Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort

It hasn’t got the reputation of some of the other more popular resorts – and it is definitely smaller – but, for travel ease, Mt Baw Baw is the closest downhill ski resort to Melbourne. On a good traffic day, it’s about 2.5 hours from the CBD.

The names for the toboggan slopes – including Frosty Frog Hollow and Frantic Frog Park – say a lot about Mt Baw Baw’s kid-friendly focus and the 30 kilometres of cross country ski trails are good for family adventures.

As well as skiing and snowboarding lessons, your kids might also love the Howling Husky Sled Dog Tours. Although you could cram an action-packed day in and still make it home to fall into your own bed, the accommodation options are good, with everything from apartments, lodges and cabins available.
