Getting there & around
Falls Creek is 375km and a 4½-hour drive from Melbourne. During the winter, Pyle’s Coaches (5754 4024; www.pyles.com.au) operates daily buses between Falls Creek and Melbourne (one way/return $78/125) and also runs services to and from Albury ($44/70) and Mt Beauty ($25/42).
The Over-Snow Taxi service (return $30) operates between the car parks and the lodges from 8am to midnight (until 2am on Friday night). Car parking for day visitors is at the base of the village, next to the ski lifts.
If you want to ski Mt Hotham for the day, jump on the Helicopter Lift Link for $105 return if you have a valid lift ticket.
