Rugged peaks and Dreamtime legends, never-ending skies, pioneer history and vibrant, changing landscapes - welcome to Victoria’s spectacular alpine territory. Step out of the everyday and follow in the footsteps of generations gone by on a trek through some of Australia’s most pristine mountain scenery. Nature lovers, adventure seekers and history buffs alike will revel in the sweeping views and diverse wildlife, cattlemen’s huts and vivid flora found along the trail. Sleep out under blinking stars and unwind amid the tranquil beauty of this ancient country. Walk over high alpine ridgelines, down through magical riverside valleys to wetlands brimming with life. Wander across high plains, alive with the brilliant colour of summertime wildflowers, and keep an eye out for shy native wildlife watching you pass.
Dreamtime stories, indelibly linked to the land, provide a glimpse into 2000 generations of local indigenous heritage, while historic wooden huts, built when cattlemen and bushrangers still roamed the mountains, are a place to rest and ponder. Summer is the most popular season for walking, with wildflowers in full bloom and the cool alpine air a welcome break from the heat below. However, anytime between late spring and autumn is suitable to walk. Moderate fitness is required, with certain sections requiring stamina and plenty of easy walks in between. Be challenged, rewarded and changed over three inspiring days and two starry nights on this 37 km trek through Victoria’s alpine wilderness.
