HOTHAM AIRPORT

Why drive when you could fly? Mt Hotham boasts Australia’s highest fully operational commercial aerodrome for commercial and private or charter flights. Hotham is accessible from airports in both Victoria and NSW, with an approximate flight time of 45 minutes from Lilydale, Essendon, or Moorabbin airports, 30 minutes from Albury and Canberra, and 50 minutes from Sydney.

Hotham Airport provides an experience unique among Australian airports, allowing visitors to arrive by charter or personal flights. Imagine the thrill of flying over Australia's magnificent high country, landing in Victoria's highest alpine resort, and being on the slopes within half an hour of landing.
