Welcome to Falls Creek! This Alpine Resort turns into an outdoor adventure mecca in the Summer, allowing you to explore the wonders of the Victorian High Plains. Home to world-class mountain bike and hiking trails, Falls Creek features a stunning natural environment and there is so much to see and do.
Whether it’s your first time to Falls, or you’re a seasoned visitor, you will find plenty to escape the day-to-day and enjoy Falls Freedom this summer!
The High Country’s stunning mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes are perfect places for both adventure and relaxation.
Falls Creek Mountain Bike Park is 40km of world class gravity trails, high in the rooftop of Victorian Alpine National Park. Designed and built by World Trail, Falls Creek’s Park is a showcase of gravity and flow in beautiful alpine terrain.
These trails have been built with the rider in mind. Accessible to the newest of bikers and enticing to the most experienced, all trails start in finish in the resort. Easy cruiser, fun flowing descent or all-mountain bash, it’s all at the doorstep of a ride-in, ride-out village.
This is truly mountain biking for all riders, with shuttles every weekend, 10km of unbroken gravity, and the dead-set legend of Australian mountain biking – Flowtown! We’re talking 6km of free-flowing trail with berms, jumps and rollers and a final 3km that rides more like pump track than gravity trail.
This is laugh-out-loud kind of fun that doesn’t go out of style.
Location & how to get there
Located in North-East Victoria, Falls Creek is less that 2 hours’ drive from Albury-Wodonga, 4.5 hours from Melbourne, or an easy day’s drive from Sydney. There are a range of transport options available, including self-driving, coach buses, public transport, private transfers, and air travel.
Car – During summer there is no charge for vehicle entry to the resort, and it is accessible by road from both Mt Beauty (to the north) and Omeo (to the south). The drive in either direction is very scenic and a beautiful way to tour the High Country on a fully sealed road. We recommend guests check the Vic Roads website to ensure the Falls Creek to Omeo road is open before travelling. In certain weather conditions the road may be closed for the safety of the drivers.
Train – Public rail transport can be a convenient and cost-effective way of traveling most of the way to the resort. Various options are available to get visitors most of the way to Falls Creek via the Victorian and New South Wales regional rail services.
From Albury or Wangaratta you can connect with a scheduled Coach Service, book a Private Transfer or hire a rental car.
Air – From most Australian capitals, daily services fly into Albury via REX and QantasLink. The remaining travel time to Falls Creek is less than 2 hours by road on a connecting Coach Service, in a hire car, or via Private Transfer.
For the ultimate Air Travel experience book a helicopter transfer out of Albury directly to Falls Creek. The trip takes just 35 minutes by air and adds an incredible experience to your snow holiday.
As always, please make sure to stay up to date with travel requirements and restrictions. At the time of writing, there are no restrictions in place for anyone travelling to or from Victoria. Check up on all the latest information on the website:
