Alpine National Park
moderateYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow Star(44)
Length: 22.4 km • Est. 7 h 32 m
This is a great hike that will take roughly 7-8 hours to summit Victoria's second highest mountain at 1,922m. It gains a great deal of altitude but is mostly moderate until the last bit which is steep and rocky. Begin at the carpark of Diamantina Hut, descend into the Big Dipper, pass through open snow grass, low shrubs and snow gum woodlands before reaching the rocky bluffs. Every hundred or so metres of elevation gain the vegetation changes toward the end summit well above the tree line with great views over the Bogong High Plains. Situated within the Alpine National Park, this region has a long cultural history as a place for large gatherings in warmer seasons by Indigenous Australians, with a rich spiritual association. If you go in winter/spring there may still be snow on the ground. It is mostly exposed with no shade so bring a hat and sunscreen!Show more

Mount Bogong used to be the meeting spot for Indigenous groups to meet from all over Victoria in summer. Each year, groups would come together for large corroborees at the base of the mountain, settle disputes, sort out partnerships, do some trade and get permission from the Yiamathong people to climb to the summit. They’d then all climb up together and camp just below the tree line, having Bogong moth feasts and waiting for the summer heat to pass. Commence the summit of Victoria's highest peak at 1,986m at the Mountain Creek Campsite. The entirety of the trail has rugged terrain, starting with the Staircase track on the way up and on the return via Eskdale Spur Track.Show more

A beautiful walk along the Tali Karng Trail all the way to the Lake. Beautiful varying scenery all the way. Camping available at around the 8km mark. It is quite a strenuous walk back up the hill after you have visited the lake.Show more

The Great Alpine Road is an iconic drive of Victoria in the high alpine regions of the Great Dividing Range. The road stretches from Wangaratta to Metung on Daungwurrung and Kurnai land, and takes a minimum of 5 hours to drive in full. The paved road can be accessed year-round, where each season paints the landscape in different colours, with white snow capped peaks in winter, to meadows of vibrant wildflowers blooming through spring. Expect to see diverse landscapes of Eastern Victoria as you pass through Alpine National Park and Mount Buffalo National Park, with picturesque mountain ranges, deep valleys, lush forests, rolling vineyard hills, and eventually out to the Gippsland Lakes which meet with the sea. The road can get bendy in sections, be sure to follow road signage and be prepared for road conditions especially in winter when snow chains might be required. If you drive the full length a good itinerary is to divide the drive into three sections with stops in Bright and Omeo, and in either direction.Show more

A fresh hike up to the Vallejo Gantner Hut is one known by hikers as a great overnighter or ideal spot to break before the return. This high-country hut was architect-designed in 1970-71 in memory of Vallejo Gantner and is intended for use by all comers. This hut is of architectural, historical and social significance to Victoria, as it is one of only three architecturally designed huts in the Victoria's high country, and for its continued significance to a large number of bushwalkers and visitors as a hut associated with the long history of bushwalking in Victoria.Show more

This is a great overnight hike. The first 2km section of this trail is very steep and the remainder to Bluff Hut campsite is gently undulating. It has breathtaking views at every point. The campground is a few hundred metres from Bluff Hut with great views to Mt Buller and Mt Stirling. The completion of the circuit is along a 4WD track. It starts with a gentle walk downhill then a pinch uphill back to the carpark.Show more
