MT BULLER hosted the big­gest Easter to date with a record num­ber of vis­i­tors in the re­sort over the long weekend in April.

Fam­i­lies en­joyed Mt Buller’s new Sculp­ture Park Walk, the Bike Buller Pump Track, kids’ club and much more.

Added to the fes­tiv­i­ties, vis­i­tors en­joyed spec­tac­u­lar weather with sun­shine all weekend.

Easter Satur­day saw the an­nual Moun­tain High Fun Run where run­ners of all ages and abil­i­ties took part and raised much needed funds for the Mans­field District Hospi­tal.

Craig Ap­pleby and Vic­to­ria Mitchell were the first male and fe­male to com­plete the ‘Buller Breaker’, a gru­elling 9km course that took in the Sum­mit climb.

The not-so se­ri­ous par­tic­i­pants, in­clud­ing kids and mums with prams, en­joyed the leisurely 3km Vil­lage Views course.

Downhill moun­tain bik­ers and sight­seers made the most of the last weekend of chair­lift op­er­a­tions be­fore win­ter and tra­di­tional Easter ser­vices were held in the beau­ti­ful Mt Buller Chapel.

Easter Sun­day was the high­light of the weekend with the Gi­ant Cad­bury Easter Egg Hunt.

With a guest ap­pear­ance from the Easter Bunny and ki­los of choco­late, the Vil­lage Square was buzzing with ex­cite­ment.

THEY’RE OFF: Olympian Vic­to­ria Mitchell leads the run­ners off at the start of the Moun­tain High Fun Run on Mt Buller - all a part of the Easter weekend ac­tiv­i­ties.
