Gippsland High Country Tours

The Snowy River National Park boasts some of Victoria's most breathtaking scenery, Gippsland High Country Tours show you waterfalls, vast rugged gorges and endless mountain views.

Sit on the banks of the legendary Snowy River, listen to the silence and smell the fresh bush scents. Walk quietly across McKillops Bridge and hear the story of its construction.

Then on to Errinundra National Park. Here you will feel dwarfed by the immense trees of the old-growth eucalypt forests and enjoy an easy boardwalk through ancient cool-temperate rainforest where light filters through the canopy onto ferns and moss festooned logs.

High on the Errinundra Plateau, the treetops are often shrouded in mountain mist, creating an atmosphere of its own. Amble along leafy tracks and take in the beauty of these magical forests.

Featuring birds, wildlife and really easy walks, this is a relaxed pace tour with ample time to enjoy the tranquillity of your natural surroundings. Fully accommodated.

Your Gippsland High Country Tours guide will help you understand the way plants and animals interact in these different environments. You will not just return home refreshed and relaxed, but with new knowledge and a better understanding of the natural world.
