    ROCKY VALLEY LAKE

    by balhannah Written Dec 14, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After passing through Falls Creek, we came across Rocky Valley Lake, at 1600m this is the highest significant body of water in Australia.

    It's not far from the village so is a popular spot for fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming or just having a picnic on the shore. As you can imagine, the water is cool/cold, refreshing on a hot day, and is safe for children because of its shallow descent.
    We did notice that it was very windy here.
    Free picnic tables and toilet block.

    ENTRY TO FALLS CREEK SKI RESORT

    by balhannah Written Dec 14, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Resort Entry Permits are required for all vehicles at Falls Creek during the declared snow season.

    Lucky for us, we were visiting in Autumn outside the snow season, so when we came to the entry gates on Bogong road, we drove straight past.

    In snow season, all visitors and residents are required to pay a Resort Entry fee to enter Falls Creek Alpine Resort.
    Resort entry is charged PER VEHICLE, not per person, by way of a Resort Entry Permit.
    All vehicles must have a valid Resort Entry Permit for each day they are at Falls Creek - this includes the day of arrival and day of departure.

    If you are visiting Falls Creek for just the day, or staying say at Bogong, then you need a Day Permit. Day Permits allow you to self-park in any of Falls Creek's Day Car Parks and you can stay at the Resort as late as you like.

    If you are staying at Falls Creek overnight you will need a Night Permit.

    PRICES IN 2015

    Both Day and Night Permits cost $48 per day or $45 if bought online. This applies for every day your car is at Falls Creek including day of departure.

    If you arrive after 1pm your first day is ½ price. Arrive after 4pm and your first day is FREE.

    If you plan on coming to Falls Creek for 7 days or more it is worth looking at a Season Permit as the best value option.

    Walk to Wallace's Hut

    by petwouters Written Apr 30, 2011

    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.

    Address: Bogong High Plains Road, just south of Falls Creek

    Directions: To get there, drive out the Bogong High Plains Road from Falls Creek towards Omeo. Follow the road for approximately 7.5 kms from the dam wall and park your car at the signed entrance. From there it is an easy graded 750m walk into the hut.

    Snow Taxi

    by kelyeah Updated Aug 22, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    Snow Mobile Tour

    by kelyeah Updated Aug 22, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: Top of the Eagle chair lift

    Directions: Take the Eagle chair lift to the top and on your left there is a hut where you will meet your guide.

    Snow Tubbing

    by kelyeah Updated Aug 22, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: Village Bowl, Falls Creek

    Directions: The snow tubing run is in the Village Bowl between the Eagle and Summit lifts.
