Mt. Stirling Alpine Resort is one of six Alpine Resorts in Victoria. These Resorts are all sited on crown land and managed by separate Management Boards appointed by Government. In 2007 the Mt.Buller and Mt.Stirling Alpine Resorts were combined under joint management. Mt.Stirling has been witness to many uses over the past decades, providing a source of food and cultural significance to the early aboriginal communities, summer pasture for alpine grazing, a source of timber for forestry operations and a place for recreation.
