Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your full-day adventure begins in the early morning with hotel pickup in a comfortable minivan. Relax on the drive to Lake Mountain resort, a popular weekend getaway for Melburnians. You’ll have a chance to purchase breakfast at a stop along the way.

Your guide will orient you to the layout of the resort, which encompasses 23 miles (37 km) of cross-country ski trails, plus open meadows and toboggan hills. Decide how you’d like to spend your time at Lake Mountain, whether it’s gliding across powder on cross-country skis, sliding on a toboggan, or simply building a snowman. Ski lessons, snow gear, and equipment rentals are available at the resort (own expense).

Purchase a meal at the resort’s on-site café for lunch, and then depart for Steavenson Waterfalls in the early afternoon. Enjoy a guided nature walk to the viewing platform where five different cascades plunge through the forest to the rocky pools below. With a total drop of nearly 400 feet (122 m), Steavenson is one of Victoria's tallest falls. 

Continue on to the charming Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery to satisfy your sweet tooth. Explore tables piled high with more than 150 kinds of chocolate and sample house-made cocoa goodies and ice cream. You might be tempted to purchase treats to take home, such as boxed truffles, single-origin bars, and chocolate-covered nuts.

Relax after your adventure on the return drive to Melbourne, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel in the early evening.

It was an amazing experience travelling with Tim. He was very organized and also played some amazing music along the drive. Everything was exceptionally well but for no Wi-Fi on board. Other than that it was an awesome experience.

Amazing day in the snow.

This day trip to Lake Mountain was one of the best tours we have experienced. Our tour operator (Lewis/ Louis) did a fantastic job of guiding us through the day. We were very lucky to experience an afternoon of falling snow and the scenery was breath-taking. Our driver was very calm, and showed great experience when driving home in icy conditions, I felt comfortable that he had it under control. Fantastic day, loved every minute and my husband and I agreed that our guide was one of the most competent, friendly young men we had ever met. He really made the day enjoyable and stress free. I would do this tour again in a heart - beat!. Thank you so very much for a great day.

The tour was ok. The trip covered all things listed. However, we had to pay all things on the tour: breakfast, lunch, snow play,.... . In addition, no wifi on the bus. Not very funny.

The tour was good especially on the mountain. However I wish that there was more time spent at the Chocolaterie while including an introduction about some history regarding the chocolaterie and some information on how chocolate is made.
