About Us

Feathertop Chalet is owned and operated by a Melbourne based youth organisation and prides itself in creating life-enriching adventures and providing venues in which life long memories can be made.

Feathertop Chalet is committed to safeguarding children and young people in our care.

Feathertop Chalet’s staff include local professionals, outdoor educators and dedicated long-serving members of the Harrietville community.

At Feathertop Chalet we accommodate our guests over our 3 separate lodges which each sleep just over 95 people and are most suited to group accommodation.

Our conference center, which can seat 200, is ideal for workshops, training sessions and conferences. Our other facilities include an indoor sports hall and swimming pool, beach volleyball, tennis courts and mini-golf course. Each Lodge also has a common area that can comfortably seat 20 or more people. All of our rooms, which sleep between 4-12 people, have their own ensuite. We can cater for all groups in our dining room and smaller groups are welcome to use the kitchen facilities in the lodges to self-cater. Onsite we have a fantastic range of adventure activities including High Ropes elements which cater for young and old and compliment our alpine environment.
