Hello readers! A month ago, my friends and I went to Mount Buller for a mini-getaway from the hectic city life. It was an impromptu trip, planned only several days before we left. Nevertheless, the reckless decision was absolutely worth it. Our group didn’t sleep the night before (honestly it didn’t really affect us because we were so pumped the entire day!!) and stayed awake to catch the 6am bus on Saturday. We bonded over hot chocolate, fish and chips, asian food, and the ‘chairlift’ ride.
How do I get there?
We booked through the Extragreen holidays package tour because it was affordable and reasonably cheap. However, there are other coaches which provide the same service;
What should I bring?
Bring a camera, because your iPhone might fail on you halfway. (Our phones died because iPhone’s battery finishes faster under cold conditions) — https://www.getorchard.com/blog/iphone-battery-dies-in-cold-weather/ (if you don’t believe me)
Snacks (for the bus ride)
What should I do?
Book a ski/snowboarding course, or try the chairlift rides.
If you don’t want to ski or snowboard, then consider renting a toboggan to race it down the slopes, with other kids.
What should I wear?
Winter clothes! Thermal socks and waterproof boots are essential because sports shoes (nike ones esp) won’t keep you warm…at all.

Hope you guys can plan your next trip to Buller during winter next year!
