If you don't want to pay resort entry, and I'm guessing you don't want to march your kids up long steep spurs (Feathertop or Bogong), then off the top of my head, in the Melbourne area:
Lake Mountain seems to have an artificial snow toboggan run, which means you don't need to worry about if it's snowed recently or not, and doesn't appear to have entry fees. https://www.lakemountainresort.com.au/trail-conditions/
If it has snowed down below 1200m, then Mt Donna Buang near Warburton, is a possibility and I've taken the kids there several times (usually in July/August) after a dump and we've had a great time. https://www.warburtoninfo.com/mount-don ... eport.html
A bit further out, you can check out Mt St Gwinear on the Baw Baw plateau. https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/places-to- ... st-gwinear
If you're fine with paying resort entry, then you'll probably have no issue with finding snow at Buller/Stirling, Baw Baw, Hotham, Falls Creek but all are a bit of a drive from Melbourne.

Lake Mountain has a resort entry charge - it's actually one of the highest out of all of those at $59 for a vehicle with 8 or fewer seats.
