Dog Permits

Victoria’s alpine regions are amongst the most biodiverse regions in Australia. Domestic animals post a risk to our native wildlife and sensitive alpine environment. 

The RMB manages a dog permit system to restrict the number of dogs allowed into the resort to minimise these environmental impacts.

No other domestic animal (including cats) are permitted in the resort.

Dog Permit Applications

  • Year-round dog permits are offered to year-round residents, employees, property or business owners. Year-round dog permits are issued annually and are valid from 1 January to 31 December each year.
  • Summer permits are available for temporary residents of Mt Hotham and apply only outside of the declared winter season. 
  • Permits are not issued for one-off visits within the resort.
  • A permit is not required for registered guide dogs, assistance dogs or people transporting a dog through the Resort.

The RMB Dog Permit Policy is currently under review for 2021.
