9 Quirky Reasons to Visit Mt Mawson Ski Resort

Australia’s smallest ski resort, Mt Mawson in Tasmania is a little different. We show you why.

To ride the hill, clip your hanging dangle to a rope taking care not not tangle your dangle and be dragged through wooden fences into a revolving pulley.

3.  Walk up a mountain

A 30 minute walk from the car park. No bus, no chairlift, just great views and wildlife. But you can ski down!
