Getting Here | Mt Buller Ski Lodge
Driving to SkiLib Accommodation Mt Buller
Driving to Mt Buller is easy. The scenery on the way is well worth taking your time to see and enjoy. If your 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 carparks by an attendant who will show you where to park. The 4WD oversnow vehicles then meet you and take you to where you are staying on the mountain. So easy – no walking, no lugging gear.
The car park is about 45 minutes drive from Mansfield. A parking control operates at Mirimbah, at the foot of the mountain, during the ski season and a gate entry fee, levied by the State Government Alpine National Parks Commission, applies. First time visitors will be given directions at the gate if requested. Further information on gate entry and parking is available on 03 5777 5527.
If you prefer you can leave the car in the valley. Coaches and limousines are available through Mansfield Mt Buller Bus Lines, all co-ordinated through to SkiLib Lodge. This means no chain hire and no mountain driving. Lock-up car parking is available at the pick-up points. Gate entry fees are usually included in the fare. Coach services are available from Mansfield, Merrijig or Mirimbah.
