Most Victorians would be aware of Mount Buller's reputation as a premium alpine skiing destination in the winter time but few would consider visiting the mountain in the off season.
I would recommend it for anyone who wishes to test their uphill road cycling skills, for motor bike enthusiasts or mountain bike riders. Indeed the ski hire shop, Altitude, becomes a bike hiring shop during this time. Or maybe you prefer the speed of your activities down a notch preferring to hike, climb, abseil or see the views on horse back.
Strolling around the tranquil village with barely a car or human in sight may be eerie and reminiscent of a ghost town but you can better appreciate the architecture that covers the gamut of styles from 1960s kitsch to state-of-the-art, contemporary million-dollar chalets. And besides, it's the time of the year you won't be fighting over a car parking space.
