Falls Creek offers an excellent resort experience. The night-life is brilliant and you could be forgiven for thinking it's the cosiest location in Australia during winter (not to mention skin-ski-out). Wide open and long runs cater to all ability levels although advanced skiiers and borders may run out of entertainment.... More

Fantastic resort. Considering it's in Australia. Always enough snow by August to ensure a great trip. Accommodation is very expensive, but the village has a great atmosphere. Elk do an amazing breakfast. Even if you're staying off the mountain, come early to have breakfast at Elk.... More
