Elope, elope in the snow,

Mt Hotham

Mount Hotham is a mountain in the Victorian Alps of the Great Dividing Range about 4.5 hours by car from Melbourne or 7.5 hours from Sydney or a short private flight from Melbourne or Sydney. Hotham is one of Australia’s highest alpine towns and it is a pretty stunning location for an elopement.

There are numerous venues to choose from as well as a variety of locations to have your elopement ceremony. I would probably avoid the middle of ski season or in school holidays as it is an extremely popular destination 

An elopement here is all about the epic mountain landscapes. The scenery is stunning. This beautiful mountain location mixed with some luxury facilities makes Mount Hotham an ideal elopement destination.
