It may feel like summer is barely over, but the first snow has already fallen on the Victorian ski fields.

If you’re considering a winter snow holiday, now is the time to book to ensure you don’t miss out. And there’s no better option than Falls Creek Alpine Resort. Here’s why:

Cold comfort

Falls Creek has many south-facing slopes. Why does that matter?

It means more reliable, longer-lasting snow compared to other Victorian resorts because the slopes don’t get hit by direct afternoon sun.

It’s also Victoria’s largest alpine resort, featuring more than 90 trails over 450 hectares.

Falls Creek is Victoria’s only completely ski in, ski out resort.

Leave the car in the car park or take the bus, skip the dreaded daily snowfield transfers, lugging your gear and enjoy the peace and convenience that comes with skiing directly from the front door of your accommodation.


Falls is known as the family resort for good reason.

Its winter program is packed with events, including Twilight Tuesdays, a weekly party in the Village Bowl featuring Pete the Snow Dragon, marshmallow toasting and games, Fireworks Fiesta, every Thursday at 7pm and kids group lessons for ages three to 14.

Beginner’s luck

If you’ve always wanted to learn to ski — or you want to introduce your kids to the sport — Falls Creek is the perfect place to do it.

It is home to the Australia’s longest Green run, the 2.2km Wombat’s Ramble.

And with 60 per cent of the mountain suitable for intermediate levels, there’s plenty of spots to practise “French fries” and “pizzas”.

Feed the soul

Fitting for its location in one of Victoria’s great food and wine destinations, Falls Creek has the largest collection of independent dining venues of any Victorian resort.

Its 27 boutique and independent bars and eateries are dotted throughout the snowy streets.

From breakfast and lunch with a view at 1550 @ St Falls and the German-inspired menu of JB’s to the loaded desserts of Snonuts to the barbecue flavours at Frying Pan Inn, there’s always something to discover.

And if you want to cook at your lodge, there’s a Foodworks supermarket with bottle shop.

Ski break

If you’ve had enough skiing and snowboarding, or if you’re a non-skier, there’s plenty of other diversions on offer.

Snowshoeing, snowmobile tours, scenic helicopter flights, tobogganing, a day at the Astra Day Spa or a visit to the Falls Creek Museum are all on offer.

Or simply admire the views with a hot drink, a book and an open fire. And about those views? They’re simply spectacular, taking in Australia’s largest alpine lake, Rocky Valley Lake, and Victoria’s highest peaks, Mt Bogong, Mt Feathertop and Mt McKay.

Budget options

From bunk-style rooms to budget apartments to luxury lodges, there’s a wide range of accommodation available at Falls Creek.

Save money and avoid the crowds by booking a mid-week stay.
