Whilst Australia may be famed as a holiday destination for its sun, sand and sea, there is ample opportunity to enjoy a skiing adventure. New South Wales and Victoria, two of Australia’s south-eastern states, are among those home to a number of exciting resorts.

Falls Creek

A resort with a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, this area is a hit with skiers from Victoria. Some slopes are ideal for the intermediate skier, but the resort also has several wide runs for those who are slightly less advanced.

The peak of Mount McKay watches over Falls Creek and provides a beautiful backdrop. Despite being in Australia, there’s no need to worry about lack of snow – The Summit Chair takes skiers as high as 6000ft.

Mount Buller

With world-class facilities, beautiful scenery and excellent pistes, Mount Buller is a fantastic destination for all. There are two different areas which each cater to different skiing abilities. You’ll find black runs on the southern side for intermediates, whilst on the other side of the mountain there are blue runs for the younger or less advanced skiers.


When choosing which resort to visit on your wintery escape, Thredbo should be very high on your list. This place is not only abundant with natural beauty, but caters to everyone when it comes to winter sports – it’s no surprise that it’s among the most famous winter sports destinations in the country.

Mount Hotham

This is a great option for advanced and expert skiers who are looking for something challenging rather than easy-going. The resort offers the highest altitude in Victoria, reaching upwards of 6000ft. Here you’ll find the famous Mary’s Slide, the country’s fiercest double black diamond run.


The biggest resort in all of Australia, Perisher is often cited as the most popular too. Its appeal lies not only in the potential on the slopes, but the various activities on offer once you’ve finished a day’s skiing. If you fancy a spot of snowboarding, too, you’ll be well catered for here.

Before You Go

Purchasing some ski travel insurance before you head off on your trip to Australia is an absolute must. This will give you protection against the unlikely event of anything going wrong whilst you’re away.

If you have the good sense to organise your ski travel insurance with plenty of time to spare, you can rest easy in the knowledge that, should anything unexpected happen, you’re protected.

Whilst you might not imagine Australia to be one of the world’s finest skiing destinations, New South Wales and Victoria are both home to some excellent resorts. Will it be the beautiful scenery of Mount Buller or the dizzy heights of the Summit Chair at Falls Creek that you decide to visit first?
