Winter Activites in Melbourne

By Viator, August 2015

4.5 76 Reviews | Add your review

When the northern hemisphere gears up for a summer of sunbathing and open-air festivals, Australians wrap up warm and move the barbecues indoors as the days get shorter and colder. Of course, winter in Australia doesn’t mean that the sun stops shining, so while the northern states enjoy mild temperatures throughout July and August, there will also be plenty of snow in the highlands of New South Wales and Victoria. 
With some of the city’s top film, food and cultural festivals held between June and September; weekly firework displays held along the Docklands Waterfront; the Melbourne Chill On Ice Bar serving up frozen cocktails; and outdoor ice rinks popping up around the city, there are plenty of winter activities to enjoy in Melbourne. But for many visitors, the ultimate highlight of winter in Australia is getting out to hit the slopes. 
There are five ski resorts in Victoria—Mount Hotham, Falls Creek, Mt Buller, Mt Buffalo and Mt Baw Baw—but Mt Buller is the closest to Melbourne, making it a popular choice for a day trip. Take a ski tour to the mountain from Melbourne and explore the Mt Buller Alpine Village, where skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and tobogganing all reign supreme, or book a day trip with either an introductory ski/snowboard lesson or an unlimited lift pass so you can make the most of the 741 acres of ski slopes.
