Where is Mt Hotham (27 Mar 2015)  Show all News

Hotham Alpine Resort is located in the heart of the Australian Alps National Park. It's classic Australian wilderness up here. Think snowgums, think rolling mountain ridges, think Man from Snowy River country... it's breathtaking.

The village itself is at 1750m, just below the summit of Mt Hotham (1861m). And it's easily accessible, thanks to Australia's newest touring route, The Great Alpine Road.

The Great Alpine Road

The Great Alpine Road runs from Wangaratta in the north of Victoria, to Bairnsdale in the south - and Hotham lies in the centre.
