Driving in your own car or a hire car is a great way to get to Mt Buller. It's only a short 3---hour drive from Melbourne via the Hume Highway or Maroondah Highway. No matter which route you take from Melbourne to Mt Buller you will eventually come to Mansfield - the closest major town to the Resort. Here you can hire snow chains for your vehicle and fill up on fuel (Diesel vehicles should top up with Alpine mix). From Mansfield follow the signs to Mt Buller.
At the base of Mt Buller (Mirimbah) you will be required to stop at the gate entry point and pay a fee to enter the Resort. Once through the gate entry point, continue up the road to Mt Buller where you will be met by an attendant who will guide you to a parking spot.
From here, you will take a 4WD taxi to your accommodation (fees apply). Once you're in the Village, there is a free Intra---Village Shuttle service that features three different routes to get you around the Village during your stay. If you'd like to drive to Mansfield but would prefer to sit back and relax for the trip up into the Mt Buller Village, you can always jump on a bus for the last leg of the trip. Mansfield - Mt Buller Bus Lines provides regular services from Mansfield, Merrijig and Mirimbah, which means no chain hire or mountain driving is required.
