Lake Mountain

Get the adrenaline pumping any time of the year on Lake Mountain with premier cross-country skiing, challenging mountain biking and invigorating walking. 

Winter weekends and springtime sojourns
Spend winter weekends at Australia's top cross-country ski resort and plough your way through snowgum woodlands along 30 kilometres of well-marked ski trails. 

Traverse the same trails on foot when spring springs and see them transformed by bright wildflowers that last into summer. Find a scenic lookout on the plateau to stop for a picnic and soak up spectacular panoramic views of the Victorian Alps to the east, across to Melbourne and over to the surrounding foothills of the Great Dividing Range to the west. 

Take the challenge presented by the exciting single-track mountain bike trails popping up around the mountain.

Travel around two hours (120 kilometres) from Melbourne on the Maroondah Highway to reach Lake Mountain via Healesville or Marysville, driving through mountain ash forests and rainforest gullies that give way to snowgums and subalpine plants around Gerraty's car park.
