===== IMPORTANT=====

Ticket Sellouts: Please note: if you are buying close to the event date, please expect that tickets may not be available as our buses almost always sellout. If tickets become available, we'll post to the event page that they're available. Unfortunately we cannot reserve tickets and we're unable to individually let people know when tickets come out - please keep an eye on the event page if you miss out.

Transfer service only: Unlike other New To Melbourne trips that are guided tours, this product is a Mount Buller return transfer service only (with included stops) and not a tour. As such, if you want to catch the coach back to Melbourne, you must be on time for the bus departure time. If you would like to stay at Mount Buller, please let the driver and tour guide know when you to the bus.

Safety & personal risk: Please be aware that this is a transfer service only and that customers snow board, ski and visit Mount Buller at their own risk. Snow boarding and skiing can be dangerous sports and there are particular risks with cold weather / snow and these sports that you are responsible for researching & preparing prior to visiting. Please approach the snow season with safety as your first priority.
Return time: if you are late to the bus, it will likely leave without you as the driver has limited hours they can legally be on the road (under TSV regulation) and must leave on time. At the end of the day (especially on weekends) there is often a lot of people coming down the mountain on the shuttle bus - causing lines and delays. Please plan accordingly so you do not miss your transfer back to Melbourne.
Ticket prices, dates & sellout:
As always with our ticketed events: get in early as later tickets become more expensive closer to the event/tour date. Please have your ticket printed or on your phone to display before boarding the bus. Please note: tickets (very) often sell out during busy seasons and puiblic holidays. Once tickets sell out, there are no further tickets released for that tour date/time. We suggest purchasing ahead of time to ensure you get the travel dates you want.
