my 3 kids (4,6,8 years) attended 2 half day lessons (afternoon) in school holidays. the younger kids up to 6 years was well organised (4 kids to an instructor) and staff were really warm with kids and the area is well set up (tucked away, roped off, escalator type thing to pull kids up hill etc). the older kids 7 years up was no very well, organised -difficult to find where it even was (nobody told you when purchased tickets), in middle of busy part of mountain, not really sectioned off, far too many kids for instructors, area not well,set up and quite intimidating (would be very easy to lose a child). lessons very expensive $150 for 6 hour day and $90 for 3 hours and of course you have to purchase lift passes and hire ski gear which cost even more. get a written report at end of lessons and sign children out t end of lesson for safety. Mt Buller is a very very expensive place and far too busy on school holidays (have no where near enough staff on to accomadate (we lined up for an hour just to hire our skis)
attended a function at the thornbury True Blue Bistro and caf (sister caf to Tullamarine one) , at large sports community complex with bike paladrone, lawn bowls, ovals, etc. venue area was overly light for a night time function although I am sure they could have dimmed lights if requested. you can bring your own music and desserts. food supplied was not very healthy or appetising - hot chips, party pies, sausage rolls etc. staff were really friendly. well stocked bar. room itself was very basic and not much atmosphere. lots of tables for seating, plenty of parking.
