Winter months are coming once again, and for a lot of Australians, the act of reserving their yearly (or perhaps first-ever) cold-weather vacations ought to be done nowadays. There is no reason to stress, though; people looking to spend snowy adventures together with their best mates have time to scramble around for best winter lodging. It’s just a matter of realizing exactly where to look.
If you’re anywhere near Melbourne, or if perhaps you’d like to go on a dedicated vacation to check out this part of Australia, winter holidays just won’t be complete without spending time at Mount Buller. A three-hour drive from Melbourne will bring you directly to the wintertime experience that you’ve been hankering for. And when you have had adequate snow for a day, you can relish the delicious warmth in one of the enchanting country bungalows of a farmstay at Wappan Station, one of Victoria’s largest sheep stations ten or twenty yards away and also the best off-mountain accommodation in the area.
Mount Buller has enough winter activities to satisfy anyone who’s been basking in the sun for most of the season and would really like an enjoyable, somewhat cooler change in surroundings. There’s classic cross-country skiing for experts and newbies alike, and those looking for a welcome challenge can attempt their hand (as well as feet and snowboard) at night skiing. For a lower-energy yet equally beautiful activity, guests can take a scenic chairlift ride and also explore the mountain on its Horse Hill as well as Blue Bullet chairlifts. And then for something new, there’s Mount Buller’s freeride facilities: Kofler’s Park, Skyline Park, and also Summit Park.
After a day full of all kinds of snowy endeavours, relaxation can be found at Wappan Station, a distinctive farmstay accommodation suitable for single vacationers, couples, families and enormous groups looking to experience winter in a gloriously perfect country setting. Visitors could take their pick from the Shearers Quarters, Wappan Cottage, and also the Royal Town Cottage to find the best facilities and adequate bed space to match their travel groups. Throughout the day, guests also can discover the great winter sights around Lake Eildon or perhaps go out to Mansfield, Victoria’s many vineyards, farmers’ markets, and other colourful places to get a touch of nearby colour.
Winter’s a good time to have a country winter experience – snow bathes the great outdoors in a blanket of white and gives a much softer look on the land and its curves. Experiencing winter adventures on Mount Buller and snuggling up to a cozy off-mountain accommodation at Wappan Station spell extraordinary vacations for snow-seeking guests.
