Victoria's High Country

Bogong mountain high In summer, Victoria’s high country welcomes visitors with walking trails, cycle touring and mountain biking, trout fishing and vistas from every turn in the road. From the ski village of Falls Creek east and down to the Mitta Mitta River, the Bogong High Plains Road – closed by winter snows – winds across a wonderland of rolling plains dotted with weatherbeaten snow gums, gurgling streams, marshy frost hollows and low, rocky summits. Now the dusty ribbon of gravel has become another busy touring route for weekend warriors, with the last stretch across the high plains tar-sealed.
