  • Print out the attachment in your confirmation email
  • Show the attachment at the Resort Entrance (Howman's Gap), or at the stop point on Bogong High Plains Road (opposite ATS)

It is yet to be confirmed if a daily allocation of resort entry day permits are required for the 2021 Snow Season. Season Permit holders or those with accommodation booked are not included in this capped number, if it does occur. If re-instated in 2021, the reason we are required to manage the capacity in the resort is to comply with government directions during this time.

When purchasing a resort entry permit online, guests will be required to confirm who will be travelling in their vehicle including name and telephone number to allow for traceability (as per any Victorian hospitality venue). This is a DHHS government directive and a condition of entry to the resort for the 2021 snow season.

Short-term Resort Entry Permits are not available for purchase at this time. Please check back at a later date.

If you plan on staying in the resort please ensure your accommodation is booked before booking your resort entry permit!

If you are unable to print your resort entry permit or arrive at the ticket box (Howman's Gap) without your printed permit you will be subject to an additional charge of $6.50 per day, as the online discount will be void.

No cash will be accepted, credit card only.

What does the Resort Entry fee pay for?

Resort Entry fees are an important part of resort operations, funding essential services such as Ski Patrol, Snow Clearing, Guest Services and much more.

Ski Patrol

Ski Patrol are the front line soldiers in Falls Creek’s safety and emergency response. Your Resort Entry fees help to ensure that this crew of trained professionals are available on the slopes, around the village and in the resort at large to attend to any emergency situation that arises at Falls Creek.

Snow Clearing

Every time it snows our crews get to work clearing it from the Bogong High Plains Road so visitors can safely drive to Falls Creek. We also groom the village roads and clear stairs, access ways and public areas so everybody can get around the village safely.

Cross Country Grooming

Our cross country ski trails are among the best in the world thanks to the hard work of our grooming fleet. Your fees help keep the technology current and the 65km+ network expertly maintained.

Info & Public Spaces

Our visitor information staff work tirelessly to help hundreds of visitors a day in person, on the phone and by email and social media. Your fees help provide this service as well as maintaining public spaces and shelters that are used by all.

Transport & Parking

Traffic management is a tough job with up to 5,000 visitors and 2,000 cars staying at Falls Creek overnight. Your fees make it possible for our crews to safely park every vehicle and provide free shuttle services to get visitors from A to B each and every day of the season.

Waste & Environment

It’s not an attractive job but somebody has to do it! Your fees go towards our clean water supply, working sewage and removal of rubbish with a responsible approach to minimising the impact of over 150,000 visitors in a season.

WARNING UNDER THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW AND FAIR TRADING ACT 2012

Under the Australian Consumer Law (Victoria), several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the Supplier is required to ensure that any recreational services it supplies to you —

  • are rendered with due care and skill;
  • are reasonably fit for any purpose which you, either expressly or by implication, make known to the Supplier; and
  • might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the Supplier.

Under section 22 of the Act, the Supplier is entitled to ask you to agree that these statutory guarantees do not apply to you. If you enter the Resort and thereby accept these terms & conditions, you will be agreeing that your rights to sue the Supplier under the Act if you are killed or injured because the services provided were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in these terms & conditions.

NOTE: The change to your rights, as set out in these terms & conditions, does not apply if your death or injury is due to gross negligence on the Supplier's part. Gross negligence, in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act or omission. See regulation 5 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Regulations 2012 and section 22(3)(b) of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012.

however it may be caused and even if caused by negligence or lack of due care and skill of the Supplier, its personnel, contractors, 4 Site Australia Pty Ltd and any associated entities, arising from or connected with the supply or organisation of or participation in recreational services or recreational activities, except to the extent that it is caused by the reckless conduct of the Supplier, its personnel, contractors, 4 Site Australia Pty Ltd or any associated entities.

WARNING UNDER THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW AND FAIR TRADING ACT 2012

        Under the Australian Consumer Law (Victoria), several statutory guarantees apply to the supply of certain goods and services. These guarantees mean that the Supplier is required to ensure that any recreational services it supplies to you —

  • are rendered with due care and skill;
  • are reasonably fit for any purpose which you, either expressly or by Implication, make known to the Supplier; and
  • might reasonably be expected to achieve any result you have made known to the Supplier.

        Under section 22 of the Act, the Supplier is entitled to ask you to agree that these statutory guarantees do not apply to you. If you enter the Resort and thereby accept these terms & conditions, you will be agreeing that your rights to sue the Supplier under the Act if you are killed or injured because the services provided were not in accordance with these guarantees, are excluded, restricted or modified in the way set out in these terms & conditions.

        NOTE: The change to your rights, as set out in these terms & conditions, does not apply if your death or injury is due to gross negligence on the Supplier’s part. Gross negligence, in relation to an act or omission, means doing the act or omitting to do an act with reckless disregard, with or without consciousness, for the consequences of the act or omission. See regulation 5 of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Regulations 2012 and section 22(3)(b) of the Australian Consumer Law and Fair Trading Act 2012.
