Falls Creek is known as one of the snow skiing location of Victoria but is also popular during summer as a push bike riding destination. Some choose to ride up the mountain and some take a lift to the top for a downhill run. There is a bike shop at Falls Creek (next to the car parking area) with specially built trailers to bring bikes to the top.

We drove to from Bright to Falls Creek during Autumn - the road is very windy but beautiful as you climb up through the mountains. It was freezing when we got out at Falls Creek with a cold wind in early April. Luckily we had plenty of warm clothing in the car.  

Of course it would be much busier at Falls Creek during the snow season and as you look around you can see where the snow lifts and ski runs are plus various accommodation option for skiers. We walked across the road to find a place for lunch and found that the Stingray Bar and Café was the only place still serving meals. This was quite expensive at $21 for a burger but I guess you have to expect these prices in a tourist area.
