Environmental Management

The Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Alpine Resort Management Board is committed to protecting and enhancing the environmental values of Mt Buller. This is to be achieved through the implementation of the Environmental Policy. The policy is a public statement that details the Board's commitment to sustainable development of Resort operations and the environment.

Environmental Management Plan

To achieve the commitments outlined in the Environmental Policy we have prepared an Environmental Management Plan. The Environmental Management Plan (or EMP) is a strategic document that elaborates further on the policy and guarantees protection of the Resort's natural environment while ensuring the sustainability of Resort activity and development. This document is a comprehensive guide to environmental management of the Resort, including detailed descriptions of flora and fauna, ecosystems, environmental values and useful information about climate, geography and so on. It is a vehicle to help us fulfill our environmental commitments and a blueprint that will guide environmental management. The EMP was reviewed and updated during 2006.

Dogs in Alpine Resorts

State Law prohibits people from bringing dogs into Alpine Resorts, unless a permit has been issued by the relevant Alpine Resort Management Board (ARMB). Dogs and other introduced species and pets (particularly cats) can result in risks to the general public and hygiene, and threaten native wildlife. The penalty for bringing a dog into the Mt Buller Resort without a permit is $2000. No dogs are allowed at Mt Stirling and cats are strictly prohibited at both resorts.
