  3. Booking Terms


The guest is entirely responsible for unforeseen events or losses that may occur prior to your holiday, during your journey here or any events that occur while doing your holiday activities.

We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover you in case of mishap. Under no circumstances will Kooloora Lodge nor anyone acting on its behalf be held liable for adverse events beyond our control.


Payment of a deposit and/or other fees constitute acceptance of these terms. This applies equally to all persons included in the reservation who will be staying or using the lodge facilities.

Lift passes, ski tube and ski hire are not included in your room charge but can be purchased online at


We will process the deposit of 30% of the accommodation charge at the time of booking and a confirmation will be emailed to you. It is the responsibility of the guest to ensure all applicable discount codes and deals have been applied. Once a booking is confirmed, no subsequent discounts will be applied.

For all winter bookings made prior to June the balance is payable on 1st June. For all other winter bookings the balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. Failure to pay balance by the due date will result in cancellation. For all bookings less than 30 days prior to arrival the full accommodation charge will be made at the time of booking.


Check your booking and cancellation policy with your booking agent/platform for non-direct bookings. Approach them for any requests relating to cancellation or booking modifications.


Booking cancellations in the first 24hr are eligible for a full refund provided no cost is incurred by Kooloora Lodge. After that the 30% deposit is non refundable. The balance paid 30 days prior to arrival or on 1st June is non refundable. Where the arrival date is less than 30 days from the booking date, the full accommodation charge is non refundable.


Amendments to reservations can be requested up to 30 days prior to arrival. Acceptance of all amendments are at the discretion of Kooloora Lodge and will also depend on room availability. Amendments do not change the deposit or balance payment terms and dates unless the booking is moved to an earlier date in which case this earlier date will be used. Amendments once confirmed will attract an $80 fee per room. Additional charges will be made if the resultant tariff increases. Refunds or credits will not be given for amendments that result in a reduced tariff. Changes to arrival date may not exceed 6 calendar months from the original reservation date.

Amendments to reservations less than 30 days prior to arrival can also be requested. We understand that personal circumstances can make last minute amendments necessary. Whether we can accommodate these changes will depend on room availability and lodge operations. They are not guaranteed and there will be no changes allowed within 1 week of arrival. In addition to the above conditions a minimum fee of 15% of the booking and any costs incurred will be charged in addition to current booking charges.


Kooloora Lodge will not have any obligation to refund any amount of money which has been paid in the event of late arrival or early departure.


If any room nights or additional charges are to be paid for by a third party, or anyone else other than the person who’s name the booking was made under, the lodge must be notified more than 48 hours prior to 2:30pm on your arrival date. An email address must be provided with the notification, so that a credit card authority to charge form can be sent to the third party liable for any charges. The completed authority to charge form accompanied by any attachments required pursuant to the form must be returned to the lodge by email or fax at least 24 hours prior to 2pm on your arrival date. If the guest fails to comply with any of these requirements, we reserve the right to charge the original credit card provided for the booking. If payment cannot be taken from the original card provided, we reserve the right to deny check-in and keep any deposit or moneys already paid, as well as charge the total amount of the booking.


Contactless check-in must be completed prior to arrival. Room keys will not be issued until check-in is complete. It is the guest’s responsibility to ensure this is done.

Check-in time is no earlier than 3:30pm unless you have booked early check in. Arriving at the lodge before 3:30pm without prior arrangement will result in additional $100 cost per room. The person who’s name the room was booked under must be present and part of the travelling party staying at the lodge. A valid credit card or debit card and identification in the same name that the room was booked under will be required on arrival to complete the check-in process. If guests fail to comply with the check-in requirements, we reserve the right to deny check-in and keep any deposit or moneys already paid, as well as charge the total amount of the booking.

Guests are not to use Kooloora Lodge facilities including the dining and lounge areas once they have checked out otherwise a further charge will be incurred.

If you are arriving outside of these hours, please contact the lodge at least 24 hours prior to 2:30pm on your arrival day to arrange an after-hours key collection. We reserve the right to keep any deposit or moneys paid, as well as charge the total amount of the booking if you fail to check in during the period of your booking.


Maximum occupancy limits per room must be strictly adhered to. Failure to do so could result in cancellation of your booking with no refund.
