There are two toboggan runs. Toboggans will not be available for hire from the Parks Victoria this year due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
Visitors are advised to hire them from nearby Erica or Rawson. Alternatively, if you intend to bring your own toboggan, remember that only plastic moulded toboggans are allowed on the runs.
Snowshoeing is permitted on the ski trail network. Snow shoes are either BYO or hire from suppliers. There is a short Winter Walking Track leading to a lookout that starts at the St Gwinear carpark and extends approximately 600m (1.2km return).
Cross country skiing
Mount St Gwinear, located on the Baw Baw Plateau, offers 12km of cross country trails, with the first Main Trail departing from the Mount St Gwinear car park. There is a loop that visitors can undertake accessing 5 trails. These trails are called Cascades Trail, Saints Trail, Tullicoutty Trail and Gwinear Trail. There is an access point on the Saints Trail at Phillack Saddle to link onto a cross country ski trail (Tanjil) for those accessing the Baw Baw Resort Alpine Village.
Dispersed camping is permitted on the Baw Baw Plateau except in the Reference Area Zone and within 20 metres of streams and alpine bogs.
Shelter facilities including the warm room and change room will be closed.
This is a basic visitor site so we are encouraging all visitors to be self-sufficient.
A food van offering a limited range will operate in peak periods. They will adhere to strict hygiene measures and contactless payment system.
If the St Gwinear car park is full, delay your visit. Do not join vehicle queues or park illegally.
