    Hey Hothamites. A Sydney dad here, bringing wife and 2 kids to hike Feathertop via Razorback over Easter. Yeah!

    We're looking for a lodge to accommodate us on the night before and after our hike. Problem is, we don't know exactly what nights that will be. Could be Thurs/Sat, could be Fri/Sun. Depends mostly on the weather.

    So basically, I'm just wondering if any of u guys can recommend a nice friendly clubbie that is usually not chockers at Easter, and that might therefore be a touch flexible with bookings. Cheers and thanks in advance.

    I'd just email a few of them. Even at easter it's just about a ghost town at Hotham.

    I'm a member at Wongungarra and there will be people up over Easter. Lodge may not be open until late on Thursday though by the time somebody gets up.

    I believe rates are half that of Winter rates.

    From memory a lot of the lodges have working bees in over Easter. Should still be plenty of beds available

    Thanks for all your suggestions so far guys. Will send out a few emails. Dinner Plain is a big fat "no thanks". Kinda lookin for nothing going on rather than everything. Looks like Pegasus is fully booked by a Wagga cycling group @mr. Glad it ain't me riding up from Harrietville. I'm guessing that'd be the biggest vertical in Australia in a short ride.

    Yeah Trapdoor was originally designed in the 60s by mrs mr's father, a founding member, then extended late 90s early noughties. We used to be members and stay there, but last 12 years or so been doing pegasus due to friends, and also went to peninsula a few times last year in shoulder season school hols
