Breathe in the pure alpine air of the High Country and experience one of Australia's rarest environments. When the snow melts, the alpine wildflowers bloom, decorating the trails that wind through the snow gums out to breathtaking mountain vistas.


There is a wide variety of walks in Dinner Plain, the Alpine National Park and Hotham Resort. The bush walking season lasts from early November until late April. The area is usually snow covered or quite wet during winter and early spring.

You are adventuring in an Alpine environment so be prepared! Weather conditions can change very quickly and snowfalls and blizzards can be experienced any time of the year.

Be prepared with:

  • Wind and waterproof jackets
  • Warm clothing
  • Hat & gloves
  • Sturdy footwear
  • Map, compass
  • First aid kit
  • Plenty of water

Most importantly, let someone know before you go.

For the experienced walker enjoy one of the Victoria's iconic walks - The Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing is a true wilderness adventure with starry nights and endless untouched landscape. 3 Days, 37km and 2 starry nights!
