About Dinner Plain Alpine Village

There’s something romantic about a village, blanketed in snow, crisp mountain air and a warm drink by the fireplace as the snowflakes float outside the window. The romance continues as the snow melts and the hills erupt with wildflowers. It's pure High Country, with mother nature's playground at your doorstep.

Our relaxed, high altitude village of over 300 private chalets snuggled between the snow gums offers the perfect chance to take some time out with as much or as little adventure as you like. Offering year round activity both inside or out, lux or laidback, high energy or low key, you really can create a break that is perfectly you.

What makes Dinner Plain so special?

Designed to compliment the beautiful snow gums and history of the area, Dinner Plain is open all year and offers a choice of accommodation the mountain cattlemen could only have dreamed of. We're located at 1,500m high in the mountains at the heart of the Great Alpine Road, halfway between the Great Alpine Valleys and the Gippsland Lakes, Victoria. There are so many wonderful nature-based experiences in Victoria's High Country.

Relax by the fireside, wine and dine, or during the winter months spoil yourself with a visit to the Onsen Retreat and Spa. Indulge in the unique experience that Dinner Plain has to offer on your doorstep; explore the many cross-country ski trails, head out on snowshoes through the bush tracks and trails, or take the entire family to the village's Cobungra Platter beginner ski slope and Peashooter Toboggan Slope. Or simply relax and watch the kids build a snowman in your very own front yard.

For those planning to ski or snowboard the renowned slopes of Hotham Alpine Resort are just 10km away. Dinner Plain is a wonderful option to stay, especially for families, with parking available at your chalet and regular shuttle buses to Hotham.

The snow melts and Dinner Plain is transformed, through mother nature a playground has been created for sporting and nature enthusiasts. Explore the Alpine National Park, walk, trek, run an extensive trail network that weaves throughout unique terrain. Or take to two wheels and cycle some of the most challenging road ascents, mountain bike through some of the most spectacular scenery or gravel grind along the Brabralung Trail to Mount Hotham.

Admire the breathtaking scenery as you drive, cycle or ride the touring loops; the Great Alpine Road or the Bogong Alpine Way. Or simply sit back and relax while the world goes by.
