Lake Mountain is located only 2 hours from Melbourne, meaning there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy some fun in the snow. The toboggan run here is definitely one of the favourite activities to enjoy, but you’ll can also try skiing or snowboarding, build a snowman or have a snowball competition! We’ll also make stops along the way to view a beautiful waterfall and witness chocolate being made at the Chocolaterie.
The drive may only take 2 hours, but it passes through some spectacular scenery along the way. We’ll drive through the gorgeous Black Spur region, where you’ll see large mountain ash trees and tree ferns lining the road. This is one of Victoria’s most scenic touring routes, so be sure to have your cameras handy.
Enjoy some free time at Lake Mountain Snow Resort. For the adventurous ones in the group, why not have a go at skiing by joining a ski lesson (own expense)? Or there is the toboggan run, where you can have fun sliding down the snow slopes (own expense). Get your friends together to build a snowman or see who can throw the furthest snowball!
On the way home, we’ll drive through one of Victoria’s premier wine regions, the Yarra Valley, known for its fine wines and great food. We stop by the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie along the way, where you can warm yourselves up with a hot chocolate (own expense) or some chocolate samples while you watch how chocolate is made.
We depart Melbourne early and make our way towards Lake Mountain Snow Resort, with a stop at Beechworth Bakery along the way for those who would like to purchase a coffee or morning tea (own expense).
Then be sure to have your cameras handy as we drive through the beautiful and scenic Black Spur region, located in the Yarra Ranges. This part of the journey will have you passing through some of Victoria’s most stunning fern forests.
Upon arrival at Lake Mountain Snow Resort, you’ll have 3 hours to enjoy the winter playground. You could join a ski lesson to test your skills on the ski slopes, or have a go at the popular toboggans (both at own expense).
