Anthony Cleary Is The New General Manager of Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, Australia

 The career of Anthony Cleary, the new General Manager at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, has come full circle with his return to the Snowy Mountains after operating some of Australia's most iconic hotels.

In a distinguished 30-year management career, Mr Cleary has led hotel teams and product development in General Manager roles at Thredbo, Perisher Valley, Hamilton Island and Ayers Rock, among others.

"It is great to be back in the Snowy Mountains and I am very excited about my new position at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa," said Mr Cleary.

"In recent years, I have watched Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa go from strength to strength in terms of its business success, dedication to customer service and its diverse range of special events.

"My experience in remote seasonal resorts means I fully understand the dynamic nature of the business; particularly the impact snow conditions can have on future bookings and the need to make the destination have appeal year-round."

Mr Cleary said he is looking forward to catching up with old friends and colleagues in the region and to introduce new audiences to the splendor of the Snowy Mountains and the outstanding service and facilities at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa.

"On a personal note, I can't wait to rediscover my passion for the mountains, the amazing winter and summer environs and the endless activities that the Snowy Mountains has to offer," said Mr Cleary.

Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa:

Don't expect a run of the mill resort experience when you stay at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa. The property features more than 100 rooms ranging from overwater lake view apartments to mountain-view chalets. Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa is located on the border of the Kosciuszko National Park and is just 15 minutes from the ski-fields of Thredbo or a 15 minute ski tube train ride away from Perisher Ski Resort. A free shuttle bus takes guests to the ski tube each day as the station adjoins the property. When you are not skiing or boarding, you can enjoy the extensive facilities at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa including an impressive day spa which draws on natural nurturing therapies of the Snowy Mountains, two restaurants and an array of free activities including golf, trampolines, canoeing, tennis, archery and 14 kms of mountain bike and walking trails. Before you leave Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa you should definitely try a Segway Eco Tour where you explore the local bush terrain on a no-emissions personal transporter and discover the winter beauty of the 150 acres of land around Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa on mountain bike. Another must-do activity (not in winter) is to go river sledding on the Thredbo River where you will see the beauty of the region from an incredible aspect: floating down the river on an inflatable sled and experience just a little bit of an adrenaline rush as you negotiate the rapids. During the year, Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa hosts an array of events including culinary, sporting and educational retreats.
