Discover Victoria's magnificent Alpine National Park with Gippsland High Country Tours, on this lodge based eco-tour at the height of the summer wildflower season. Relax, breathe in the clear mountain air and enjoy lots of short guided nature walks with Alpine wildflowers at your feet.

With Gippsland High Country Tours learn about unique alpine wildlife and how they survive in an often harsh environment. The alps is a very sensitive habitat and animals and plants are often very dependent on each other.

There are expansive views of mountain ranges extending further than the eye can see and close up, touch the smooth bark of gnarled snow gums. The High Country is also host to a rich history and your guide is keen to share with you stories of both the early indigenous peoples as well as the explorers and early settlers.

This eco-tour includes six nights motel and lodge accommodation so you can relax in comfort at the end of each day. Fresh air, good easy walks and the company of a small group of like-minded travellers, make for a perfect summer holiday break.
