We've stayed at Falls Creek over the last two Easter breaks, and have had a great relaxing time with family on both occasions - the reason for going in the first place. The place and its environs are both scenic and beautiful. Our excellent Easter break experiences have been more about being realistic about what Falls Creek has (or hasn't)... More

Thanks for your review. We are pleased that you have chosen to come to Falls Creek once again for our Easter Festival. This year’s festival was our biggest yet and a great success in capping off one of our busiest summer periods on record. Feedback to date has been resounding positive by those in attendance. We appreciate all feedback received,... More

Granted we have come outside of ski season however there is not a lot for people to do if you do not mountain bike. We found a lot of the restaurant staff rude (except the last hoot) and the poor gentleman at the visitor centre was running a one man show (took a long time for assistance).

Thanks for the review, we are sorry to hear you didn't have the greatest time and certainly appreciate the constructive feedback. Easter is one of our busiest times outside of winter and we understand this added a strain on our Visitor Information Centre. This year we received a great deal of positive feedback as one of our biggest Easters yet... More

Thanks for the review, Events like the Mountain Raid Trail Run (and Initiatives like the 7 Peaks Trail Running Series) have really helped to push the sport amongst our spectacular mountain regions and there are trails here that locals have been absolutely itching to show off to the rest of the world. Spare a thought for the Adventure Racers who... More

Love the place and especially Falls Creek Hotel, for a family holiday it can't be beaten, with children catered for and fantastic meals for adults also

Great, wide-open runs and a gorgeous view. In years with enough snow, the ski-in, ski-out accomodations make sure your days start and end right!

Thanks for the great review, Yep, you gotta love Falls Creek in the middle of winter. Last season was one of the best in recent memory for our unique ski-in ski-out village. Nothing like skiing all the way to your front door at the end of another brilliant day! Hope to see you at Falls again in 2015 More

Thanks for the review. We are all having a great time on the new MTB trails. Make sure you come back next Green Season when the next batch of new trails is open to the public - you can even be a bit sneaky and ride some of them now ;) More

Falls ia definitely my favorite destination in Australia to go skiing. Nice wide runs and not too steep in the beginners areas while also offering more challenging terrain for those more experienced. Weekdays the resort is often only lightly attended making lines at lifts very short. Saturdays are another story. Snowmaking is somewhat limited and its not uncommon for sizable... More

Thanks for the review Justin, we are glad to hear you love our slopes as much as we do! Our lift lines (or lack of them!) are one of the things we are quite proud of. Even in the peak of the season you are unlikely to be waiting for more than a few minutes to get on our most... More

Absolutely must see place for anyone visiting victoria. The views alone will blow you away! Drove here in summer, with no snow but did not regret. Was mostly a dead town in Summer, but we loved the views and setting.

Overall, the resort is great: ski-in/ski-out village has a nice feel, scenery is amazing and staff is helpful and friendly. Shame the same can't be said of the YMCA cross-country hire (Nordic Centre at Windy Corner). Long story short, we got overcharged $34 for poles that we never hired because we had our own. Realising the mistake that night while... More
