Kids Stay Free

Do you want your kids to enjoy the thrill of seeing snow for the first time? With our Kids Stay Free offer, it's never been easier or more affordable. That's right - in June and September, up to two kids can stay free of charge when accompanied by two sharing adults. All participating properties feature the Kids Stay Free logo, so make sure you give them a call for their best prices and terms and conditions. Check out the accommodation listings and Kids Stay Free wherever you see the logo!

For further information and to book, speak to one of our friendly reservations consultants on 1800 BULLER or email

Better Value

Mt Buller is the only resort in Australia that extends kids' pricing all the way through to Year 12 students, keeping kids on the snow, in lessons and rental gear at kid's prices (that's half the regular adult cost) for that bit longer. That's why we say that "Kids are Bigger at Buller".

Children under 5 years of age enjoy FREE lift passes and sightseer lift tickets too.

Great fun while they learn

Buller Kids' Centre in the Ski & Snowboard School is the place for fun at Mt Buller. Kids love learning to ski while making new friends in this specially tailored environment that keeps them safe, learning at their own pace, making friends and in good hands so Mum and Dad can relax and enjoy their holiday too.

Bunyips - 3-6 years

Little Buller Bunyips can join a full or half day program which includes lessons from a qualified international team of instructors, lift pass, snacks, hot lunch and supervised activities. Kids build their confidence in the safety of the Magic Forest away from the bustle of the main slopes.

Buller Kids - 7-14years

Also offered in full or half day formats, Buller Kids love learning together with their own instructor. Activities, lift pass, lunch and snacks are included in the sessions and weekly races complete with medal presentations are a highlight.


The tiniest snow bunnies from 3 months to 3 years old are in safe hands with the qualified childcare team in the Buller Kids' Crèche. Overlooking the fun in the Magic Forest the littlies play, colour, listen to stories and even have the odd surprise visit from Buller's popular mascot Barry the Pygmy Possum.

Head first

All kids participating in Ski & Snowboard School programs at Mt Buller (and their instructors) are required to wear a helmet. Helmets are a smart idea and we are taking the lead at Mt Buller to encourage their use this winter. All rental packages for kids at Buller Sports include a helmet.

A whole week for Kids

Kids' Week (21-27 September) is an action-packed affair at Mt Buller with dedicated activities every single day to keep little people entertained. Free shows, family friendly movies in the cinema and more make this a perfect week for families to hit the slopes.

Activities for all ages

Climb the walls!

Mt Buller boasts a well-equipped sports hall with loads of fun activities for kids to try if they are looking for something different off the snow. Scaling the climbing wall, bouncing on the trampolines, taking aim with indoor archery, or challenging friends to a game of basketball or badminton are great ways for the kids to burn up any left over energy! Group bookings available. Call 03 5777 6000 for information.

Big screen action

Mt Buller is home to Australia's highest cinema and regularly screens recent release movies all season long. Extra matinee screenings are popular on days when the weather closes in and there is always a good selection of kids' movies on offer. And popcorn from the candy bar of course.

Roam for gnomes

Mt Buller has a population of little gnomes that can be found hiding all around the Village. Grab a Gnome Roam map and see how many of Mt Buller's favourite residents you can find. Kids of all ages love searching out these cheery little fellows. It's fun and it's free.


It just wouldn't be a trip to the snow without a slide on a toboggan. Mt Buller has two dedicated toboggan parks for snowplayers to slip and slide on their very own slopes. No charge applies for access to the parks and the Village toboggan park even has its own snowmaking to top up the natural snowfall and make a little extra snow for those snowball fights.
