An easy three hour drive from Melbourne, Mt Buller is the most accessible major snow resort in Australia and a premier ski destination for snow enthusiasts from across the nation and around the world. Take in spectacular views as you whiz down the slopes on skis, snowboard or toboggan on an exhilarating day trip or extended holiday.
