Mount St Gwinear is a family friendly snow attraction with free entry which offers toboggan runs, cross country trails, a snowplay area and a heated shelter room. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are available from a food van on weekends and school holidays.
There is plenty to do (whether there is snow or not) enjoy activities such as:
There are two toboggan runs. In winter you can hire toboggans from the Parks Victoria office on site for a cost of $4 per hour with a $10 refundable deposit. Bring cash as it is the only payment method accepted.
You can always bring your own but remember only plastic moulded toboggans are allowed on the runs.
Snowshoeing is permitted on the ski trail network. There is a short Winter Walking Track leading to a lookout that starts at the St Gwinear carpark and extends approximately 600m (1.2km return).
The area offers 12km of cross country trails, with the first Main Trail departing from the Mount St Gwinear car park. There is a loop that visitors can undertake accessing 5 trails. These trails are called Cascades Trail, Saints Trail, Tullicoutty Trail and Gwinear Trail. There is an access point on the Saints Trail at Phillack Saddle to link onto a cross country ski trail (Tanjil) for those accessing the Baw Baw Resort Alpine Village.
