Alpine Discovery Tour (5 days)

Mcleod Street, Bairnsdale, Victoria, 3875

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

With a local guide to share their love and knowledge of the alps, you will 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.

Enjoy expansive views of mountain ranges extending further than the eye can see and close up, touch the smooth bark of gnarled snow gums. The mountains also boast 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 European settlers.

This eco-tour includes four nights motel and lodge accommodation and meals appear like magic, so you can relax in comfort at the end of each day. With fresh air, lots of easy walking and the company of a small group of like-minded nature lovers, this makes a perfect summer holiday break.
