Hotham is one of a kind. It’s Australia’s only upside down resort (the village is on top) and offers more choices and more powder than any other Australian ski resort.

The off piste terrain is vast and, refreshingly, there are fewer people to get in your way. Soak in incredible views over the Australian Alps, get off the grid and explore, or enjoy exhilaration-filled days on the slopes. Hotham is yours to conquer. Hotham Alpine Resort operates all year round and is located in the Australian Alpine National Park only 4.5 hours drive from Melbourne and 8 hours from Sydney.

In the winter you can easily enjoy everything the resort has to offer with on and off mountain accommodation at Hotham or Dinner Plain, which is a luxurious alpine village only 10 km from the resort. The accommodation available to book includes self-contained apartments, chalets, lodges and motel style rooms that are suitable for singles, couples groups or families.
