Mt Buller Resort Information

Just three hours' drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is close enough for a day’s escape yet far enough away for a holiday. Mt Buller has everything you need for the perfect winter snow experience. With over 300 hectares of skiable terrain, there is something to appeal to all levels of ability. Our runs range from the wide beginner’s slopes of Bourke St and Burnt Hut Spur, to the challenge of our black runs like Chamois.

With 21 lifts, Mt Buller has the largest lift network in Victoria, including thirteen chairlifts (three of which are high speed detachables) three T-bars, two rope tows (counted as one) and four magic carpets. The resort features three Terrain Parks designed for all skill levels, with a dedicated snow grooming team to maintain their condition.

For plenty of snow play fun, Mt Buller has two toboggan parks, complete with their own snowmaking machines to keep the kids happy all winter long.

The Mt Buller Village is situated picturesquely at the heart of the mountain, offering ski in, ski out accommodation and a huge range of bars and restaurants. With a wide range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, there is something to cater for all needs. Over 30 bars and restaurants provide a range of delectable treats, from quick snacks to fine dining anda choice of nightlife options.

Three bus routes are available and take in all corners of the Village:

Ski School loop: The red bus route takes you from the Village Square, up past Breathtaker All Suite Hotel and Pension Grimus, to the ABOM Express Chairlift. This is the bus you need to catch to access Ski & Snowboard School.

Summit Road loop: The blue bus route starts in the Village Square and then travels past Alpine Central, Mt Buller Chalet, ABOM Hotel and then finishes at the Arlberg Hotel - the highest point on the mountain that you can drive to in a vehicle. This is the bus you catch if you need to go to the Medical Centre or Ski Patrol.

Stirling Road loop: The yellow bus route will take you around the residential area of the Village, including accommodation properties like the Duck Inn, Sugarbush, Enzian, Ajax and Ski Lib. It will also take you past the Chamois Chairlift and the site of the World Cup Aerials.
