Marouka is an authentic ski club lodge located at Mt Hotham in northeastern Victoria, Australia.
Top reasons to come and stay:
1. easy access from the main road
2. family-friendly and comfortable
3. informal and inexpensive.
From Membership Secretary Jillian, we have the Marouka 2017 Associate Membership Application Form and cover letter available for download. Also, and especially for non-digital natives, we have the Marouka March 2017 Newsletter (mailed to non-email holders). Click those links, or find them under Available Documents in the left sidebar of our Marouka Lodge website.
The new roof is finally on with good insulation to keep us toasty warm. Bring on winter!
The priority booking period for Foundation Members opens 01 March. Associate Members may book starting 01 April, with public opening following on 15 April.
Note that we have reversed the upstairs rooms. Room 7 will become the bunk room where beds are booked individually. Room 8 will become the premium room for a couple, more removed from lounge-room noise.

Congratulations to our Belinda Knight, one of three national winners of the 2016 Commonwealth Bank Not-for-Profit Treasurers' Award!
According to the sponsor, the winners identified "ideas around recruiting and retaining treasurers, keeping treasurers up-to-date and sharing changes which they implemented to make things easier for their organisation based on challenges they had experienced."
The award is especially significant considering there were over 2000 submissions recognising the commitment of community treasurers around the country.
Belinda attended a ceremony in Sydney on 20 September where she received a cash award on behalf of the club.
As Treasurer, Belinda "focuses on ensuring that the lodge is run sustainably and provides an accessible, comfortable and friendly environment at an economical price to members and the broader public."
"This award reinforces to me that I am a member of a passionate, supportive and community based club that provides great value to its members."
Thanks to excellent run grooming and snowmaking, the snow will persist well into September. There are beds available at Marouka!
