The resort is easily accessed via air, car or coach. Hotham is the highest alpine resort in Australia with its own airport! Direct flights from Sydney with connections from Brisbane, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth make this the easiest way to get on top. Fly in and ski OUT!
Drive direct yourself is always an option with the sealed Great Alpine Road your magic carpet to the snow. Melbourne guests also have the luxurious option of the direct Frosty Fruits Ski Trip coach, departing from Southern Cross Station and swooshing you straight to the snow. Why drive when someone else can? Recline and relax!
It’s not just days packed with action, as the evenings also host a heap of social events and entertainment. A gourmet Welcome Lunch, Welcome Dinner and a special Welcome Après and Personal Shopping Faire greet guests on the first day. There are group breakfasts and lunches each day. A special “Sivilised Supper” fine dinning event at Dinner Plain; Pizza Night; Dinner Cabaret andFarewell Champagne Lunch.
This years event also boasts two new events, a day spa afternoon and the first “Frosty Fruits Ski Trip Film Night”, both held at the gorgeous Onsen Retreat + Spa, Dinner Plain, Australia’s first indoor-outdoor retreat and spa with a Japanese inspired onsen.
This trip breaks the barrier not just in terms of quality and ease of access, but also height! The trip marks the highest ever drag event in Australia with the stellar performance of Drag Legend Dolly Diamond and her show, “There’s No Business Like Snow Business”.
Dolly is a cabaret performer of international standing and is well known to Victorian audiences having performed at Daylesford’s Chill Out Festival, numerous events in Melbourne and also the Coast Out Festival in NSW.
Dolly’s show forms the kick-off for the final night party as well, with “The Great Gaydar Disco Snowball” capping off the trip. Hosted at The General and featuring a specially imported Sydney DJ or two, with party production designed to lift the roof off the building, this night promises to be one they’ll talk about for years!
