Visit Lake Mountain, a snow resort in Australia with modern facilities. It is Melbourne’s closest snow resort, with its picturesque chalets overlooking the mountains surrounded by miles of cross country ski tracks and toboggan fields. On this Melbourne snow tour, you can make a snowman, try tobogganing, take a cross country ski lesson or just throw some snowballs! Our bus drives right up to the snow so there’s no need to take any ski lifts or transfer buses.

Snowy day

Before I come to Australia, I didn't know that there was snow in winter in some places so for me it was surprising and I really enjoyed it! I made a snowman, had a walk in the snow... sounds like christmas
We had the chance also to go to a chocolate factory and to see waterfalls on the road 🙂

Superb Lake Mountain tour

We had an absolute ball on our trip from Melbourne Snow Tour to Lake Mountain!!



Our driver was superb, had fantastic local knowledge and gave a mini history session early on, and divulged informative snippets and funny anecdotes along the way.



It was a lovely surprise to have the chocolate factory, waterfall and Marysville stops along the way in the morning, and definitely a better way to organise the tour rather than just the chocolate factory on the way home, when we would have been too tired to appreciate the beautiful sights!



Apologies we couldn't remember the tour guide's name, but he significantly 'value added' to our trip!



Thoroughly recommend this day trip via Wildlife Tours!

Nice view Lake mt & mesmerizing Yarra Valley Chocolaterie

Only 2.5hours from melbourne and it's worthed day tour.
Our guide Darren, he is a nice guy and very helpful.
He took us to Beechworth Bakery in Healesville for breakfast.
Then we went direct to Lake Mountain.
It hasn't snow yet but they have man made snow, it's enough for me to take photos and make a snowman.
The surrounding was very breathtaking, walk by distance in the nearby, you can see the white rustic silver forest.
Then we went to Steavenson waterfall & Yarra Valley Chocolaterie.
It was so beautifull and I want to go back.
The way back Darren was very helpful, he drop us near our destination to have dinner.

Fantastic family day trip to the snow

This trip was the perfect introduction to snow for my kids. Tour was well organised. Our guide, Tim had heaps of local knowledge and also shared local music and some of his favourite music on the tour. It was great to have a bakery stop before hitting the snow. Got some nice pics at Stevenson falls. Chocolate factory tour on the way back to Melbourne was a hit with the whole family. You have to try the hot chocolate!

Just wanted to say thank you for creating moments to remember for me and my family. Simon, our tour guide was professional and informed. The Stevenson Waterfalls and Chocolaterie were also added value and a great experience. Thank you. Will use Wildlife Tours again and would recommend them to anyone.

  • Nature walk at Steavenson Falls

    In the afternoon you set off for a 700-metre walk to the spectacular and awe-inspiring Steavenson Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in Victoria.

    The waterfall was named after John Steavenson, an Assistant Commissioner of Roads and Bridges who visited Marysville in 1862. The waters plummet 84 metres into the Steavenson River Valley. Today, the waterfall is the heart of the 190-hectare Steavenson Falls Scenic Reserve.

    Steavenson Falls has become a popular tourist destination in Marysville since the 1860s. You will love it because of its distinct allure and amazing natural beauty. With 5 cascades and a total of 122 meters of descent, you’ll stand in awe of this natural wonder.

  • Yarra Valley Chocolatiers and Ice-creamery

    On our way back to Melbourne, we drive through the Yarra Valley to visit a top-notch chocolate factory.
