High (God’s) Country is worth a visit even without the snow…
So we have to confess. The above tagline is a bit of a lie. Because you know what, you can legit get a bit of snow up at Mt Buller this New Years amongst the scorching sun and a whole lot more.
Mt Buller have put together an absolutely cracking list of sh*t to do over that strange period between Chrissy and New Years and into the New Year. And tell you what, it’s well worth ditching the crowds down at Portsea or Lorne for this. We have nothing against the coast (we f*cking love it) but this is about doing different.
Here’s a snippet of what they’ve got in store:
Snow in Summer: The clever crew here on the mountain stashed a huge pile of SNOW after winter because well why not? Head to the bottom of Bourke Street Ski Run for a range of Kids (and adults being kids again) Activities, a live DJ & Snow Play activities daily from December 27th – December 31st.
NYE Moosehead Revival Party: Limited tix available for this juicy Blues, Soul & RnB NYE send off. $130 a pop gets you food from 8-10pm and Froffies, Vino and Soft Drink from 8-11pm with a cash bar thereafter. Mansfield transport options are a nice little bonus.
NYE at the Birdcage:If you want to send 2021 off in style, then get set for some delish cocktails, mouth watering food and live entertainment at the Birdcage with acoustic tunes by Lucas Miller and DJ Jayden G from 4pm-1am.
Sunsets, Stars & Soul: Kickstart 2022 (January 1 from 5pm-9pm) on a golden note and BYO your own picnic rug, food and bevs and watch Mother Nature do her thing as DJ Peter Piro (who has played sets at Burning Man, Strawberry Fields and a stack of events internationally) provides you with a matching soundscape to the epic scenery.
Follow that up on January 2 by taking your stargazing to another level with guidance from galactically-savvy volunteers from the Astronomical Society of Victoria. Kick back from 9pm – 10:30pm under the night sky with a coupla hot chocolates or gluhweins on Bourke St just next to the tennis courts.
Mt Buller are constantly throwing events our way and we’ll keep you posted with the next round of things to do up the mountain before the snow hits!
