Mount Beauty is the closest town to Falls Creek and the best place to hire chains. Falls Creek Coach Service has chains for hire and gives lesson fitting them. For current pricing; Chain Hire.

Note: All vehicles MUST carry chains. It is a requirement by law. Failing to do so may incur a fine.


Falls Creek does not have a fuel station. Mt Beauty, located approximately 33kms at the bottom of the mountain, is the closest fuel stop and all drivers should fill their vehicle up before making their way up the mountain. Mt Beauty fuel stations are open from 7am–7pm during the snow season 7 days a week.

In winter, diesel vehicles should fill up with Alpine Diesel from Mt Beauty or other local suppliers to ensure their vehicle works correctly in the cold conditions.


From Mount Beauty head along the Bogong High Plains (BHP) Road to Falls Creek (30kms). Once you reach the Village of Falls Creek, take the first right, Falls Creek Road, then take the third left, Sitzmark Street. Astra is located approx 150m on the right.

Falls Creek is a 4.5 hour drive (356km) from Melbourne (closest international airport) or 1.5hr drive from Albury (closest regional airport). Falls Creek is a day’s drive from Sydney (690km).
