Stylish Getaway to Mt Buller

I am a big fan of getting away for the weekend, and absolutely love exploring regional Victoria. I love how you can travel for an hour or two out of the city, and find yourself in a completely different climate and surrounds!

So when BMW Melbourne offered me the chance to experience the last weekend of snow at Mt Buller a couple of weeks back on an epic road trip in a new X3, I jumped at the chance!

Would you believe that I’d never been to the snow? I consider myself a little bit of a beach bunny, and the thought of hanging out with 3 year olds who can ski like world champs while I try to master the “pizza and fry” was a little daunting.

The thought of cruising up in a brand, spankin’ new BMW X3 certainly eased my fears however!

The X3 was the perfect road trip partner. Sleek, sporty and a dream to drive, it was the perfect size for my little family (and for all the mama’s out there, it easily accommodated a pram and babyseat, and 8 tonnes of luggage travelling with a toddler entails). The elevated seating position was also fab – I felt like the queen of the road!

I also loved being able to connect my phone and have my music and contacts instantly displayed with BMW ConnectedDrive. The HeadsUp display was another one of my favourite features – your speed and SatNav directions are displayed on the windscreen so you can keep your eyes on the road at all time. Love it!

And I can’t forget the special wheels that BMW Melbourne provided for Annabel – her very own “BMW” and “Driver”. Too cute!

We stayed at The Mt Buller Chalet and loved the Apres Bar for snacks and coffee, and a cheeky lunch!

Mt Buller was absolutely stunning and we can’t wait to head back next Winter.

And finally, a huge thanks to BMW Melbourne for getting me on the road for this amazing road trip. if you’d love to drive an X3 as much as I did, head in and speak to the amazing team at BMW Melbourne.
