Falls Creek is one of Australia's most coveted ski resorts with a glitzy town, numerous snow sports and challenging black-diamond runs, such as the “Widowmaker”. There's a famous après ski scene, in addition to a hive of stylish boutiques, wellness spas and art galleries.
Things to do in Falls Creek
In winter, snow sports are the order of the day with 90 runs, 14 lifts and 450 hectares of skiable terrain to carve up. There are pistes for every skill level, from gentle beginner's slopes to advanced trails, such as the Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing.
There are also plenty of non-skiing, family-friendly attractions, from tobogganing and snow tubing to terrain parks and fireworks shows. If you're travelling by car, Great Alpine Road offers knockout views of the Victorian Alps along its scenic roads.
For a glimpse of the town's rich history, head to the Falls Creek Museum. Inside, you'll find a treasure trove of local memorabilia, from vintage skis to High Country cattlemen hats. The museum also offers interactive experiences, including guided walks around the village.
Things don't slow down in the summer, as the warm weather makes it a great time to hit scenic hiking trails like Wallace Hut. Built in 1889, it's the oldest hut in the High Country. Falls Creek is also a top mountain biking destination, so why not rent a set of wheels and take on one of the trails?
Getting around Falls Creek
During ski season, Falls Creek village is closed to vehicles as part of its unique ski-in/ski-out environment. The resort offers an Accommodation Transfer Service (ATS) that ferries guests and their luggage to the village, while the village itself is easy to navigate on foot.
