Overview

The snowy slopes of Lake Mountain, just a two-hour drive from Melbourne, make up a powdery playground. On this full-day tour, go tobogganing and cross-country skiing (at own expense), take a guided nature walk at majestic Steavenson Falls in Marysville, and a stop in the Yarra Valley.  Finish up by sampling chocolates at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery for a sweet end to the day.

Know More about this tour

After early morning pickup at your centrally located Melbourne hotel, board your comfortable minivan for the 2-hour journey to Lake Mountain. During a rest stop en route, you can purchase breakfast, or hold out for biscuits that you can wash down with hot chocolate or coffee later in the morning.

Cross over the scenic Black Spur mountain pass to arrive at Lake Mountain by midmorning. Your guide orients you to the Lake Mountain resort, which includes more than 23 miles (37 km) of cross-country ski trails, several toboggan slopes and snow play areas. At the resorts shop, you can rent or purchase gear such as toboggans, cross-country ski equipment, snowsuits and boots.

Enjoy three hours of free time to frolic in the snow. During your visit, choose from optional activities (own expense) such as ziplining and cross-country ski lessons, or just simply enjoy a good old-fashioned snowball fight. Even if its a light snow day, snow-making machines keep the ground full.

When it's time for lunch, purchase a meal at the resorts cafe. In the early afternoon, depart for Steavenson Waterfalls with your guide. An easy round-trip walk to a viewing platform offers great photo ops of Steavensons five cascades, which drop a total of 400 feet (122 meters).

Once you have admired the waterfalls, your minivan takes you to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, a stylish candy-colored building where expert chocolatiers handcraft more than 150 varieties of chocolate. Stop to sample some of their delicious chocolates as you enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding gardens, sculptures and orchards.

Sweet tooth satisfied, return to Melbourne by early evening; your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
