With Summer officially only a few weeks away now, and travel restrictions to Regional Vitoria lifted, the conversation has quickly turned to "What's on this summer at Falls Creek"? Well, there's lots on!
Kicking things off is the 2021 Ignition MTB Festival from November 19 through to 21, which is also the same weekend that Falls Creek officially opens all the mountain bike trails for the season.The Falls Creek MTB Park offers 40km of trails to explore and and there are shuttles running throughout the summer to keep you heading downhill for longer.
Trails, Tales and Tucker occurs on selected dates between November until April. If you're up for a three kilometre walk along the Wallace’s Heritage Trail while listening to the stories of the characters, the myths and legends and how they have shaped the Bogong High Plains, then this will be right up your alley.
Once School Holidays commence, the Village will once again come to life with lots of kids activities and a chance for everyone to enjoy cycling, water sports, hiking and trail walking or just some peace and quite in the beautiful alpine surrounds.
Kicking off February is the Victorian Enduro Tour on 5-6 February 2022, which sees the village set as the stage for mountain bikers to show off their skills and speed through the village and on the high plains.
Something new for Falls Creek this summer will be the FEASTIVAL Falls Creek event, taking place on 18-20 February 2022. This event has been described as a lively mix of music, art, comedy and great food so keep an eye out on Falls Creek socials and their website as more details are released in due course. As part of FEASTIVAL, FCRM will be offering an 8-hour, free live music event in Slalom Plaza. This will showcase a collection of Australian artists, from major, international-touring headline acts, to local homegrown artists.
Probably the biggest alpine cycling event each Summer is the Peaks Challenge event, which will be held on (lucky) 13 March, 2022. With the Lodge all but full for this weekend, it's a great weekend for the Club and for Falls Creek alike.
Not to forget everyone's favourite event, the Falls Creek Long Lunch will be held on Friday 18 March. This event is a highlight on the Falls Creek social calendar, so to avoid disappointment make sure you book early if you want to attend.
To finish off the official events for Summer season is the Easter Festival which is always a favourite for kids and adults alike. With usually great weather and a fun atmosphere, Easter at Falls Creek is always a hit, so get in early and organise a group for next year.
What ever you choose to do at Falls Creek this summer, have a great time and remember to recommend our Lodge to your friends and family for somewhere to stay.
