About Mount Buller

Mt Buller is a scenic 3 hour drive from the heart of Melbourne, being 248km North-East of the city, making Mt Buller the most accessible large snow resort in Australia and the closest large resort to any international airport (Melbourne, Tullamarine). Buller’s a 6 hour jaunt from Canberra, 9 hours from Sydney and some 9.5 hours from Adelaide.

Beginners are well taken care of on the slopes of Bourke St and Burnt Hut Spur, whilst more advanced skiers can explore challenging black runs such as Chamois and the back of Summit. When the snow falls, the southern slopes with their steep and technical skiing beckon, whilst tree runs deep on the northside seriously entertain when the snow settles low enough. Mt Buller also hosts Australia’s only big-mountain freeride competition known as Buller-X, as well as the largest number of beds of any Australian ski resort with over 8000. Nestled 1600m above sea level and dissected by ski runs and snow gums, Mt Buller village is a ski village in the truest sense.
