Quality and convenience

History

IMG_1055

The Lodge was built in 1965 and has undergone a number of significant upgrades since that time. It now offers modern, comfortable accommodation with ski-in / ski-out access in winter and easy access to walking and bike trails in Summer.

The colorbond-clad lodge is well insulated (walls and under floor), has double glazing, hydronic heating and an air-lock entrance, making it energy efficient and very comfortable in winter.

The Lodge can accommodate up to 30 people with two large en suite rooms (sleeps five), four small en suite rooms (sleeps three) and two bunk rooms (sleeps four).

The lodge is self-catering, and Members and guests bring their own food or shop at the village supermarket. Meals are cooked in the fully equipped kitchen, where fridge and cupboard space is allocated to each room.

A separate bar fridge is available for wine and beer etc. A coffee machine and pods are supplied, as are basics like sugar, salt & pepper etc.

Bed linen is supplied (Winter only), but you’ll need to bring towels (bath mat supplied) and personal toiletries.

In Winter, our lovely live-in guest services officer, Julia, welcomes Members and guests and is always happy to help with on-mountain information and recommendations.

Each room is allocated a duty and upon departure the room and ensuite or bathroom must be cleaned.

Compares more than favourably with other private lodges / clubs. It’s position at the end of street makes it quieter and access to the ski runs makes it easy.
My "home on the snow" having visited Carey on a yearly basis since I was two years of age. It is an excellent and most convenient lodge, and quiet.

Getting here

Situated in North East Victoria, Falls Creek is located 385 km from Melbourne in the heart of the Victorian Ski Fields.

Falls Creek offers on-mountain car parking for both day trips and longer stays. The cost for parking is covered with the purchase of a resort entry permit, required for all vehicles entering the resort.

During the snow season it is a legal requirement that all vehicles entering the resort carry snow chains. This includes AWD and 4WD vehicles and applies from the season opening on June 11 through to the last day of the season on  October 2.

Albury is the closest airport and train station to Falls Creek and therefore acts as a regional hub for many coach services direct to the resort.
