Please note: given the Covid-19 situation, the lodge is operating a little differently for the 2021 season, in strict accordance with all relevant DELP & DHHS guidelines. All guests need to adhere to social distancing requirements throughout their stay and there is a much greater focus on continuous cleaning and hygiene. BYO pillows too! Please ensure that you are aware of all the special rules, regulations and requirements that apply in 2021 – both at the lodge and across the mountain – before making a booking.

Please note: full payment is required before your booking is confirmed. Once made, bookings may only be cancelled (less a 20% cancellation fee) up to 21 days prior to the booking date. Bookings cancelled within 21 days of booking date are payable in full unless the vacancies are subsequently filled, in which case the 20% cancellation fee still applies.

Hut Managers

Bronwyn and Paul “Snowflake” Richmond – along with their two children, Yolanda and Findlay – have been an indispensable presence at the club for 21 of the past 22 winters, doing an extraordinary job of making sure everything runs smoothly. Paul is also Mt. Buller’s supervising snow-maker, working up to 70 (often brutal) hours a week. Between winters, the family lives in Lorne, on the Great Ocean Road.
