Overview

Nature & wildlife

The High Country is home to the Victorian Alps, the spectacular alpine section of Australia's iconic Great Dividing Range. Travel through this inspiring region and discover white-capped mountains and snow gum forests, Alpine lakes, rolling green farmlands and wetlands teeming with wildlife.

Nature's blessings

Experience the natural wonder of the Alpine National Park, the largest national park in Victoria and home to 10 of the 11 highest mountains in the state. Explore the pristine wilderness and witness a changing landscape boasting everything from raging rivers and rocky outcrops to ghostly forests and high plains carpeted with wildflowers.

Adventure seekers gravitate to Mount Buffalo National Park for its sheer cliffs, boulder stacks and plunging waterfalls, while water sports enthusiasts and fisher folk can't resist the vast expanse of the Lake Eildon National Park.

Faces in the trees

Hit the tracks and trails of national parks and reserves across the High Country and see the local wildlife in their natural habitat. Keep a look out for swamp wallabies, wombats, echidnas and possums during the summertime. Visit in winter and you might see a little wombat wandering across the snow in search of grass. Bird watching opportunities abound too, with wetlands, river systems and Alpine regions playing host to countless native species. 

Make your way to the pine clearings near Mansfield or the banks of Lake Eildon at dusk to see kangaroos, coming out of the forest to graze. And watch the kids' eyes light up on a trip to Mansfield Zoo, regional Victoria's largest zoo.
