advance if you have special dietary requirements and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

If you prefer to prepare your own meals a large majority of our accommodation is self-contained, fully stocked with plates, cutlery, and cooking utensils.  You will, however, need to bring your own ingredients.  The nearest supermarket is at Ouse, 35 minutes away.   There is also a supermarket at New Norfolk, Queenstown and a small general store at Bronte Park. We recommend you plan ahead and check opening hours.
