About Kongoola

Established 40 years ago, Kongoola was formed to promote and encourage participation in snow sports and other alpine activities. It was built entirely by the members in the mid 1970’s and is currently owned and maintained by about fifty members. The lodge is managed by a committee representing the members whose prime objective is to provide you with quality accommodation whilst you enjoy your stay. The members are proud to be able to share their lodge with you.

Located in Mt Hotham’s picturesque Davenport Village area and within easy walking distance of the General Store, Kongoola provides quality lodge style accommodation to its members and guests at an affordable rate.

Kongoola Ski Club is non-smoking, self-catering / clean as you go (including a duty roster) communal lodge accommodation.  Complete with a large modern kitchen, shared dining and living areas and a separate games room complete with interchangeable pool table and tennis table. It is centrally heated and has a drying room, ski store and laundry complete with washing machine and dryer. Wireless internet access is also available whilst during winter an on-site manager is on hand to assist you with your stay.

As this is a club lodge, some light duties are required to be completed by guests to help chip in to the running of the lodge. Typically these are around 15mins every second day and can be found on the back of each room door. All bedrooms must be vacuumed and ensuites must be cleaned upon departure.

Towels and bed linen is required and can be hired through the manager. The fee of this arrangement will be added to the room booking.
