Wallace's Hut is one of the many alpine huts still standing on the high plains. This one in particular is very easily accessible (in autumn anyway, not sure about in wintertime).
Built over six weeks in 1889 by the Wallace brothers Arthur, William and Stewart, Wallaces Hut is the oldest standing mountain hut in the Bogong High Plains Alpine National Park.
It's worth visiting, a piece of Aussie history not often seen. Just beware, we were here in autumn and it was rather cold (approx. 4-7 degrees C)
There are picnic tables near the hut and it does make for a beautiful backdrop, but do rug up. Also, no supplies whatsoever near there, so picnic is really the only way if you want something to eat.
There are snow taxis that you can book to take you to different parts of the village. We booked one to take all eleven of us on a tour of the village and back to where we were staying. I was a great way to check the place out and it made me realize just how big Falls Creek is! It costs $7 per person (in 2008).
It's a pretty rough ride and a bit noisy but better than walking all the way to the other end of the village.
A free show for kids that is held in the Village Bowl. It's a great show for kids where Pete the Dragon arrives on a custom snow mobile, does some songs and dances then gives all the kids high fives and free show bags.
This was fantastic!! I went as a passenger which was cheaper but the tour guide let me have a drive too! I recommend driving if you can afford it as it's so much fun but you will get tired as the steering is pretty heavy.
The day I went it was snowing in the Village Bowl but when I got to the top of the Eagle chair lift the visibility was very low and it was freezing!! If you can go on a clear day with no snow it would be much better but even with the snow it was a great tour.
The guide stops a few times for you take pictures and explains where you are and about the area.
This is so much fun, I did it 2 or 3 times while I was in Falls Creek.
The snow tubing run is in the Village Bowl between the Eagle and Summit lifts. It costs $17 for half an hour (in 2008), which is plenty of time! You buy the tickets from the Activity Desk with is right net to the tubing run.
The best time to go is when it isn't snowing as the run gets icy and you go so much faster! You also don't have to walk back to the top as there is a travelator. You get pretty hot while doing it especially if the sun is out.
