Where to Park

Free overnight parking is at Bullocks Flat. We have no overnight parking on the mountain at Perisher due to snow clearing operations and road closures. 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. 

June Long Weekend / Peak Festival Parking

Sometimes NPWS allow limited parking at our lodge and Smiggin Holes for Peak Festival Weekend (June Long Weekend). In the event that roads are open and parking is permitted we will notify you.

Driving all the Way to Perisher

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. Save yourself the inconvenience, take the tube.
