Mount Stirling is a mountain in the Victorian Alps of the Great Dividing Range, located in the Hume region of Victoria, Australia. The mountain has an elevation of 1,747–1,749 metres (5,732–5,738 ft) above sea level.
Mount Stirling is also an abbreviation of the Mount Stirling Alpine Resort, a cross-country and backcountry ski resort located on the slopes of the mountain and situated approximately 230 kilometres (140 mi) from Melbourne. The Mount Stirling ski resort is a popular location for beginner backcountry skiers and snowboarders due to its distance from Melbourne and proximity to the Mount Buller Alpine Resort. As at the 2011 census, the area had a population of 36.
The Mount Stirling Alpine Resort is contained within an 2,820-hectare (7,000-acre) unincorporated area under the direct administration of the government of Victoria, and is surrounded by the Shire of Mansfield.

Mount Stirling was named in honour of James Stirling, a surveyor and later, the Victorian Government Geologist.

  • Great place for the ski and snow hike, for the snow hike the snow boots is required, you can rent them from their as well.
  • A brilliant couple of days skiing, tobogganing and having fun in the snow, without any of the Buller crowds. Panda and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Very affordable too. Perfect!
