This was our fourth time back at Mt Baw Baw for the snow. I think the thing that stands out most is the friendliness and helpfulness of all the mountain staff. I also like the way the village and runs are so easy to get around, whether on foot or on skis/snowboard, which means that the kids (9 and 13)... More

I had been to Mt Baw Baw many years ago; my wife had not: in fact, she had never experienced snow before. It was a most enjoyable few hours with the beautiful Australian snow gums and taking photographs of snowmen that others had made fun. The one common room we came across to have our packed lunch in was quite... More

this place is fantastic, especially if you like a less commercial friendly experience. I love the other mountains as much as the next person but this one is a really special place that is a must visit!

Wanting to visit snow in July? Then mt. Baw baw would be an interesting find. 4 hours drive from Melbourne, it is a winter wonderland in July. Things to note: 1. Gear up with snow gear 2. Check for snow fall before the scheduled trip, too small of a snow fall will leave you stuck with the tobogans. 3. Bring... More

Went during the week (Tuesday to Thursday) for our first snow trip. Went up from Melbourne via V-line and Mountaintop experience taxi. Was straightforward getting there although the road up is fairly winding. Tried snowboarding for the first time. Had a nice instructor but only got one hour instead of the two hours because there was no one else with... More

We visited Mount Baw Baw on Sunday in July. with 14cm of fresh snow the conditions were perfect for cross-country skiing. We have departed Melbourne early in the morning and after 2.5 hours reached Mt Baw Baw. After paying AUD 48/car for the resort entry, we have hired cross country skis and boots (AUD 50 for both skis and boots... More

We travelled from WA to show our kids some snow for the first time on a not too expensive or full on ski field. In the middle of winter Victoria decided to get warm. However the kids still managed to have a great time tobogganing down a very scantily clad snow slope, making snow men, throwing chunks of ice and... More

With two toboggan slopes this is a very family friendly attraction. Snow chains are required to be carried, but in the twice we've been, once in June and once in July, we didnt have to put them on. Accommodation on the mountain is available. For most lodges you need to bring your own linen so this can be a bit... More
