Dinner Experience

Snowshoe to fondue – A memorable evening in the snow!

Embark on a snowshoe tour at sunset to our hidden eco-village and indulge in a delicious French cheese fondue dinner!

The experience starts with an evening snowshoe walk through the mystic snow gums, to encapsulate a sense of remoteness and immerse oneself in the Australian alpine environment.

Leaving at sunset from the wire plain shelter, the walk will weave its way to a hidden eco-village, where you’ll enjoy a delicious heart warming glass of Glühwein outside by the fire.
You will then be invited into the Central tipi with a fireplace, where you will learn the secrets to making a traditional and mouth-watering French fondue, with cheese imported for the occasion from French Alpine farms.
