Mountain View Motel (Queenstown) offers motel and backpacker accommodation at Queenstown on Tasmania’s west coast.The extraordinary moonscape hills of this historic mining town surround you, just as they did when the motel served as single mens quarters in the late 1940s. Converted to spacious motel units (35 ensuite rooms) and backpacker accommodation (11 dormitories), the quarters are a great deal more comfortable nowadays, with all modern conveniences including electric blankets to keep you warm at night. The miners did not have the choice of a BYO bistro restaurant, barbecue facilities and a campers kitchen. Queenstown is a fascinating place with lots to explore. Ride the historic west coast wilderness railway, tour a mine, visit a world heritage rainforest at Bird River, marvel at the Lake Margaret Power Station nearby or fish at Lake Burbury half an hour away. Take a cruise on the Gordon River at nearby Strahan.
