Did you know? If you travel to an Alpine resort during the declared snow season, you are required to carry snow chains. Diamond-style chains are required when driving to Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort. For all your snow gear, including clothing, equipment & chain hire, call in and see the team at Erica Ski & Chain Hire.

There's plenty to see and do in and around Erica.

What will your adventure include?

When it's warm...

After a cracker of a day exploring the region, whether you've been hiking, bushwalking, 4WDing, dirt biking, mountain biking, cycling the peaks, fishing, or panning for gold, call in to the Erica Hotel for a cold one to quench that explorers thirst and grab a bite to satisfy your appetite.

Whether you want to sit and relax on the deck, out the front or at the bar, we've got you covered; or if you'd prefer to grab & go, check out the range in our bottleshop.


When it's cool...

After a day of adventures in the snow, whether you've been skiing at Mt Baw Baw or tobogganing at Mt Saint Gwinear, or a long day of picture taking & memory making along the Autumn Photography Trail, come and warm yourself by the open fireplace, and enjoy the cozy, friendly atmosphere as you sip on a glass of pinot or cab sauv, and for that added warmth, tuck into one of our popular Hot Rock meals, or a parma straight from under the grill.
