How to get Here
Getting to Mt Buller is easy. Just 3 hours drive, 248km's north east of Melbourne, Mt Buller is the most accessible major alpine resort in Australia. You can drive, or take one of the many regular or charter buses that come up to the mountain.

 

The scenery on the way is well worth taking your time to see and enjoy. If you're travelling during the winter season (June - October), remember to pick up chains along the way. You pay your resort entry (winter only) at Mirimbah where you will be advised of road conditions. Follow the well maintained sealed road up the hill and enjoy the many spectacular alpine views. In winter you will be met at the car parks by an attendant who will show you where to park. The 4WD over snow vehicles then meet you and take you to where you are staying on the mountain. So easy, no walking, no lugging gear.

If you prefer you can leave the car in the valley. Mansfield Mt Buller Bus Lines provide regular services from Mansfield, Merrijig and Mirimbah, all co-ordinated through to your lodge. This means no chain hire and no mountain driving.
