Mt Buller Village

Perched on top of the mountain, Mount Buller village is where everything happens during ski season - it's where the accommodation is, the restaurants are, and, most importantly where you'll find the apres ski action.

There's more than 30 cafes and restaurants to choose from. Here's some that we think are kind of special.

  • Alberg Bistro and Bar: Located inside the ski-in/ski-out Alberg accommodation right on Bourke Street ski run, it's got an outdoor area where you can enjoy a beverage or two while watching skiers and boarders schuss by.
  • Chamois Restaurant at Enzian Hotel: After a few bevvies at the Austrian-style bar, a meal at the Chamois Restaurant will fill you up with hearty meals after a long day on the slopes.
  • Snow Pony: Because everyone loves a good Thai meal, Snow Pony serves up unique mix of contemporary Thai dishes and Spanish-influenced cuisine off the Bourke Street ski run.
