It's not really a tourist trap but just something to be aware of... When entering the resort you must pay an entry fee...we weren't aware of it and hadn't factored it into our budget. The entry is around $23 for a days stay up to about $125 for a weeks stay (plus $17 each day after that)...
Fun Alternatives: There is no alternative...you will have to pay the fee if you want to go to Falls Creek...
- Skiing and Boarding
- Adventure Travel
- National/State Park
Prices on the slopes
If you're trying to watch the $$ you spend then it's a good idea to take your own food/drinks with you to the snow...the prices at Falls Creek are very high (like all snow resorts).
For example: A glass of Coke can cost up to A$4!!!
Fun Alternatives: Take your own food - or at least snacks and drinks then you will save a lot of money... :) Eating at restaurants and drinking at the pubs will cost a small fortune.
