Shannon Exelby

General Manager of Astra Falls Creek

“I was raised on a cattle and cropping farm in country Queensland.  I’ve spent a lot of my life exploring Australia and beyond, working and living in many beautiful locations. Astra Falls Creek rivals the best in the world.”

“It’s a slice of Europe nestled in the Victorian Alps. Seamlessly intertwining world class luxury and sophistication with the intimacy and charm of a small community, complete with Rosy’s personal touch with her ever growing cushion collection from ski cities across the globe.”

Shannon Exelby has been a leader and innovator in the tourism industry for two decades, managing some of Australia’s most iconic hotels and resorts. 

“Ive always loved the ocean and surfing. In 2002 I traded my surfboard for a snowboard when I moved to Canada to work and Ski Whistler Blackcomb. It was supposed to be a short term adventure, but after meeting a local Canadian girl who I would later marry -ski fields, snow storms and red wine around a fireplace became a permanent fixture in my life.”

“We now have 4 children and they are every bit the snow bunny their mother is. So Astra Falls Creek is a wonderful community for us to be a part of.”

“Astra Falls Creek is like no other ski accomodation in Australia. Our guests hail from all corners of the globe and it is an annual pilgrimage for many.”

“For me, the perfect holiday is as much about the people as it is the location. I am passionate about every guest having the best experience possible.  It’s about bringing the magic of the surrounds into the guest experience and enjoying their sense of discovery.”

If winter puts a smile on your face, it’s something you had in common with the late, great Warren Miller.

The warm, witty, mildly eccentric godfather of the ski-and-ride film was the man who got us started on this long, crazy ride. Don’t miss Macpac presents  Warren Miller’s;  Face of Winter, the 69th instalment from Warren Miller Entertainment.

Premiered in Melbourne on the 15th of May and then arriving tonight in Sydney on the 22nd of May screening until the 26th of May, the tour will travel along the East Coast of Australia then moving to SA, WA, TAS & N.T. There are amazing prizes up for grabs including trips to Japan, Canada, Switzerland, Heliskiing, skis, outerwear and a Deluxe Studio apartment at Astra!

Some of the Astra family will be at the screenings so please say hello! We look forward to meeting you.
