Wildlife Tours Australia's Lake Mountain one-day tour will take you on a full day adventure to see some of the best sights in Victoria. The day will begin with a three-hour stay atop Lake Mountain. You can line up for a toboggan race, build the perfect snowman or walk to the mountain summit for amazing views of the surrounding area. Even though three hours may seem a short time, it is more than enough to fully experience and enjoy the fresh powder that falls on Lake Mountain. Following your trip to the snow, you'll travel to Marysville to explore its giant, cascading waterfalls.

Winter attire including a waterproof jacket, long pants, cloed in shoes, gloves and beanies are advised if you want to stay as warm as you can be while in the snow.
