Mt Buller's wheel chain requirements are decided on a daily basis and are determined by weather forecasts and existing road conditions. Chain requirements may vary between 2WD and 4WD/AWD vehicles, as each of these types of cars react differently to snow and icy road conditions.
A small number cars can not fit chains in accordance with the vehicle’s user manual. Please check your manufacturers guidelines before hiring chains. Alternative transport options to the resort are available.
Trailers cannot be towed behind vehicles when the road conditions require wheel chains to be fitted.
Daily wheel chain requirements are communicated via the local accommodation providers, retails outlets and authorities who are come into contact with people travelling to the Resort. They also appear on large flashing roadside billboards as you enter and leave Mansfield and on the daily snow report.
