We know Australia Ski Resorts
Australia is home to diverse landscapes & climates from beaches to tropical rainforest and desert to snowy alpine peaks. While Australia is known internationally for its pristine beaches, the Great Barrier Reef, and generally warm weather, this rugged country also offers a variety of options for skiing and snowboarding each winter. Home to the Great Dividing Range, the Australian Alps and the Snowy Mountains, Australia has some great domestic ski resorts across New South Wales and Victoria within a driving distance from Melbourne, Sydney, or Canberra airports. For Aussies looking to ski in New South Wales, we recommend either Perisher Ski Resort or Thredbo Ski Resort. Perisher Ski Resort is also 6-hours from Sydney and the largest ski resort in Australia with 2965 acres of skiable terrain to explore. Perisher offers great inclusive rates with meals included in the cost of accommodation for an easy, pre-paid ski holiday experience. Thredbo is about 6-hours from Sydney and boasts ski-in, ski-out accommodation, a fun après ski scene and is home to ‘the Thredbo Supertrail’, Australia’s longest ski run. Families visiting Thredbo love the leisure centre for off-snow days with heated pool, waterslide bouldering wall, trampolines and more. If you want to ski in Victoria the three most popular ski resorts are Mount Buller, Falls Creek and Mount Hotham ski resort. Each offers a unique ski experience depending what type of ski holiday you are chasing. The closest to Melbourne, Mount Buller ski resort is an excellent family-friendly winter holiday option. Boasting the largest lift network in Victoria, the ski resort is also the best place in Australia for dog sledding (in our opinion). Often referred to as the most picturesque ski field, Falls Creek ski resort is only 4.5-hours from Melbourne and home to vibrant, pedestrian only ski village. Offering a true ski in, ski out experience Falls Creek is the largest of Victorian ski resorts. Mount Hotham is ideal for the more advanced skier or snowboarder, with its village on top of a mountain, instead of at the base of the mountain, you ski downhill to get to the chairlift. Hotham is best for people seeking a self-contained accommodation experience, on top of the Victorian High Country. Australia’s ski season runs from June-September each year, skiing domestically is a great way to get your snow fix, without the need for a passport or long international flights. Due to the accessible location of Aussie ski resorts, many people drive up just for the weekends which can be busy, so if you can be flexible, take the week off and enjoy less crowds midweek, making weekdays often the best days to ski.
