1 Day Lake Mountain Snow, Waterfalls & Chocolate Tour

Australia Trips & Tours: Melbourne

  • Scenic drive through the Yarra Valley, one of the world’s premier wine growing regions.
  • Extraordinary views only 90 minutes from Melbourne
  • Enjoy 3 hours of snow fun for the whole family
  • Time to arrange a ski lesson or venture down one of the toboggan slopes
  • Take a short nature walk to the base of Steavenson Falls
  • Cruise home via the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery

Join us on the scenic drive to this magical winter wonderland. This family friendly mountain resort guarantees a memorable experience of action and adventure. Visit Lake Mountain, Melbourne’s closest snow resort, with its picturesque chalets overlooking the mountains surrounded by miles of cross-country ski tracks and toboggan fields. Make a snowman, try tobogganing, take a cross country ski lesson or just throw some snowballs!

Our bus drives right up to the snow so there’s no need to take any ski lifts or transfer buses. Once on the mountain, you’ll have 3 hours to marvel at the beauty and revel in snow play, jump on the thrilling flying fox or tube runs, shoot down exhilarating toboggan slopes and explore the network of world-class cross-country ski trails. When we’re done with the snow, we’ll visit the stunning Steavenson Waterfall in Marysville, some of the tallest in Victoria, before getting your taste buds tingling with a stop off at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery. We recommend the deliciously smooth Hot Chocolate to finish the day right!
