Mt Buller will see a lot of investment this year with new retail and accommodation facilities being built and the Blue Bullet Chair Lift being replaced. We will be working hard to support these important investment projects, whilst also maintaining our unique alpine environment for summer fun including bushwalking, running and mountain biking.


Construction activity will mean some temporary road lane closures across the summer. If you want to receive advanced notifications of these please sign up for our Stakeholder Notifications by clicking here. There may also be some increases in construction related traffic and noise, although we will be working hard to minimise impacts during events and on weekends and there will be no construction activity between Christmas and New Year and the Easter long weekend.


2018/19 Construction Projects
  • Bella Vista – Summit Road – This new apartment building with underground carparking is expected to be ready for occupation in time for the 2019 snow season. There will be a crane on-site moving pre-caste elements into place until the six-story structure is in place. The crane will then be moved off the mountain and internal fit-out works will commence. Temporary road lane closures along Summit Road are expected, while the crane is operational. Traffic management will be in place.
  • Maganni Apartments – Chamois Road – This new 4 storey apartment building with underground carparking is expected to be ready  for occupation in time for the 2019 snow season. The construction method involving the use of prefabricated modules means that impacts will be minimal with a crane only needed for 1 to 2 weeks. Traffic management will be in place guiding visitors around Chamois Road when it is closed during crane movements.
  • Kooroora Hotel and Backpackers – Village Square – Construction of this new entertainment, retail, food and beverage, hotel and apartment complex will commence this year and is expected to finish in time for the 2020 snow season. Works this year will involve demolition of existing buildings and the construction of new underground carparking, the new Kooroora and ground floor retail space in time for the 2019 ski season. Part of the Village and bus interchange area will be cordoned off and used for site shedding, deliveries and materials storage. Demolition works will be noisy, although we expect this phase to be complete by early December with the ground and first floor structure built by around March 2019 followed by internal fit-out works
  • Whitehorse Village – Standard Lane – Works on the Whitehorse Village apartment development will continue this year. Village impacts are expected to be minimal given the location of the development. All materials will be stored on site.
  • Lights on Chamois Ski Run – A planning application to install lights on the Chamois Ski Run is currently under consideration by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (the Planning Authority). If the planning permit is approved, new lighting may be installed this year to allow twilight and evening mogul and aerial ski training and competitions supporting Mt Buller’s position as an official Olympic Training Centre and Victoria’s home for the development of future Olympic and World Champions in aerial and mogul skiing.
  • Blue Bullet Chair Lift Replacement – Our beloved Blue Bullet will be replaced this year with a new larger 6-seater chairlift. Construction will start in early October 2018 with demolition and ground works. Installation of the new lift will begin in April 2019. Pedestrian and vehicle access under the lift area will be restricted and construction traffic along The Avenue is expected.    


Mirimbah Park Improvement Works

Road and drainage improvement works will be undertaken at Mirimbah Park, Mt Buller, from 15 February 2019 until late April 2019. These works include repair of the existing gravel access road and improvements to the stormwater drainage to address poorly-drained areas currently affecting park amenity during wet weather.

Works will be progressed in stages over the coming months to minimise disruption to park users and to ensure that the park is available for use over Easter and for planned events such as ‘Picnic in the Park’. While works are in progress access to sections of the park will be controlled through use of temporary fencing/bollards to maintain public safety. Park users are requested to keep clear of these work areas. 


The Resort Management Board will also be undertaking a lot of works this year to improve village roads, drains and carparks. Stairways connecting carparks will also be installed this year making it easier and safer for visitors to travel from carparks to bus stations and on to the Village. We will also be undertaking works to increase carparking capacity and build a new all-weather helipad for air ambulance services.

We look forward to seeing you during summer – come and enjoy summer fun activities and watch some historic moments as the Kooroora comes down and the new Blue Bullet goes up.

Please check the resort updates section of the website for updates such as road closures throughout Summer.
