A Lake Mountain day tour is the most easily reached snowfields adventure for families from Melbourne.

Setting out for snow, your Acacia guide will first transport you through the glorious Yarra Valley and mountain ash forests of the Yarra ranges to the postcard-perfect Alpine foothill village of Marysville, a lush green spot in which to grab a morning coffee before your Lake Mountain tour.

From there it’s on to Lake Mountain with its 37 kilometres of cross-country trails, slopes and toboggan runs offering something for even the little ones, or let them run wild with harmless snow play. Silvery trees stand tall set against staggeringly blue skies with views for miles and you can warm frozen hands with a hot drink from the Lake Mountain Cafe.

Once everyone has had their freezing fun, we’ll transport you back to Melbourne but not before stopping at your choice of the Yarra Valley’s finest gourmet offerings, from handcrafted chocolatiers to cheesemongers. As for the grown-ups, they can opt for a wine tasting or perhaps sample beer and cider at Napoleone Brewery.

Acacia can tailor your day to ensure your have the perfect Lake Mountain day tour from Melbourne.
