Mt Buller – Hit the slopes

Dream about getting away from the heat and the dust? How does waking up to snow-covered trees and sweeping views across the alps sound for a seriously good escape this winter?

Mt Buller is Australia’s most accessible alpine resort and is a surprisingly easy 3-hour drive from Melbourne Airport.  Hire a car and cruise up through wine country or let one of the regular coach services whisk you to the slopes while you kick back and take in the scenery.  Leave in the morning and by lunch you’ll be carving turns and planning where to catch the sunset for après drinks!

Mt Buller is a mountain with something for everyone.  You’ll find over 300 hectares of terrain to explore with runs ranging from mellow beginner trails to heart-pounding leg burners for the experts.  When that mountain appetite kicks in there are over 40 restaurants and bars to choose from with everything from traditional Austrian fare and high-end dining to hearty pub-grub and family friendly pizza.When you are ready to fall into bed Mt Buller offers the most on-mountain accommodation of any resort in Australia and a picture-perfect alpine village nestled high up in the snowline.
