A Unique Alpine Village Nestled in the Victorian Alps

Dinner Plain is the perfect place for a country escape, surrounded by pristine nature and endless adventure opportunities.

Dinner Plain is located just 15 minutes from Mt Hotham, and is a truly individual village filled with rustic Australian charm. It is an ideal mountain get-away any time of the year particularly in winter when the Alps come alive with ski and snowboard lovers, couples and families, all enjoying what the snow-covered Dinner Plain has to offer.

The cosy village is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Dinner Plain boasts scenic village and bush walks, a Japanese-style onsen spa and retreat with outdoor hot springs, and various wine and dining options including Australia’s highest brewery.

Choose your adventures with biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing along trails that leave from the centre of the cosy village, explore historic cattlemen’s huts from the gold rush era or head over to the famed downhill ski runs of Mount Hotham, with a shuttle bus able to run you there and back in just 10 minutes.

During winter there is a perfect beginner ski hill, complete with tobogganing and a snow-play area to make the ultimate snowman. The ski hill also runs on Wednesday and Saturday nights so you can ski under the starlight.

All year round, Dinner Plain has no resort entry fee. So come and see for yourself everything that this gorgeous alpine village has to offer. 

Toboggan at Cobungra Platter

Dinner Plain is the home of fast-paced family fun in season 2020. For the first time ever, Tobogganing will be the star attraction on Dinner Plain’s Cobungra Flat Slope. At 75m long and 40m wide, this is the biggest and longest toboggan slope in Australia!

We’ve invested in the fun, not just to offer the biggest tobogganing around, but the best too. With full snowmaking and grooming, we’ll be keeping the slope looking pristine as deep into the season as possible.

Some things will be the same, but some will be different too. Our operating plans mean walk-up access to tobogganing without pre-booking, and of course participating for free, but there will also be capacity limits applied. With sound management and the ability to create two separately enclosed spaces in peak times, we’re confident we can cater to demand.


The Cobungra Flat slope will be open for Tobogganing from June 24 with adequate snow conditions. From this date, tobogganing will operate daily throughout the snow season.

Location -  Cobungra Flat Slope, Scrubbers End

Cost -  Free
