Some of the best mountain walking country in Australia is found in the Alps. There are some easy short walks that can be tackled on a family weekend. Others are long, rough and challenging, requiring a degree of bushwalking skill and stamina. Due to the remote nature of this park, walkers must be self-sufficient with food, water, first aid and camping gear, and be skilled in the use of maps and compass. Walkers and hikers should also be aware that the weather can deteriorate suddenly and without warning, and snow can fall at any time of year, including mid-summer. Don't hesitate to turn back if the trip becomes too difficult. The alpine region boasts some of Australia's finest ski touring areas, from well-defined and groomed trails within and near the Falls Creek and Mt Hotham Alpine Resorts, to the winter wilderness of the Dargo High Plains. Popular spots for cross-country skiing include areas around the resorts such as the Bogong High Plains, JB Plain and the Mt Loch area. The resorts also offer downhill skiing opportunities. Mt Bogong, The Razorback, Mt Feathertop and the Dargo High Plains are visited by more experienced cross-country skiers. Mountain biking, picnics, camping and horse riding are other popular activities in Alpine National Park. There are many ways to reach the Alpine National Park. One of the main access points to the Alpine National Parks is the town of Mansfield, via the Maroondah Highway from Melbourne (200km) or Midland Highway from Benalla (63km). From the south access is via the Great Alpine Road, from Bairnsdale to Omeo and Mt Hotham or the Dargo High Plains Road from Dargo to Mt Hotham.

Visited the High Country with a friend, Alpine National park has some amazing views to see, great lookout points. We arrived after a very cold and snowy night, made the scenery look even better.

Hiked Mt Bogong for the first time recently and what a great experience. Hiked the Eskdale Spur to the summit and back. The views at the summit were breathtaking and well worth the effort. The track is very rocky in parts so you need to be relatively fit and make sure you wear hiking boots for stability. Overall, it was... More

This is one of the rare places left in victoria with free camping. It's also a very quiet place with few visitors. The rivers run clear and there's loads of wildlife. Along the Wellington river there is a series of 13 campsites, each with its own characteristics. Red Bluff has just one spot, protected by a tall red cliff. Red... More
