Snow biking in... FALLS CREEK
Nestled amongst the gums of the Great Dividing Range, Falls Creek (fallscreek.com.au) abounds in 450 hectares of skiable terrain – and it’s also the first place in Australia to offer snow biking. Also known as ‘skibobbing’, snow biking involves riding a bike that’s attached to skis instead of wheels and allows you to explore the slopes at seriously high speeds. For the ultimate experience, book a one-hour tour with an instructor and weave your way down the 2km stretch of Wombats Ramble. Get there: A day’s drive from Melbourne or Sydney, Falls Creek can also be accessed from Albury Airport, where you can get a transfer with FallsBus (fallsbus.com.au). Base yourself: The Alpha Ski Lodge ( alphaskilodge.com.au) offers affordable ski-in, ski-out accommodation, while QT Falls Creek (qthotelsand resorts.com) makes for a luxe escape.
