Faster passage to snowfields
IT’S now even faster to get to the Victorian Snowfields of Falls Creek and Hotham Alpine Resorts with the Holbrook bypass in NSW finally open to the public.
In the old days it may have been a 10 hour trip in the family EH station wagon, but over the years the time to get from Sydney to Melbourne has been shaved off by three hours with the Holbrook bypass as the final link in the Hume Freeway between Melbourne and Sydney.
It is now dual carriageway for its entire length of 880km with 49 towns bypassed, 22 of these in NSW.
Sydneysiders and beyond can now enjoy an easy and enjoyable drive south to two of Australia’s best alpine resorts, Falls Creek and Hotham.
These sister resorts offer skiing and riding on the one ‘snow pass’ at both resorts, with a heli link available for guests who want to day trip between the mountains and explore more terrain – all 775 hectares on two mountains.
The resorts are open year round and provide a range of activities from skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing, day spas and dogsledding in winter, through to hiking, cycling, fishing and events in summer.
