Visit Lake Mountain, a snow resort in Australia with modern facilities. It is Melbourne’s closest snow resort, with its picturesque chalets overlooking the mountains surrounded by miles of cross country ski tracks and toboggan fields. On this Melbourne snow tour, you can make a snowman, try tobogganing, take a cross country ski lesson or just throw some snowballs! Our bus drives right up to the snow so there’s no need to take any ski lifts or transfer buses. Finish up by sampling chocolates at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery for a sweet end to the day.
About This Deal
After early morning pickup at your centrally located Melbourne hotel, board your comfortable minivan for the 90min journey to Lake Mountain.
Cross over the scenic Black Spur mountain pass to arrive at Lake Mountain by midmorning. Your guide orients you to the Lake Mountain resort, which includes more than 23 miles (37 km) of cross-country ski trails, several toboggan slopes and snow play areas. At the resort’s shop, you can rent or purchase gear such as toboggans, cross-country ski equipment, snowsuits and boots.
Enjoy 3 hours of free time to frolic in the snow. During your visit, choose from optional activities (own expense) such as visiting the toboggan park, ziplining and cross-country ski lessons, or just simply enjoy a good old-fashioned snowball fight. Even if it’s a light snow day, snow-making machines keep the ground full.
When it's time for lunch, purchase a meal at the resort’s cafe. In the early afternoon, depart for Steavenson Waterfalls with your guide. An easy round-trip walk to a viewing platform offers great photo ops of Steavenson’s five cascades, which drop a total of 400 feet (122 meters).
Once you have admired the waterfalls, your minivan takes you to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, a stylish candy-colored building where expert chocolatiers handcraft more than 150 varieties of chocolate. Stop to sample some of their delicious chocolates as you enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding gardens, sculptures and orchards.
Sweet tooth satisfied, return to Melbourne by early evening; your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
