Answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, reach out to our team.

Can I book accommodation at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort? select-arrow

No. There is no on-mountain accommodation available at Lake Mountain, as the facility is for day visitors only in the declared winter season. The closest accommodation is located in Marysville, only 25- 30 minutes away. In winter, the resort gate is locked from 5 pm every night, so visitors have to make their way down the hill to Marysville by 4:30pm for lockout at 5pm.

No, pets of any kind are not permitted at the resort as we are a protected Alpine Environment.

Do I have to prebook anything? select-arrow

Winter season only.

Resort Entry tickets are highly encouraged to be pre-purchased prior to your arrival. Tickets are generally sold at the ticket box on the day, however if the resort reaches full capacity, only people will with pre-booked tickets will be allowed to enter and there won’t be any tickets sold at the ticket box. 

Reaching full capacity is more likely to occur on weekends then weekdays. If you want to avoid the crowds, visit mid-week.

By car, we suggest allowing between 2 and 2.5 hours when travelling from Melbourne CBD.
