Only a three-hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller has everything you need for the perfect winter trip.
Nestled in the picturesque heart of the mountain range is Mt Buller Village. Like something out of a storybook, the town offers ski in-ski out accommodation as well as a huge range of bars and restaurants.
A variety of slopes are on offer, ranging from the wide beginner Bourke St and Burnt Hut Spur to the challenge of black runs like Chamois and the back of Summit, as well as three terrain parks designed for all skill levels, a half pipe, and an ultra cross course.
More than just snow
It’s not just about the snow at Mt Buller, however, with a range of off-piste activities like rock climbing, day spas, dog sledding, cinema and retail offering something for everyone.
Visit the Alpine Museum to learn about the mountain’s history as a cattleman’s run and see the eclectic collection of ski memorabilia including wooden skis and sleds as well as historic photographs, snowmobiles and clothing.
Or take a walk called the Gnome Roam, a mystical part of the mountain village. Keep an eye out for the Gnome Crossing sign to spot the Gnome Home in a majestic Mountain Ash tree.Mt Buller is also home to the Hotel Pension Grimus which was voted Australia’s Best Ski Hotel in 2014.
But if you’re keen to hit the powder Mt Buller’s Snow Guarantee Policy—a money-back guarantee on all pre-paid accommodation, lift access, rental and lesson packages if there is insufficient snow cover—means you can book your holiday with confidence.
In peak season kids stay free, so rather than heading to the beach—again—for your next family holiday consider something a lot cooler.
Snowscene can even organise all-inclusive snow holidays to take the hassle out of your planning.
