Victoria's High Country

The High Country in north-east Victoria is a special place with scenic alpine landscapes, adventurous outdoor activities, gourmet food and wine and a fascinating heritage of bushrangers and gold.

There's indulgence aplenty in the High Country's delectable cool-climate wines and meals prepared by passionate local chefs in the gourmet villages of Beechworth and Milawa, Bright and King Valley. The Muscat Trail is perfect for a leisurely cycle between Rutherglen's wineries.

Easily accessible from Melbourne, the High Country is home to Victoria's best snowfields. Mount Buller, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek are renowned for their excellent skiing, snowboarding and accommodation options.

When the snow disappears, skis are swapped for four-wheel drives, mountain bikes, horses and hiking boots. Rock climbing, river rafting and fabulous freshwater fishing also beckon.

The region's fascinating gold rush and bushranger heritage can be uncovered in historic towns and villages like Beechworth and Glenrowan, site of the last stand of Australia's most famous bushranger, Ned Kelly.

The Great Alpine Road is one of Australia's great touring routes, winding between Wangaratta, Bairnsdale and Gippsland, showcasing stunning heritage towns and the alpine villages that are crowned in pristine white during winter and cloaked with wildflowers in summer.
