About Marouka Ski Club

The lodge is incorporated in Victoria (“Hotham Marouka Ski Club Inc.”) as an association with a Committee that oversees it operation and development. The Committee is elected by the club’s foundation membership at the Annual General Meeting.


Marouka Ski Club established in 1968. The Marouka Lodge is located at Mt Hotham, an alpine resort in north eastern Victoria, Australia. It takes about 4½ hours to drive from Melbourne.

Marouka Lodge is ideally situated just off the main road next to the Jack Frost bus stop. Marouka is an open family-oriented membership club without institutional affiliation. The lodge is open all winter season with a resident manager  and can be available outside the ski season by arrangement with the booking officer.

In winter, visitors come to ski and snowboard in the resort, and to cross-country ski on a network of groomed tracks and open backcountry. Snowshoeing is increasing in popularity..

In summer, the resort and its surrounding areas attract bushwalkers, cyclists and 4WD enthusiasts. There are many geocaches to find. It is also a brilliant place to just get away to.

Club Structure

There are basically three classes of membership, “Foundation” members, “Associate” members  and “Corporate” members. Non-Members (Public Guests) are welcome.

Foundation Members

“Foundation” members information is coming soon, please be patient.

Associate Members

“Associate“ members information is coming soon, please be patient.

Corporate Members

“Corporate“ members information is coming soon, please be patient.

Lodge Management

A live in  “lodge manager” is appointed during the ski season and he/she is responsible to the committee. More information is coming soon, please be patient.

Members and Guests are requested to share daily duties that are rostered on a room by room basis. These tasks are simple (e.g. vacuum the hallway), take little time and mean that the common areas of the lodge are kept presentable for everyone’s enjoyment.  Upon completion of your stay, it is expected that you leave your room clean and tidy.

As a consideration to other guests, it is asked that common areas be left tidy after use, the “no smoking” rules are observed, there is no eating in the bedrooms, and noise is kept to a reasonable level, particularly late at night and early in the morning.

Non-paying guests may visit you in the common areas but are not permitted to stay overnight.
