Gippsland High Country Tours take you on a classic, lodge accommodated, Alpine Walk. Walking on the roof of Victoria with a lovely balance of short and half day walks. It is a challenging full day walk to Victoria's second highest peak, Mount Feathertop, 1992 metres.
From ski lodge accommodation at Dinner Plain Alpine Village, stretch you legs on great energetic walks each day to explore the alpine environment.
Wander across alpine meadows with summer wildflowers at your feet, enjoy the stately snow gums, sculptured by the wind and from lofty peaks, gaze across a sea of mountains. The peace and quiet is often only broken by the cheerful chatter of a Flame Robin.
The superb ridge-top walk along the Razorback to the summit of Mount Feathertop and return is long day walk as it is 22 kilometres, so you do need to be fit.
Walking the Alpine National Park at its best. Carry only a light day pack on this and other walks as our overnight accommodation is in a cosy ski lodge at Dinner Plain Village.
Add an expert walking guide, great company, a cosy bed every night and meals that appear before you, to ensure a memorable holiday.
