Dinner Plain, Hiking and Walking

When the snow melts, the alpine wildflowers bloom, and the skies clear with panoramic mountain views that stretch as far as the eye can see


Experience once of Australia's rarest landscapes on one of the many walking trails that wind through the Alpine National Park surrounding Dinner Plain and Mount Hotham. The best time of year to hike our alpine environment falls between early November and late April, and the summer months are particularly pleasant with alpine wildflowers in full bloom.

Remember, you are venturing into an alpine environment that is snow-covered in winter and weather conditions can change rapidly. When venturing out on a hike, always carry warm clothing and a waterproof jacket, a sun hat, sturdy shoes, a map, a first aid kit and plenty of water as well as snacks. Importantly, let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return.
