Off Mountain car parking – Harrietville

For a variety of reasons, many people prefer not to take their own car up into the snow, but still want to get to the snow conveniently and in comfort.
Hoy's Harrietville has the answer- drive your car to Harrietville, and park it in our Security Car Park. You can then take the coach or taxi to the snowfields. We upgraded our car park in 2012.
