RESORT ENTRY PERMITS


Resort Entry Permits are required for all vehicles at Falls Creek during the declared snow season.

WHAT IS RESORT ENTRY?

During the snow season all visitors and residents are required to pay a Resort Entry fee to enter Falls Creek Alpine Resort. Resort Entry is applicable from the first day of the season (June 6) to the last day (September 27). These fees don't just pay for parking. They are designated to contribute to a wide range of essential services that we all use whilst at the resort - services such as snow clearing, rubbish removal, clean water supply and sewage treatment to name a few.

HOW IS IT CHARGED?

Resort entry is charged per vehicle by way of a Resort Entry Permit. It doesn't matter how many people are in the car, it is just one charge per vehicle (unless you are in a vehicle with more than 12 adults - check below for more on this).

All vehicles must have a valid Resort Entry Permit for each day they are at Falls Creek - this includes the day of arrival and day of departure. 

TYPES OF PERMITS

DAY PERMIT

If you are visiting Falls Creek for just the day, or staying off-mountain for your visit (ie in Mt Beauty) then you need a Day Permit. Day Permits allow you to self-park in any of Falls Creek's Day Car Parks and you can stay at the Resort as late as you like.

NIGHT PERMIT

 

If you are staying at Falls Creek overnight you will need a Night Permit. Vehicles with a Night Permit will be parked in our Overnight Car Parking area for the duration of your stay. Our car parking staff will assist you in directing you to the right park and shuttling you to the Accommodation Transfer Terminal (or your accommodation if the Village is not in Ski-in Ski-out Mode.

2015 PRICING

Both Day and Night Permits cost $48 per day or $45 if bought online. This applies for every day your car is at Falls Creek including day of departure.

If you arrive after 1pm your first day is ½ price. Arrive after 4pm and your first day is FREE.

If you plan on coming to Falls Creek for 7 days or more it is worth looking at a Season Permit as the best value option.

BUS ENTRY

Visitors arriving by Bus (classified as a vehicle with 13 or more people including the driver) are charged Resort Entry at a per person rate of $17 per entry for adults and $7.50 per entry for children. An entry classifies as any time you pass the Falls Creek Ticket Box at Howmans Gap* into Falls Creek.

Children are classified as being between 5 - 17 years of age inclusive. Under 5 is free.

If you are travelling on a commercial Bus or Coach service, the Resort Entry fee has been factored into the cost of your ticket.

*Please note, the YMCA Howmans Gap Alpine Centre is located outside of the  Falls Creek resort boundaries so bus travel from this property is subject to the above.

School groups on an official school excursion/course program are eligible for School Group Resort Entry Concession (when travelling by bus). The concession rate applies at $7.50 per passenger per day for day trips (where the bus leaves the Resort at the end of each day) or $7.50 per passenger for the entire stay for overnight trips (regardless of number of nights stay). This price applies to all people on the bus, including teachers and driver.

Tertiary groups may also be granted School Group Resort Entry Concession but only where the group is entering the Resort for official education purposes.

To apply for concession access, Schools must provide written evidence that the trip is part of the school’s curriculum, and that all pasengers are enrolled in an officially recognised education course.  This evidence should be presented on a school letter head, signed by the principal or authorised delegate & presented with payment on the day of arrival.
