  • Description

    The Victorian Downhill Series will hit Mt Buller on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 January for two days of downhill action on Mt Buller’s famed trail, International.

    Round three of the series will take place at Mt Buller on the acclaimed ‘International’ track, which is easily the resort’s most difficult and a long-time favourite of riders. The track is over two kilometres in length and sees riders descend a total elevation of over 250 metres. The challenging downhill course contains numerous rock gardens, timber man-made features, wall rides, step downs and even a road gap, which promised to give spectators plenty of adrenaline-filled action over the weekend.

  • Getting There

    Mt Buller is just 248kms north-east of Melbourne via Mansfield. In three hours you can be out of the city and high in the mountains! There are a few different routes you can take from Melbourne:
    Plenty Rd via Whittlesea and Yea
    Via the Hume Hwy to Tallarook and Yea
    Via the Maroondah Hwy to Yarra Glen and Yea
    Travelling from the north, follow the Hume Hwy south and take the Mansfield exit onto the Midland Hwy (B300). To get here via the most direct route using Google Maps and GPS, it is best to set your destination to Yea, then once you are in Yea set it for Mansfield, then Mt Buller from Mansfield.
