What about the blog?

We have retired the blog as a separate way of communicating with members. Old news can still be be found at

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.

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.

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.

There are still vacancies at the lodge, so check out the booking system and make the best of this September.
