Falls Creek Things to Do

  • Walk to Wallace's Hut

    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...

  • Snow Taxi

    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...

  • Pete The Snow Dragon

    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.

Falls Creek Warnings and Dangers

  • The Weather

    Watch the weather, it can change instantly... We went up one morning and it was sunny and 'warm'...not long after it turned into a blizzard... I recommend that you take warm clothes in a backpack if you plan to spend the day up on the mountains and it looks like it will be a nice day. ;)

  • Tyre Chains

    If you plan to drive up to Falls Creek in the winter time you will need to carry chains for your tyres...you may not need to use them but it is better to be safe than sorry... :) Also remember to drive to the conditions...it can get very slippery up there in the snowy/wet conditions...

Falls Creek Tourist Traps

  • 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!!! Take your own food - or at least snacks and drinks then you will save a lot of money... :) Eating at restaurants and...

  • Resort Entry

    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)... There is no alternative...you will have to pay the fee if...

Falls Creek What to Pack

  • CandS's Profile Photo
    Falls Creek snow...

    by CandS Updated Sep 6, 2006

    Luggage and bags: Don't take too much if possible because you have to lug your bags from the car park to your accommodation up the mountain...or if you're smart you can hire an 'Oversnow' vehicle...just don't do what we did two years in a row and 'talk' about it rather than actually taking it... ;) Next time I go I will definitely hire the oversnow to take the bags up the mountain!!!!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Definitely take a good waterproof jacket, pants, gloves...a beanie, warm socks, a scarf etc. Also a neck warmer is very handy for when you go on the chair lifts or ski in snowy conditions.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Take whatever you need with you...although you can buy most things in the village, the prices are very high (as with most ski resort villages).

    Miscellaneous: If you want to cook for yourself, take your food etc to avoid paying high prices for food at the village.

Falls Creek Off The Beaten Path

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rocky Valley Bikes and Outdoors is located in Mt Beauty...and a cheaper place to rent ski, boards, etc. They were a great crew to work with...and had great hours. They even have an internet cafe to check the ski conditions before driving up to Falls Creek.

    Plenty for all levels from rank beginners through mediocre intermediates (that's me!) to experts and a great ski school to help move you along again no matter what level of skiier you are (or think you are). You can bring it all or hire it all! Gebie's on the right as you enter with the Gully chairlift right beside it is a good spot. He also has...

  • Skiing...

    Most people visit Falls Creek in the winter to go downhill skiing (like us) but you can also try tobogganing, snow boarding, snow mobile tours or just playing in the snow generally... :) We hired most of our skiing gear from one of the many hire shops in the village.

  • Me?!

    Here's me trying to work out how to use these skiing things on my first day in 2002... ;) I think everyone should try skiing at least once in their lifetime...it can be fun...even for the beginners...and who knows you might get addicted. I was lucky enough to learn fairly quickly and skipped the 'beginners' class to go straight to the...

  • Village Bowl

    The Village Bowl is at the top of the Gully chair lift... You will find shops, restaurants, night skiing, accommodation, lift ticket sales etc at the Village Bowl.

  • "The Playground"

    The Playground is an easy (green) run for the skiing beginners...this is where I spent almost all of my time in 2002. :) It is a very easy run with a steeper section at the top for learners who are getting a bit gamer. :) It is also close to the Cloud 9 restaurant so you can stop for a lot of hot coffees or hot chocolates in between falling over......
