Dinner Plain is the home of fast-paced family fun in season 2020. For the first time ever, Tobogganing will be the star attraction on Dinner Plain’s Cobungra Flat Slope. At 75m long and 40m wide, this is the biggest and longest toboggan slope in Australia!

We’ve invested in the fun, not just to offer the biggest tobogganing around, but the best too. With full snowmaking and grooming, we’ll be keeping the slope looking pristine as deep into the season as possible.

Some things will be the same, but some will be different too. Our operating plans mean walk-up access to tobogganing without pre-booking, and of course participating for free, but there will also be capacity limits applied. With sound management and the ability to create two separately enclosed spaces in peak times, we’re confident we can cater to demand.


The Cobungra Flat slope is open for Tobogganing from 10:00am to 4:00pm daily throughout the snow season. Due to COVID-19 requirements, the slope is fenced and managed activity and entry will be managed by staff to strict capacity limits.

To allow for access to the most people, visitors will be permitted entry for a 60 minute timed session as below. There are no pre-bookings for sessions, this activity is for walk-up access only. Entry is strictly permitted only for those who register their details for contact tracing.

Sessions - 9:00-10:00am | 10:00-11:00am | 11:00am-12:00pm | 12:00-1:00pm | 1:00pm-2:00pm | 2:00-3:00pm | 3:00-4:00pm
