Five Day Mt Feathertop Adventure

Macleod Street, Bairnsdale Railway Station, Bairnsdale, Victoria, 3875

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 your lodge accommodation at Dinner Plain Alpine Village, stretch your 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, spectacular scenery, carry only a light day pack and return to overnight ski lodge accommodation 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.

Tour highlights:
  • Dinner Plain Alpine Village
    Dinner Plain Alpine Village is a wonderful base for your Alpine explorations and the ski lodges are built with very interesting architecture. Their colours blend well with the surrounding snowgum forest. Lovely walks start right at the village and just a short drive away is the true alpine zone around Mt Hotham with the walking trails to Mt Loch and Mt Feathertop nearby.

Discover nature on a small group, guided eco-tour or walk with Gippsland High Country Tours. Escape from the pressures of everyday life and experience the serenity of East Gippsland and the beyond on a fully packaged tour with cosy accommodation every night.

Gaze over a sea of mountains, breathe in the clear mountain air and touch the smooth trunks of snow-gums. Experience deserted beaches or ancient forests. Listen to bird calls as you wander along fern-lined tracks beneath towering trees or across alpine plains with wildflowers at your feet.

Join a small friendly group of like-minded nature lovers led by experienced local guides, keen to share their love and knowledge of nature with you.

Take your time, appreciate the beauty and listen as your guide explains the interaction of plants and animals. Wildlife sightings are common and leisurely pace allows time for bird watching. Choose short or long walks with magnificent scenery and rich history.

Your guides know that you need a balance of activity and relaxation, so as well as structured activities and walking we allow time to relax and enjoy nature and the unique environments you visit.

Experience solitude, peace and tranquillity and return home truly refreshed.
