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. Click here to view the map.
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.
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.
Overnight / Village Access Visitors
All vehicles staying accessing the Mt Buller Village or staying overnight in the resort MUST carry wheel chains by law.
NOTE - a number of cars are unable to fit chains in accordance with their user manual, plus some tyre sizes may be inappropriate for snow chains (wide and/or low profile tyres are often difficult to fit).
Trailers / caravans cannot be towed behind vehicles when the road conditions require wheel chains to be fitted.
