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.
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.
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.

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