Absolute Alpine Snow Travel Tips

  • Add antifreeze to your vehicle's radiator
  • Check all tyres have good tread, including the spare.
  • Ensure your vehicle's battery is in good condition
  • Carrying snow chains is a legal requirement. Have an under-sheet handy for fitting chains.
  • Avoid sudden braking or acceleration on snow or ice.
  • Use a Windscreen scraper to de-ice your car windows
  • For up to date road reports call 13 11 70
  • Where you can, avoid arriving and departing during the busiest times, Friday evenings and Sunday mornings.

Driving to Falls Creek
Travelling by car is the most convenient way to travel to Falls Creek. The road to Falls Creek from Mount Beauty gently winds uphill for 32 kms, so take your time and please drive carefully. The road to Falls Creek is safe and cleared of snow daily, snow chains are rarely fitted.  Remember to be prepared for ALL conditions and as there is no petrol at Falls Creek make sure you fill up before driving up there.

Parking
During Winter there is no parking within the village. Snow settles on the village streets and cars are parked and forgotten leaving the resort for the people.  Falls Creek gate entry includes overnight parking in the Village Car Park. Falls creek oversnow transport is required to reach the Hotel.  Rates include luggage allowance of 2 suitcases, skis or board, boots and poles per person for each way of travel.
