National parks & reserves

The national parks and reserves of High Country protect some of the most spectacular natural areas in the state.

Alpine National Park is the largest, with some of Australia's most outstanding alpine landscapes, rocky escarpments, snow gum woodlands, alpine plains and Victoria's highest and best-known peaks including Mount Feathertop and Mount Bogong.

The rugged plateau of Mount Buffalo is Victoria's oldest national park and is famous for its massive granite tors, plunging waterfalls and cliff-top views.

Other parks offer the opportunity to explore the original Box Ironbark forests and many historic sites that reveal the region's gold rush and early pioneering past.
