Family fun at Mt Baw Baw
Earlier this week we took a day trip to Mt Baw Baw which is Melbourne's closest downhill ski, snowboard, toboggan and snow play resort.
Mt Baw Baw is nestled high amongst the Great Dividing Range and located only two and a half hours from Melbourne.
It is a perfect spot for beginners to learn to Ski plus there is a toboggan park with dedicated snowmaking and a magic carpet which the kids will love.
We were keen to stay the night on the mountain, however with a new puppy in our family a day trip worked really well.
We left home around 7.30am and were on the mountain and picking up toboggans by 10am.
We spent two fun hours at the toboggan park and then headed to Café 11 to sip Hot Chocolates and coffee overlooking the slopes.
It was then time to ski. My husband Pete is a good skier and has enjoyed many trips to the snow over the years, but for the kids and I it was only our second trip to the snow and Mt Baw Baw was a perfect spot to learn some new skills as there is a huge area for beginners to practise and master some skills.
We spent a beautiful couple of hours skiing and then headed for a quick lunch at the Alpine Tavern.
Our final stop on our snow day was for a cuddle with the resident alpine dingoes.
There are three gorgeous dingoes that live at Mt Baw Baw (as well as some in the wild) and we got to enjoy cuddles with two of the resident alpine dingoes, Rowdy & Warragul.
The dingoes were just beautiful and so friendly and loved having a cuddle and getting a treat.
Taylor from Mt Baw Baw taught us so much about these precious animals and the role they play in our eco-system and we left with memories to last a lifetime.
We could not have enjoyed our time at Mt Baw Baw more and huge thank you to Georgina, Amon, Taylor and Progressive PR for hosting us for the day.
