Regarded as one of Falls Creek’s most popular ski lodges, you’ll find it hard to beat our famous hospitality, amazing food and competitive prices.
Ripparoo underwent a major renovation pre-winter 2016, whilst retaining the original charm and atmosphere of a true alpine ski lodge. We specialise in very friendly, warm and inviting hospitality in a delightfully refreshed environment with (we are told) some of the best food to be found anywhere in Falls Creek.
Our 18 room lodge is in a prime ski-in ski-out setting and offers breathtaking views of the Bogong Ranges. Only 200m from both Halleys Comet Chairlift & Gully Chair Lift makes it close enough to ski ‘home’ for lunch. Ripparoo has a casual homeliness but with an attention to detail that will surprise you! All guest rooms at Ripparoo have linen and towels supplied, ensuites & individually controlled Nobo heating.
Play pool in our recreational mezzanine – or visit our TV room and choose from the complimentary DVD library and Foxtel. Enjoy free WiFi throughout the lodge.
Our guest laundry provides a coin slot washing machine & tumbler dryer. Laundry detergent, iron & ironing board are also all available with our compliments.
In high season your daily tariff includes a continental buffet breakfast, hot breakfast of the day, afternoon tea, and a gourmet three course dinner (excluding Friday night). In value season (June & September) your tariff includes a continental buffet breakfast and a two course evening meal (excluding Friday night). 24 hour tea (including herbal) and coffee (including plunge, decaf) are available at the servery. We provide a sandwich press, microwave and toaster at lunchtime. Our communal guest fridges provide space for lunch items and drinks.
Children (3 -14yrs) are served dinner at the special earlier sitting of 6pm – all healthy, home-cooked fare. Should your child wish to join you for the adult dinner, student rates will apply. Children are not permitted in the dining room after 7pm.
Our BYO restaurant is exclusive to house guests, though space permitting, you may be able to invite friends for dinner. With sufficient notice, our chef, Alistair Matthews, is happy to accommodate special dietary requirements.
