Free overnight parking is at Bullocks Flat  Skitube Terminal. As we are snowbound for most of the ski season, there is no overnight parking at our lodge nor on the mountain at Perisher due to snow clearing operations and road closures. The parking lot at Perisher is for day parking only. If you are using a GPS enter your destination as "Bullocks Flat" on Alpine Way. Bullocks Flat is below the snow line so chains are rarely required. 

Note: Sometimes NPWS allow limited parking at our lodge and Smiggin Holes for June and October Long Weekends. In the event that roads are open and parking is permitted we will notify you a few days prior to arrival.

We DO NOT recommend driving up to Perisher to drop bags off. Our lodge is usually snowbound for most of the season and regardless of conditions, road closures will be in place. Cars left overnight at Perisher will be fined and may be damaged during snow clearing operations. Additional NPWS entry fees will be payable, chains must be carried and roads can be very slow and hazardous. It will add at least 1 hour to your total journey in both directs. Save yourself the inconvenience, just take the tube!
