Anapas Lodge - the ideal family and small group "off mountain" getaway for SKI SEASON 2017.

Become a follower on Twitter & post tweets of your stay at Anapas Lodge. Also, search Anapas Lodge on Facebook, 'Like us' & view our video on our FB page.

Let Anapas Lodge be your High Country retreat for Ski Season 2017! Anapas Lodge offers a comfortable and enjoyable self contained experience with ski and dining discounts (inquire with us). To get to Mt. Buller, you are only a 4 minute drive to the Mt.Buller entry gates and a 25 minute drive to the top car park. To get to Lake Eildon, you are only a 30 minute drive to launch your boat at Goughs Bay. Whether to sight see, mountain bike, 4wd, go fishing, boating, toboggan, snow board or ski, you are not far from the action on Buller/Lake Eildon all year round.

The Delatite River can be heard from Anapas Lodge and King Parrots frequent many a visitor at the lodge which can be hand fed with seeds. If skiing is not your thing, beyond winter, visit the local regional wineries, attend the Merrijig Rodeo on the Labour Day long weekend, visit Craigs Hut on Mt. Stirling (made famous in the film "The Man From Snow River"), go mountain bike riding, horse riding, bushwalking, 4 x 4 tours, do the Mt.Buller Nature Summit Walk in Summer, enjoy the watersports on offer on Lake Eildon, browse local markets and antique stores, pamper yourself at a 'day spa' or just simply sleep in and relax on one of our decking / entertaining areas with a coffee or wine and a good magazine.

For dining out, the local Merriig pub/bistro "The Hunt Club" is about a 7 minute drive away (bookings recommended to secure a table especially in busy times). Two streets away is the Pinnacle Valley Resort Restaurant and Bar open for dinner Thurs to Sun(bookings essential to secure a table). One street away is The Mill Inn (open Thursdays to Sundays, but check with the Mill Inn for trading times) and at Mirimbah, base of Mt. Buller, is a cafe / petrol station (open Wed to Sun from 8am to 4pm, from Melb Cup weekend to Easter and re-opens for the ski season). There is also picnic facilities and a playground at Mirimbah or try the 'Friday Furnace' at the Merrijig Motor Inn all year round, where you can get a wood fire pizza Friday nights from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Mansfield is a 15-20 minute drive away if you want to wander the streets and check out all that Mansfield has to offer with speciality stores, two supermarkets, a Cinema with the latest movies and many other dining establishments. Don't forget to visit the Mansfield Tourist Information Centre if you want to investigate day trips from Anapas Lodge to Jamieson, Goughs Bay, Kevington, Tolmie, Bonnie Doon etc. Maybe even charter a helicopter to sightsee the high country from above, visit the Mansfield Zoo or have a round of golf at the Mansfield golf course!

We also have plenty of tourist brochures in the Lodge so you can plan your holiday activities.

Comfortable and very close to Mt Buller gates

  • 5 of 5

The place was really well suited for our group of 3 families with 3 kids. It was clean, comfortable, spacious and homely. The fireplace was a nice treat and we really liked the big map of Australia on the dining table! The location says Merrijig but it's quite close to Sawmill Settlement so very close to the gates which saved us a lot of driving time.

Spacious and well appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over during Summer and found it to be enjoyable; well located and easy access to both Mansfield and Mt Buller. Lots of spacious living area, including outdoors, parking, and a huge fenced rear yard. Phone reception is tricky but that is to be expected in this region. Would come again!
