The climate of Mt Buller is typical of high altitude alpine resorts. In winter, covered in snow, it is transformed into a white winter paradise. In summer it is the perfect place to escape the heat down below, view rare alpine wildflowers and take in the endless vista of mountains. Mt Buller's ecotourism pursuits include:
  • Bushwalking 
  • Wildflowers
  • Mountain biking
  • 4WD and motorcycling

A licence is required by people or businesses who conduct organised tours or recreational businesses for profit within the Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Alpine Resorts under the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978.

Before making an application for a Commercial Operator Licence, prospective licence-holders should contact Resort Management and confirm the availability, terms and conditions of licences for the specific activity.

The decision to grant a Commercial Operator Licence, its duration and conditions remains within the discretion of Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management (RMB).
