Fly in and drive:

If you want to fly in – we suggest Melbourne or Albury (Qantas/Rex). The locals reckon the drive from Albury is a bit smoother and we are currently liaising with providers in regards to potential shuttle/transport services from those airports.

Drive from Melbourne:

There are a few different routes you can take from Melbourne:

  • Plenty Rd via Whittlesea and Yea
  • Via the Hume Hwy to Tallarook and Yea
  • Via the Maroondah Hwy to Yarra Glen and Yea
  • Travelling from the north, follow the Hume Hwy south and take the Mansfield exit onto the Midland Hwy (B300). To get here via the most direct route using Google Maps and GPS, it is best to set your destination to Yea, then once you are in Yea set it for Mansfield, then Mt Buller from Mansfield

No matter which route you take from Melbourne to Mt Buller you will eventually come to Mansfield – the closest major town to the Resort. Pass through Mansfield and follow the signs to Mt Buller.
