Mount Buller Alpine Village (including Mount Stirling)
Australia's largest, and Victoria's most popular, ski resort
Situated within the south-eastern section of Alpine National Park, the village of Mt Buller is Australia's largest, and Victoria's most popular, ski resort. It is located 248 km north-east of Melbourne via the Melba, Goulburn Valley and Maroondah Highways, and 48 km east of Mansfield along a steep, winding and picturesque road lined with mountain ash.
The carpark is situated below the village which is 1600 m above sea-level. You can take a chairlift from here right to the middle of the ski runs or partake of the over-snow shuttle service to the village.
Heath, mosslands and herbfields dominate on the summits with snow gums and alpine ash further down and, in the valleys, manna and peppermint gums. There are wombats, bush rats and a range of birdlife (crimson rosellas, honeyeaters, gang-gang cockatoos and flame robins) on the upper plains.
