Detailed Itinerary of Grampian Tours
We take you to a scenic drive through the charming Yarra Valley, Australia’s premier wine producing region, to reach the famous Lake Mountain Alpine Resort. Located 120 kilometers northeast of the city, it only takes around 90 minutes to get to Melbourne’s closest ski resort.
As we wind our way up to the alpines, along the way we stop by the gateway Estate Coldstream on Yarra Valley for seasonal local produce and to hand pick strawberries from the farm. It is also the best time to grab some to go lunch.
Lake Mountain Alpine Resort is Australia’s popular snow resort. Aside from the amazing mountain views, the ski resort is also equipped with modern facilities like bars/cafes, cross country ski trails, tube runs, flying fox, toboggan runs, and a dedicated snowman park. With the highest altitude of 1,480 meters above sea level, Lake Mountain has been a favorite snow tours destination in Victoria. It covers a 2,400-hectare skiable are that include three toboggan slopes and a total of 37 kilometers of ski trails.
Enjoy three full hours of snow at Lake Mountain. This is what Lake Mountain snow tour is all about, anyway! Play in the snow with snow balls or make your first snowman. You can also take some cross country ski lessons or try tobogganing down the slopes. Make the most of your time and take every opportunity to show off your cross country skiing skills. You can also ride the flying fox and conquer your fear of heights and of speed.
Snap some photos of the quaint chalets overlooking the stunning mountain views. Enjoy the scenery of snow covered mountain tops, alpine trees, and rocky cliffs. Take your time to capture the moment along with the impressive mystic mountain landscape.
You can also visit the bar and warm up with a few shots of brandy or a cup of coffee. Take your chance to meet new friends or simply enjoy the company of strangers and other tourists. There’s much to do to make your Lake Mountain snow tour an exciting and memorable experience.
From the slopes of Lake Mountain, we travel to the scenic town of Marysville to see the majestic Steavenson Falls. It is the best add on to our Lake Mountain Snow Tour. We follow the trail to the 84-meter waterfalls located in one of Victoria’s high altitude mountain ranges. Sitting in the heart of the 190-hectare natural reserve, Steavenson Falls have five cascades with a total of 122 meters of descent. The water plummets into the Steavenson River that supplies the water to the valley.
Spend your precious moments closer to mother nature and listen to the soothing music that calms a troubled soul. Feel the healing power of nature as it rejuvenates and refreshes your inner being. Watch the tree branches dance to the tune of the falling water against the rocks, feel the minty mountain breeze caressing your skin, and listen to the chirping and singing of the native birds, crickets, and cicadas.
Simply delight in the natural beauty and scenery of Steavenson Falls, one of Australia’s hidden treasures. Savor the moment of just being close to and be connected with nature. It is always a nature lover’s delight.
