How to arrive at Our Location

WHERE WE ARE LOCATED

Your Mt Baw Baw adventure is merely a 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne, 1 hour from the heart of Gippsland, and 2 hours from the Mornington Peninsula. Don’t rely on your GPS! Some GPS systems don’t have some roads recorded correctly.  Please ensure that you arrive with half a tank of fuel, there is NO  Petrol station at Mt Baw Baw.

Before you  come up  to the Resort,  fill up your vehicle with petrol or diesel , ensure that you PUT IN   Antifreeze,  into your tank, otherwise your petrol will freeze/ your diesel will gel.

In the  White Season, you must  carry wheel chains for your car.  You can get chains at the bottom of the Mountain just as you enter the Resort.   They will fit them for you if you wish.
