This small group Mt Buller Day Tour from Melbourne offers the opportunity to escape the CBD for a day of fabulous fun in the snow at Mt Buller – one of Victoria’s premier ski resorts. Located in eastern Victoria, Mt Buller is renowned for its downhill ski slopes, but whatever your skill level, you’ll have a ball during your full day on the mountain.

This Mt Buller Day Tour from Melbourne departs at 4.45am from St Paul’s Cathedral (opposite Federation Square) in central Melbourne. The early departure means that you’ll get the jump on the rest of the crowds heading to Mt Buller that day (so no waiting in the long traffic queues!). Enjoy some additional shut-eye during the trip. [More]

On arrival at approximately 9am, the entire day is yours to experience the wonderful views, take in the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the village, hit the ski slopes or try your hand at snowboarding. A free shuttle bus operates from the car park to the village, and smaller shuttle buses transport guests around the village itself, which is packed with shops, cafes and restaurants.

At 4pm you’ll rejoin your fellow participants in the main car park to begin the journey home to Melbourne. This Mt Buller Day Tour from Melbourne arrives back in the CBD at around 8pm.
