The iconic Zirkys hotel, bar and restaurant is for sale at Hotham

If you ski or snowboard in Australia then you’ve heard of Peter “Zirky” Zirknitzer, famous Austrian ski instructor turned hospitality entrepreneur and the name behind the impressive Zirky’s hotel, bar and restaurant.

The Zirky family have put Hotham’s premier ski-in ski-out après bar and hotel on the market after fifty years of building the iconic property from a snack bar to the most coveted destination in Hotham.

Yes, you read that right, Zirky’s could be yours.

The award winning Euro style property has a head lease until 2043 and boasts 1832 square metres of serious location, location, location. Perched on the top of Australia’s sweetest alpine village.

Choose to keep the hotel, retail and hospitality venues as is or develop with further apartments. Either way, you’ll be king or queen of your snow land.

What you get

Management rights to 28 apartments from one to six bedrooms, many with majestic mountain views across the range; a ski hire and sport retail shop; licensed bar and bistro with the best slope side deck going; restaurant, cafe and wine store; reception and common areas; hotel rooms and employee accommodation and manager’s studio.

Best of all? You get the keys to the private three bedroom, two bathroom apartment that the Zirky family have personally called home.

All accessed by Mount Hotham’s own jet airport servicing Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra, or a mere four hour drive to Melbourne or two hours to Albury.

Make it yours

You’ll need to register your interest before 4pm on October 29 this year if you want to make it yours.

Oh, and you’ll need $4 million too. Not a bad price for a slice of Hotham history in a prime location.
