Falls Creek Hotel & Accommodation

Just as pretty in the warmer months as it is in winter, Falls Creek is the ultimate all-seasons adventure park. Whether you ski, snowboard or neither, its clean alpine air and pretty village charm will win you over mind, body and soul - all year round. Surrounded by undulating mountains and overlooking the magnificent Rocky Valley Lake, Falls Creek offers a wide range of accommodation where you can live the simple life or luxuriate in style with a selection of apartments, lodges and eco-style resorts. Its unique European style ski-in ski-out village is pedestrian-access only during ski season and is among the prettiest in Australia with more than 30 ski-in bars and restaurants making for a serious night out. Victoria's largest alpine resort hosts a superb range of activities, attractions and events throughout the year and an endless list of runs, trails and glades. First timers can enjoy a variety of beginner terrains including the country's longest green run while those looking to push the boundaries will find an additional 200 hectares of awesome skiing and boarding terrain just beyond the village.

Summer and autumn in Falls Creek brings an avalanche of outdoor pursuits including horse riding, fly-fishing, bike riding, walking, boating and even windsurfing - a fresh uncrowded alternative to a beach holiday. Sitting at the base of Falls Creek, Mt Beauty makes for a relaxing day for off-mountain activities, exploring local vineyards and unwinding with a peaceful game of golf. Living up to its name and hidden away in Victoria's high country, its natural beauty will truly take your breath away. Despite its snowbound location, Falls Creek is Australia's most accessible alpine resort by air with multiple services each day to Albury from Sydney and Melbourne. Once on the ground, travellers can take advantage of a range of hire car services or the direct bus and private transfer services also available. But if you prefer driving to the snowfields, particularly during Winter, allow a full day of travel from Sydney, 6 hours from Canberra and just 5 hours from Melbourne. From Brisbane it is quicker to drive to Falls Creek than to the NSW ski fields via Jindabyne (approx. 15 hours). Remember to carry snow chains, an ice scraper and shovel.
