Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan 2012

Shaping the Future of Victoria's Alpine Resorts

Victoria’s alpine resorts are special and unique places – visited by more than 1.2 million people per year and contributing over $570 million and 5,800 jobs to the Victorian economy in winter alone for 2011.

In December 2012, the Alpine Resorts Strategic Plan 2012 was ensorsed in accordance with section 33G of the Alpine Resorts Management Act 1997.

The 2012 Plan sets out a framework for the development, promotion, management and use of Victoria’s six alpine resorts: Falls Creek, Mount Hotham, Mount Buller, Mount Stirling, Mount Baw Baw and Lake Mountain.

The vision of the 2012 Plan is for Victoria’s alpine resorts to be vibrant, growing and sustainable places, delivering alpine recreational and tourism experiences that are available to all.

The plan outlines six strategic objectives:

  • Strategic Objective 1: Enhancing the visitor experience and developing resorts
  • Strategic Objective 2: Delivering resort services and infrastructure efficiently and accountably
  • Strategic Objective 3: Building partnerships
  • Strategic Objective 4: Respecting the alpine environment
  • Strategic Objective 5: Broadening access opportunities
  • Strategic Objective 6: Regulatory reform

The Alpine Resorts (Management) Act 1997 requires the Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council to conduct a five-yearly review of its strategic plan.

Extensive public consultation was conducted. A total of 250 people participated in workshops in Melbourne and at each alpine resort, and 66 submissions were received.

The Alpine Resorts Co-ordinating Council wishes to thank everyone who participated in the development of and consultation on the Plan. Your input has been extremely valuable in helping the ARCC finalise the plan for Government endorsement. We look forward to working with you during the implementation phase.
