Porters Accommodation Info

Club fields package tour
Most people who visit the Porters Ski Field tend to stay off-mountain to enable flexibility in their itinerary to chase the best conditions at the various nearby club fields such as Craigieburn, Broken River, Mt Cheeseman, Mt Olympus and Temple Basin.

Porters Accommodation On-Mountain

There is one Porters accommodation option on-mountain, the Porters Alpine Lodge, which is located 5 minutes from the lift base half way down the access road. It is a rustic member-run lodge available to the public offering inexpensive bunk-style rooms and shared facilities along with dinner and breakfast for each day of your stay.

Off-Mountain Lodging

The closest option (off the mountain) for accommodation is Flock Hill lodge (20 mins drive). Located in a beautiful setting on a working farm, the lodge offers very reasonably priced motel and cottage units, and backpacker accommodation. It is very inexpensive and provides a variety of accommodation options.

Flock hill Lodge, Craigieburn Flockhill Lodge & Backpackers $-$$
Located 20 mins from Porters, it offers self-cater 2, 3 & 4 br cottages & backpacker (in shearers quarters) style accommodation on a magnificent working farm. It also has a nice restaurant & bar on site.

Springfield Accommodation (30 min drive in good conditions)

Slightly further afield is the rural town of Springfield that was put on the map by a Simpson’s doughnut (or donut as Homer would spell it). Thankfully this town doesn't have too much in common with the Springfield town featured in the Simpsons cartoon.

A very nice little motel (more like a bnb) is the Springfield Lodge & Motel.
