resort entry tax on cars to be cut by 50% for final week

Australian alpine resorts are unique internationally with their imposition of resort entry taxes. In addition to the resort entry tax on overnight car parking at Falls Creek, there is also a resort entry tax of $10 per adult / $5 per child imposed on buses entering the resort. A family comprising two adults and two children staying in Mt Beauty and travelling daily to Falls Creek by bus (with no parking) would pay $30 resort entry tax per day, while the owner of a car parked overnight at the resort would normally pay $31 resort entry tax per day.

As the 2009 winter season draws to a close, the Falls Creek resort entry tax for cars will be reduced, with a 50% discount to $15.50 on daily rates from Sunday 20 September. The resort entry tax imposed on bus passengers will remain unchanged, making that form of transport to Falls Creek less attractive during the final week of ski lift operations.
