Enjoy a classic lodge based walking holiday exploring part of the Alpine National Park with Gippsland High Country Tours.
You can feel as though you are walking on the roof of Victoria as your guide leads you to explore some ridge-top tracks where folds of mountains extend into the distance. Then follow trails that meander gently through snowgum woodland and across snowgrass plains.
Lie on the grass and watch the clouds, touch smooth trunks of snowgums, enjoy butterflies or colourful beetles on wildflowers or just soak up the crisp mountain air and the peace and quiet.
Led by a local guide you will learn lots of fascinating information about the fragile ecology of the alpine environment plus hear stories of history and wonder what the future brings.
After a full day of walking and exploring, return to a cosy ski lodge at Dinner Plain Alpine Village for a hot shower and time to relax in the lounge. Your meal appears before you like magic and you can re-live the days activities. Small group (maximum 10 participants)
