One of Victoria's favourite playgrounds, the High Country region offers families plenty of opportunities to get outdoors. Horse riding, mountain biking, rafting and rock climbing are popular in summer, while winter snowfalls bring skiing, tobogganing and snowball fights.
Get out there and show your kids all the wonders of the High Country. Pitch your tent and drink billy tea under the stars in a national park, enjoy diverse landscapes and great food on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, or climb aboard a toboggan and hurtle downhill one of Victoria's spectacular ski resorts. If that's too slow for the older kids, why not join them on a snowboarding, mountain biking or rafting expedition.
