Cold, rainy mornings, shorter days --- winter is definitely here. It's time to rug up and lounge with a warm cup of tea in front of the fireplace.
Winter may not be the season all Australians love, but it's definitely something lots of people look forward to. Melbourne offers activities aplenty during this season, despite the gloomy weather. This year, I will find time to explore and enjoy what Melbourne winter has to offer.
I barely got the change to write about our snow trip last year, so I'm making time to write about it now.
It was a fun-filled day trip with a few friends -- all of whom were excited to build a snowman! We went to Lake Mountain Alpine Resort, which is Melbourne's closest alpine resort. The resort offers snow sport lessons, tobogganing, bush-walking, and other boardwalk activities.
Before going on a scenic drive to Lake Mountain, check their website for more information on the weather, resort rates, booking and equipment rental, and vehicle chain requirements. During the winter season, especially in Melbourne, it always pays to come prepared for anything and everything.
