Don't let Melbourne's weather fool you! Once you drive over the divide, you will find the weather improve dramatically. It is commonplace during Spring, Summer and Autumn that the days are warm and dry, and the evenings cool and fresh. In Winter however, the weather can be cold and snowy, just the right conditions to curl up in front of the fire with the one you love. But if you do feel the need to work off the country cooking or keep that bar tab manageable you have plenty of onsite activities to choose from.
All within 45 minutes drive are skiing and snowboarding, fishing, swimming, canoeing, rafting, boating, cycling, hot air ballooning, airplane joyrides, mountain bike, horse & camel rides, wineries, brewery, bushranger haunts, bushwalks and scenic picnic sites.
