Update on the opening of Mt Buller & Mt Stirling

We are delighted to advise that Mt Stirling resort has been allowed to reopen with immediate effect. This means that both Mt Buller and Mt Stirling are now open to the public and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to our beautiful part of the world.

The resorts were untouched by fires and are therefore in great condition for people to visit and enjoy the variety of activities. All of the mountain bike, walking and horse-riding trails are now open.

Many of the forest and park sites within the Mansfield area have also been allowed to reopen as outlined here.

Any campers are reminded to never leave their campfires unattended and to ensure they are completely out before leaving.

The Abom and Buller Grocer have re-opened and the Coffee Garage and Mirimbah Store will re-open on their summer schedules from Friday. All Terrain Cycles and the TBJ café at Mt Stirling will re-open this coming weekend.

Blue Dirt will recommence mountain bike shuttle services this weekend and is generously offering anyone who has been displaced from their home due to the fires, or who lives locally (Mt Buller, Mansfield, Bonnie Doon, Jamieson) half-price shuttles this coming weekend. Blue Dirt will also be offering a twilight shuttle in the “gravity zone” on Fridays from 24 January and will provide free Friday twilight rides for anyone with a full day ticket for the following Saturday.
Some trails in our network leave resort area boundary and are still affected by park closures so please check trail reports and respect closure signage.

Other Commercial and Licensed Tour Operators will be progressively re-opening to provide fantastic visitor experiences from this coming weekend. Click through for further information on Mt Buller operators and here for Mt Stirling.

We thank those people who have submitted suggestions of how we can encourage visitors to return to the region quickly, and welcome any further suggestions from our stakeholders. These can be sent to
