What’s new at Mt Stirling in 2019 MT STIRLING JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER EVERY YEAR! With improvements around the resort to enhance the visitor experience, there is something for everyone at Mt Stirling. DON’T WASTE MT STIRLING INITIATIVE MT STIRLING HYDRO THE MOUNTAIN AT YOUR FINGERTIPS Have you spotted Larry the Lyrebird whilst visiting Telephone Box Junction at Mt Stirling? He is unique in that he is made entirely out of rubbish collected from the entry of Mt Stirling, made by students from Lauriston Girls’ School (Howqua). The sculpture is part of a project to reduce litter by getting visitors to sort and remove their own waste. It builds on the ethic of ‘carry in carry out’ and ‘leave no trace’. Overnight guests and groups are able to pick up their own portable waste kit from Stirling Ski Patrol at Telephone Box Junction. After more than a ten year absence (caused by the Great Alpine Fires of 2006–07), the micro-hydroelectric facility was re-installed at Mt Stirling to provide a renewable energy supply to the visitor facilities at Telephone Box Junction (TBJ). Now in its second year of operation, Mt Stirling and her visitors can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy the peace and quiet and lack of fumes within the Resort not having to rely on a diesel-powered generator for its electricity needs. Thanks to a government environmental grant and hard work from the Resort Management Board, Mt Stirling is happily now cleaner and greener! New for 2019, our mobile-friendly website will make planning ahead and booking resort entry and parking even easier. Book online in advance to save big!
