Mt Buller Is Best Snow Experience In Australia (23-Aug-09)

Mt Buller, Australia, August 23, 2009 - Mt Buller has been named Australia's best snow holiday

Mt Buller has been named Australia’s best snow holiday destination in Travelling in Australia magazine’s search for Australia’s Top 20 travel experiences.

An international panel of Australian travel specialists looked at travel experiences right around the country to come up with a Top 20 listing of ‘must try’ travel experiences we should all have on our to do list.

Travelling in Australia editor Chantal Dunbar announced the winners, “This award is a significant acknowledgement of [the winning destinations’] contribution to, and recognition from, the tourism sector. Securing a place on this list is an impressive accomplishment.”

Mt Buller has long been a popular ski and snow destination for Australians and has some unique qualities that contributed to winning the award as “Best Snow Experience in Australia.”

Mt Buller offers visitors a warm welcome in a lively alpine village nestled up in the snowline, the most on-mountain beds in Australia, the state’s largest ski lift network and over 300ha of terrain. It is also Australia’s most accessible major alpine resort an easy three hour drive outside Melbourne through picturesque North East Victoria.

Laurie Blampied, General Manager of Buller Ski Lifts, was pleased with the news of Mt Buller’s recognition as one of the Top 20 travel experiences in Australia.

“Mt Buller is a wonderful place to be in winter and a truly unique Australian experience. There is nothing quite like skiing through the snow gums and looking out across the high country at some of the best views in the country.

“We also pride ourselves on delivering Australia’s greatest mountain experience which is why so many people come back again and again. It is common to meet people here who come from generations of loyal Mt Buller skiers.”
