Rock climbing & abseiling

Clamber over the High Country's iconic rocky outcrops, putting into practice your training or learning the ropes with experienced operators.

Mount Buffalo – adventure paradise
Head to Mount Buffalo, a mecca for climbers and abseilers. The views are unforgettable and beginners and advanced adventurers will find a chunk of rock on the sheer granite face of The Gorge, which boasts excellent single and multi-pitch climbing. The North Wall is the place for aid climbs.

Mount Buller, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek
Climb indoors and outdoors at Mount Buller. Get tuition from LaTrobe University on its indoor climbing wall and outdoor abseiling tower, and practice on summit rock faces and behind Chamois Tun. You can even try ice climbing in winter. 

Explore the small boulder areas in Hotham's resort area, and try the climbing site at Mount Smyth (watch for loose rock). Abseil at Dinner Plain, ice climb at Australia Drift (below Hotham) and mountaineer on Mount Feathertop. 

Beginners will happily abseil at Falls Creek and at the site below the Howmans Gap Alpine Centre. There's limited top rope climbing at Strawberry Saddle. 

Climbing from the lowlands
From Beechworth, try single pitch climbing at Mount Pilot and Mount Stanley's granite areas. Abseil at Mount Pilot, at the Beechworth Gorge, and out at Eldorado.

Try abseiling on Mount Mittamatite, near Corryong.
