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.

Yes, you can! Our on-mountain equipment and clothing hire outlet stocks a large range of sizes in both PVC and padded outerwear. As well as snow boots to keep your feet nice and dry.

The only things you cannot hire are gloves and beanies, due to hygiene regulations.

Don’t stress though, we have a range of kids through to adults gloves and beanies for sale in our retail outlet up on the mountain. With gloves starting around $20, you’ll be set to tackle the wintery conditions.

Funnily enough, there is no Lake at Lake Mountain! The mountain was named after the surveyor George Lake.

Unfortunate for those planning on bringing their boat!
