Slogan: 'Be On Top Of Th e World'
Bio: A three hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is close enough for a day’s escape yet far enough away for a holiday. Mt Buller has everything people need for the perfect winter experience.

Mt Buller's extensive lift system gives participants access to over 300 hectares of skiable terrain, with something to appeal to all levels of ability. Mt Buller's runs range from the wide beginner’s slopes of Bourke St and Burnt Hut Spur, to the challenge of our black runs like Chamois and the back of Summit. Mt Buller has three terrain parks designed for all skill levels, a terrain garden and rider cross course with a dedicated snow grooming team to maintain their condition.

Mt Buller's village toboggan park has its own snowmaking machine to keep the kids happy all winter long. Mt Buller has a second toboggan park located at Horse Hill, where participants can then catch the Northside lift up for a sightseer ride and take in the view from Spurs Lookout.

The ski season officially commences on the June long weekend and continues until early October - weather permitting. The right clothing and stay warm and dry. Make sure your dress in layers with good waterproof clothing for the outside layer, and don't forget a beanie or helmet as 50 per cent of body heat escapes through the head. Waterproof pants and warm jackets are available for hire or purchase from Mansfield or shops in the Village.
