Mt Buller

Situated high in the snowfields of Victoria, the village is charming with quaint lodges, luxurious hotels and modern apartments positioned so you can ski from the slopes to your door. There is a fantastic selection of restaurants, cafes and bars and a variety of shops.

An easy 3 hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is the closest major alpine resort to any capital city and international airport. There are daily shuttles direct from the airport or if you live in Melbourne why not leave the car at home.

The slopes range from gentle and groomed to steep and fast. With rugged ridges, cliff drops and tree runs, Mt Buller is a natural playground. There is an extensive and maintained freeride park, with an earth-formed half pipe, rail park, skiercross course and jumps.

There is an abundance of activities on offer both on and off the slopes including cross country skiing, snowtubing, snowshoeing and tobogganing, as well as Australia’s highest cinema screening the latest movies, a gymnasium and a huge indoor sports complex at La Trobe University’s Mt Buller campus.

Whether you’re into flying down perfectly groomed runs, getting air in the rail park, snowshoeing in the high country wilderness, lazing around by the fire, or dancing all night- there is no better place to live it up than Mt Buller.
