Booking System - What's New

We've made a few changes to how bookings work this year, reflecting changes in booking demand and also to improve how the system works

Victorian June/July School Holidays

  • There are no longer special conditions for Victioran June/July school holidays. Book for this period as you would for any other winter period


  • The waitlist facility has been very popular with members wishing to make weekend bookings. We want to make this even more effective by eliminating wasted opportunities for short bookings.
  • Waitlisting requests for bookings weekends and other non-standard bookings can be submitted after 18 March.
  • Occasionally people made waitlist requests but did not require them when the time came to approve the booking. By the time it was clear that the booking was not required, it was sometimes too late for someone else to take up the opportunity.
  • Now, if you make a waitlist request, you will be sent an email approx 1 week before the opening date for the booking. You will be asked to confirm within 2 days that you still want it. If you do not respond promptly, the waitlist request will lapse. 
  • Once approved, immediate payment for the booking is required or it will lapse. 
  • See the full waitlist policy

Payment must be made promptly

  • Some members have been quite slow to pay for bookings. In some cases bookings were cancelled very late, having never been paid for. 
  • The booking officer will now cancel bookings not paid for in the appropriate time. This is within 7 days for normal bookings and 1 day for approved waitlist requests.

Late season discount

  • Stay at the lodge from Fri 25 September to end of season (Victorian September/OctoberSchool Holidays) for a special low rate, approx 17% lower than winter off-peak rates.

Booking into other AAC lodges

  • You can now logon on to Anton and Dinner Plain booking systems using your AAC Falls Creek logon credentials. Hopefully Perisher will join in soon.

Tighter enforcement of booking priority

  • The long-standing booking rules state that only bookings for members open on 1 February. Bookings for family of members must wait till 8 March and other guests till 15 March. Bookings for members of other AAC lodges open on 1 March. 
  • To improve the enforcement of this rule, on any night a member can only be booked into one bed in their own name.
  • You can use the comment section of a booking to tell the booking officer if you intend booking for others as well.

Room 7

  • At the time of writing, we are hoping to convert Room 7 to a twin, like room 12. The bushfires affected building schedules and it is not yet clear if the conversion can be done this summer. In the meantime, Room 7 is shown as a twin in the booking system to avoid the risk of overbooking.


  • The booking information sheet has been replaced by web-based information. You can read this online or download it as a PDF, or just download selected sections. The Falls Creek specific information is also provided at .
  • The booking system user guide is being updated to reflect these changes. This may not be complete by opening of bookings

Summer Cleaning

Unfortunately sometimes our summer visitors do not pay sufficient attention to cleaning.

While Andrew & Myra clean meticulously in ski season, managers are not required to clean in summer. We rely on members and guests to leave the lodge in a clean and tidy condition.

The committee has decided to emphasise the need to clean thorougthly and to introduce a fee if this has been negleected.

So to clear what is expected in "green season":

  • You must clean your room and ensuite before departure.
  • You must also cooperate with other guests to clean the kitchen and all common areas used.
  • Cleaning must be to at least the standard that you would hope for when coming into accommodation.
  • Cleaning kits with cloths and chemicals should be collected from the laundry and returned there later.
  • Failure to adequately clean may result in a cleaning fee of up to $200 per room.

 (This does not apply to Peaks Challenge weekend, when cleaning services are provided by the manager)

Early Bird Resort Entry Season Passes still available

With bushfires effecting both staff and mountain lovers, the closing date for early bird passes has been extended.

Make an initial payment of $99 by 12 February and the balance of $276 on 18 March for a total of $375.

Christmas in July

24th July is Christmas Eve in July. Why not bring some Christmas fare or santa hats if you are coming to the lodge that week?

There will be decorations & gluehwein - the rest of the festive cheer is up to you

Enjoy a summer break without the minimum fee - UPDATED

Unfortunately some of the  minimum fee free opportunities were lost due to the bushfires. To make upfor this, nominimum fees will apply for the rest of the green season (to end April 2020).

Usually in summer the club needs to apply a minimum fee of $300 to cover the costs of opening and closing the lodge. This can be an obstacle for small groups wanting short stays. For the last few years we have waived the fee at popular times to encourage members and guests to enjoy Falls Creek in "green" season. For this summer, the following nights will not attract the minimum fee.

Lodge No Smoking rule

The club has a long standing policy of no smoking indoors, although smoking has been permitted on the balcony outside the dining room. The committee has received a number of complaints about smoking on the balcony and requests to no longer allow it. After due consideration, the committee decided that it was appropriate to extend the smoking ban to all areas of the lodge, effective immediately.

Change to club age limit for children

The committee has decided to increase the age limit for child rates to 18.

  • Children are eligible for child accommodation rates at the lodge for an extra year. 
  • Junior members will not need to pay the intermediate membership instalment until they turn 18, nor pay the intermediate rate for annual subscriptions till then. 
  • The higher age limit will also mean on becoming intermediate members, they will be able to stay at the lodge without parental supervision.

Increase in joining fees

The Non-Refundable Joining Fee has not been increased for many years. We are now in a situation where there is more demand for new memberships than members wishing to sell debentures. Accordingly the committee has decided to increase the NRJF to $3000 + GST. The debenture cost remains at $4000.

The instalment amounts for juniors/intermediates have been reviewed accordingly. Existing junior and intermediate members will not be affected by the increase. The increase in the initial fee for new juniors is modest, with the bulk of the increase being applied at the intermediate stage.

The threshold age for intermediate memberships will increase from 17 to 18. This will also be matched by adult accommodation rates beginning at 18 years of age.
