The Mt Buller resort is along the Australian Alps in the Great Dividing Range in Victoria. The Buller Ski resort has fantastic facilities for those wanting to stay the season, to stay a week, or those visitors that are coming up for the day. And the slopes and snow conditions at the Buller Resort can accommodate beginner skiers thru to advanced experts. There are also a range of toboggan parks, terrain parks and trails and a ridercross course.
Buller has Mansfield as a base town about 30 to 45 minutes away. You can reach Buller from Melbourne along the Melba Hwy thru Yarra Glen and Yea and Bonnie Doon and then onto Mansfield. We use Mansfield as base camp for some supplies but there is a also a general store at Mt Buller. Add to that if you are staying on the mountain you can have supplies freighted up quite economically.
Mt Buller Resort Entry
There is a car and bus entry fee for the National Park in Winter time to assist costs of road clearing etc. Sometimes these car day passes are cheaper and easier to obtain online prior to coming to Buller. It may save you some dollars and also time at the gate if there is a line for entry.
If you are in a car you may also need to carry wheel chains. If you are going to coming to the snow fields quite a lot it may be cheaper to buy some and keep in your boot.

Mt Buller Experience
Here is some feedback we've received about Mt Buller from people that use this snow resort.
5 stars - "Mt Buller" by Jo, Submitted on May 4, 2019 We love Mt Buller. Have so many great memories there with the family. We have our own snow gear for the family but if we take friends we hire skis on the mountain.
Mt Buller Resort Accommodation
There are quite a few accommodation options on the mountain at Mt Buller and also off the mountain near the base towns like Merrijig and Sawmill Settlement. Mt Buller has hotel style accommodation with options of chalets to lodges. Families and individuals are all catered for.
If you are intending to stay on Mt Buller for the season we suggest getting organised early in the year as season accommodation can go quite quickly. There is a primary school on the mountain and our kids went there which was such an awsome experience for them. The catch phrase of Mt Buller is that you are on top of the world at Mt Buller and there is no doubt it is a great experience.

The main area the Mt Buller is called Cow Camp. Many day visitors stop in here. But across the resort there are quite a number of retail shops in the Mt Buller Village. There are clothes shops that also include tourist items. And then there is also a grocery story that stocks nearly everything incluing a bottleshop. There is also hairdressers and a day spa on Mt Buller
There are many take away or sit down cafe style food outlets on Mt Buller in the Village. In terms of restaurants there also are many with an array of different food themes and styles.
Just off the mountain down at Sawmill Settlement is The Mill Inn. We recently dined at this restaurant. It's a gorgeous setting and beautiful interior. We didn't have a booking but they got us in for a sitting. Having the pasta were the best dishes. The chef special of ribs was okay. Stick to the fresh home made pasta!
