Gippsland High Country Tours

Gippsland High Country Tours take you on a classic lodge accommodated, Alpine Walking holiday. Walk on the roof of Victoria with a lovely balance of half and full day walks. The highlight is a challenging long day walk to Victoria's second highest peak, Mount Feathertop, 1992 metres.

From our lodge accommodation at Dinner Plain Alpine Village, stretch you legs every day on great energetic walks to explore the alpine environment.

Wander across alpine meadows and look out for autumn wildflowers, 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 (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, a small group of like-minded walkers and meals that appear before you like magic, to ensure a memorable holiday.
