how do i get to mt buller?

Mt Buller is just 248kms north-east of Melbourne via Mansfield.  There are a few different routes you can take from Melbourne:

  • Plenty Rd via Whittlesea and Yea
  • Via the Hume Hwy to Tallarook and Yea
  • Via the Maroondah Hwy to Yarra Glen and Yea

To get here via the most direct route using Google Maps and GPS, it is best to set your destination to Yea, then once you are in Yea set it for Mansfield, then Mt Buller from Mansfield.

Please be aware that wildlife is often seen on the Mt Buller Road, mostly around the Merrijig, Sawmill Settlement and Mirimbah areas. Kangaroos, wallabies, deer, wombats and other animals can be on and around the road. Drive with care, especially during dusk, nighttime and early morning.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

Mansfield

Mansfield is the closest town to Mt Buller, and is ideal for a break. You can collect wheel chains and ski and snowboard equipment before you drive up the mountain. From Mansfield, you’ll reach the Mt Buller resort entry in about 20 minutes, and then it’s another 20 minutes’ drive until you reach the car parking area.

Fuel 

There is no fuel available at Mt Buller so it is a good idea to fill up in Mansfield before driving the last leg to the resort. If driving a diesel vehicle you should use alpine mix diesel which is available from the pump at most service stations in Mansfield.

Wheel Chains

Day Visitors

Depending on snow and road conditions day visitors may be required to carry chains. You will need to check the daily declaration on the Mt Buller Live App or the website before you arrive. Click here to check the declaration. 

Overnight / Village Access Visitors

All vehicles staying accessing the Mt Buller Village or staying overnight in the resort MUST carry wheel chains by law.

Overnight Visitors

When you are leaving Mt Buller after an overnight stay you need to return the Mt Buller car parks via the oversnow taxis. 

Driving with snow on your vehicle is dangerous - clear it off! Make sure you clear ALL snow from your vehicle - you can be hit with a hefty fine and loss of demerit points for driving with snow on the roof of your vehicle. It is a danger and a hazard for several reasons.

 Park & Ride

   If you would prefer not to drive in the snow, you can arrange to park your car and take a coach.

Parking locations

  • Behind the Mansfield-Mt Buller Buslines depot in Mansfield, or
  • The Mirimbah car park (at the base of the mountain)

From either location you can then take a coach to Mt Buller. Please note, if you park at Mirimbah, the pick-up point is located at the Mirimbah Store. For prices and schedules, visit the Mansfield-Mt Buller Buslines website.

Overnight visitors must also purchase a return taxi fare which provides transport to and from your accommodation from the Mt Buller bus depot.
