Walk, cycle, ski or snowboard on a holiday in and around Harrietville, the gateway village to the stunning Alpine National Park.
An alpine base
Use Harrietville as a base to explore the Alps year-round. Enjoy everything from skiing and snowboarding at Mount Hotham and Falls Creek in winter, to downhill races on mountain bikes and hiking amid springtime wildflowers on Mount Feathertop.
Dedicate enough time to explore the green and lush village. Follow walking and bicycle trails along the river, and enjoy a relaxing picnic, barbecue or swim at the beautiful Tronoh dredge hole, a reminder of the gold mining history and now the village's swimming lake. You'll find a wide range of accommodation in the village.
Replenish with the fare of gourmet local producers at Grannies Pantry, Lavender Farm and Feathertop Berries. Pick your own berries from local farms and snare your dinner in one of the rambling rivers, or opt for a safe catch in the trout farm.
Things to do
Lose yourself in spectacular mountain landscapes, wild rivers, impressive escarpments, snow gum forests and wide open grasslands known as high plains.
Ready your pack and set off to the top of Victoria's highest peaks for challenging terrain and breathtaking views over stunning alpine landscapes.
Hike the superb trail from Mt Hotham to the summit of Mt Feathertop following the sharp, craggy spine of the Razorback above the treeline.
