Getting to Falls Creek

Driving directions to the Victorian Alps

Getting to Falls Creek - Falls Creek

The options for ‘Getting to Falls Creek‘ are huge, from self drive, to flying, trains, coaches, limousines and helicopters. Buses and hire cars can meet trains and planes.

Getting Here by ROAD

Falls Creek is the closest alpine resort to Albury, an easy day’s drive from Sydney & four and a half hours drive from Melbourne. There are lots of options to get to Falls from driving all or part of the way to letting someone else take care of the driving for you by organising coach transfers.


The road to Falls Creek from Mount Beauty gently winds uphill for 32kms, so take your time and please drive carefully. During winter it is compulsory to carry snow chains however the road is regularly cleared of snow as required and chains are rarely fitted.

If chains are required then drivers will be notified by signs along the road ‘Fit Chains Here’. These signs will differentiate, depending on whether 4WDs are impacted or not.

No petrol is available at Falls Creek so make sure you fill up before you come up. In winter, diesel vehicles should fill up with Alpine Diesel from Mt Beauty or other local suppliers to ensure their vehicle works correctly in the cold conditions.

Drivers should also check at the local service stations their anti-freeze levels. This can be done with a ‘Glycometer’ and may save you a lot of time and money.
