Mt Buller

Easy to get to, so hard to leave! Mt Buller is the most accessible ski resort in Australia. Located 3 hours’ drive from Melbourne, no other Australian ski resort is closer to a capital city or international airport.

Vast and varied, Mt Buller’s terrain ranges from gentle groomed beginner runs to gladed tree slopes and steep and deep chutes. With the most extensive snow making system in the Southern Hemisphere, more accommodation options than any other Victorian resort and a variety of bars and restaurants, Mt Buller truly in a winter wonderland.

Mt Buller offers a snow guarantee, the promise that there will be snow for Queen's Birthday opening weekend. The mountain has invested in a new 'Snowfactory' that will continuously produce snow 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at temperatures well above freezing. All this means that there is no more wondering if it's safe to book a ski holiday in June!
