Travelling with friends and travelling with family are totally different things.

You have to be more careful about everything while travelling with family. You have to make sure that they feel safe and comfortable throughout the trip. Especially if kids are travelling along, you may need to take some extra efforts in planning. Choosing a family-friendly accommodation also comes under it. So here I am enlisting few factors associated with family-friendly accommodations to help you decide:

Family bedrooms: Family friendly accommodations should have special family bedrooms having special beds for children. These rooms should have individually controlled heating and daily service. Specialty lodges at Falls Creek provide you with such rooms.

Kid friendly: Travelling with kids really difficult, they hate new places and they get bored easily. You have to keep an eye on them all the time and this takes all your energy and time. Only a family friendly accommodation which can keep your kids happy, engaged and safe can save you in this case. There are family friendly lodges at Falls Creek which keeps your kids happy and busy with fun activities like early meals only for kids, entertainment programs, video games and cinema at cinema room. A caretaker is always present with them to ensure their safety. Family-friendly lodges in Falls Creek take good care of your kids with all these activities.

Spa: Spa relaxes your mind, renews the mind and revives the soul, they say. What can be more heavenly than having a spa on holiday, after all, the holiday is all about relaxation. Specialty lodges at Falls Creek have great Spas inside the lodge. Here body massages are provided by experienced and qualified massage therapists.

Near to Ski location: the ski location should be near to your accommodation so that you don't have to waste the energy in reaching the ski location. It's even better to have easy access to chair lifts. This way you can go back to the hotel to have hot buffet lunch and come back later.

Swimming pool: A hot bath after skiing whole day relaxes the whole body. An outdoor heated swimming pool is must in your accommodation if you are on Ski holiday. Family-friendly lodges in Falls Creek usually have an outdoor heated swimming pool to relax your muscles.

Pub: A good old fashioned pub would be great to have some nice drinks and meal at evening. They should have kid’s favourite dishes on the menu, so you can visit the pub with kids.

Doing a little research while selecting an accommodation for your holiday always helps. This way you can avoid many last minute problems, enjoy your holiday in peace and go back to the real life in a fresh mood.

If you are reading this, it means you are finally planning for an off-mountain snow holiday to Falls Creek. Now when you have decided on the place there are many other things that are going through your head like ski hire, lift passes, resort and accommodation choices, lessons, equipment etc. Let me tell you that when you make a selection of Falls Creek accommodation packages it may or may not include the activities. With a number of ski areas, what should be considered and what not to is a tricky question. Only a well-experienced person would be able to let you know that. Initially, the trip to Falls Creek was only considered for die-hard fans of skiers however in recent times it has modified in the way that all can enjoy it. A couple of lessons should be fine to learn the basics.

How do you get there?

One can buy an annual pass online or buy a pass for each car once you get there. If the plan is to stay for a week then an annual pass will be cheaper. Park the car at the ski tube and ride the train up the mountain. Carrying snow chain boots that can be hired is advisable and do a practice at home itself. Additionally, ensure that the car tires are in great condition. 

When should you plan to go there?

The ski season officially starts during the Queen’s birthday long weekend that falls in June. One can think of planning the trip during midyear break of school going kids. There are a number of activities planned for kids. The snow condition may not be at its best; however, with the use of snowmaking machines, there are no problems for ski fields.

Accommodation facilities

There are a number of Falls Creek budget accommodations available. You can consider booking them in advance to avoid last minute hassle. Many of them include lift passes, equipment on hire, lessons, and practice sessions that will enable you to save a lot of money and time. Look for smaller and all-inclusive accommodations if you are a smaller family.
