High in Victoria’s Alpine National Park sits a real winter wonderland, Falls Creek – the largest and best ski resort in the state. While avid snowsports fans will love the ski-in, ski-out hotel access, the après offerings in Falls Creek are just as impressive: think bubbling hot tubs on balconies, opulent day spas and gourmet restaurants. Here’s our pick of the best places to book for your next trip to Falls Creek, Victoria – bookable on Culture Trip.

Frueauf Village, for ski-in, ski-out in the Middle Village

As striking inside as it is outside, Frueauf Village offers a contemporary take on a traditional alpine getaway. Think lovingly-decorated self-contained apartments with private outdoor hot tubs and direct ski access to the slopes. For extra indulgence, splash out on a penthouse or upgrade to a private chalet with a gas-log fire and sauna. When it comes to food, the in-house restaurant Milch Cafe and Bar wouldn’t look out of place on the streets of Melbourne – and the menu stacks up, too. Try the slow-roasted lamb shank followed by a slice of white chocolate and pecan pie.

QT Falls Creek, for a stylish pad in the Lower Village

QT Falls Creek has everything you want from a winter escape, including three drinking and dining establishments – open for pre-piste breakfasts, midday snacks and after-dinner drinks – as well as a heated indoor pool and easy lift access to the slopes. Choose a one, two or three-bedroom designer apartment – the huge picture windows and private outdoor hot tubs are the cherry on the cake here.

Rising up from the Kiewa Valley, Falls Creek Country Club is a striking six-storey resort with 68 bright and airy apartments. The prime location means it’s an easy stroll from town and a quick hop onto the chairlift to reach the slopes – plus it’s one of the few Falls Creek resorts with on-site parking. If you don’t feel like braving the cold – no judgement – head down to the pool, sauna and spa, or relax with a massage.

Inside the retro timber and stone retreat, you’ll find just two cosy en-suite rooms and one split-level suite. It might be small in size, but it’s certainly not lacking amenities. After a day on the slopes, don your fluffy bathrobe and head to the on-site sauna and hot tub.
