Getting to Mt Hotham by car

LOCATION & MAPS

Hotham is nestled in amongst the Victorian Alps of the Great Dividing Range. It is the only ski resort in the Southern Hemisphere where the village is located on top of the mountain meaning you can drive right to our front door. Hotham is  accessible from two directions via the Great Alpine Road all year round.
