The village of Dinner Plain is nestled in the middle of the Great Alpine Road. Only 10 kilometres from the panoramic mountain views surrounding Mount Hotham, Dinner Plain gives holiday makers the choice of outdoor recreation in all seasons. Located above the snowline at 1520 metres, Dinner Plain is Australia's best year-round destination and during winter it transforms into an ideal ski holiday destination. Set among the snow gums, the architecture of Dinner Plain is reminiscent of the High Country cattlemen’s huts.  

During summer, enjoy bushwalking and bike riding along the cross country ski trails and surrounding Alpine National Park.  A great ski holiday venue in winter, you can follow the cross country trails, snow shoe, toboggan or ease into downhill skiing on gentle runs before you take to the legendary runs of Mount Hotham.

Mount Hotham is widely regarded as Australia's powder snow capital and is only 10km along the Great Alpine Road from Dinner Plain. Dinner Plain has become the preferred ski holiday destination for many families wanting to enjoy the skiing of Hotham during the day, while being able to relax and enjoy the amenities of Dinner Plain after a day on the slopes.

Open all year round, Dinner Plain features an extensive choice of accommodation, cafés, restaurants and bars. Relax by the fireside, explore the bush trails or spoil yourself at the Onsen Retreat and Spa.
