COVID-19 rules are currently in place at Lake Mountain

Due to various worldly events, all visitors must check-in and provide evidence of being fully vaccinated when entering the Lake Mountain Alpine Resort Bistro or Retail space, along with following all other relevant government guidelines.

Driving from Melbourne to Marysville takes you through the beautiful Yarra Valley, home to some of Victoria’s best wineries and most delicious restaurants. Perfect for a quick breakfast on the way up, or a meal on the way home. There are also plenty of tasty options for a meal once you arrive in Marysville, with the added benefit that it is only a short drive up the mountain to reach the resort.
