Falls Creek ski resort is one of the top holiday destinations Victoria has to offer.

Nestled in the Victorian Alps in northeastern Victoria, within the Alpine National Park, Falls Creek is 350 km by road from Melbourne.

The accommodation Falls Creek has to offer is as varied as the activities visitors can participate in.
Accommodation Falls Creek
There are Falls Creek accommodation options for families, couples, groups of friends, and even solo travellers. Pet friendly accommodation is also available. For those looking for the cheap accommodation Falls Creek offers, it’s a bit harder to find, but visitors can easily find affordable lodging in nearby Mt Beauty (30 km away), and use Falls Creek coaches for daily transport up the mountain. The Falls Creek snow season is the prime time to visit, and it will last from June 6 to October 4 in 2020, an average of 114 days. With so much to see and do in such a small area, it’s no wonder many travellers return year after year, and consider this the best place to visit in Victoria.
