Things to See and Do The Great Alpine Road

Explore one of the greatest touring roads in the world, the Great Alpine Road. More than 300km of wrap around scenery, that winds between snow-capped mountains in the winter, passing by farms and vineyards, through valleys and over rivers. Starting at Wangaratta to Bairnsdale, make an entire road trip of it, book in at some quaint holiday villas on the way, go wine tasting, cycling, stop and camp and enjoy some of the spectacular fishing, or just take your time and soak it all in.

High Country Family Adventure

Whether you are headed down to High Country in winter or summer, you will be assured of an action packed holiday for the entire family to enjoy. Winter brings loads of snow, filling up the slopes and bringing skiing; snowboarding and tobogganing back into fashion, and don’t forget the obligatory snow ball fights and the building of snowmen. Summer is just magic in this part of the country, with the hiking, horse riding, white water rafting, rock climbing, and adventure cycling; the never ending wonders of High Country will stun you!

High Country Heritage

Take a trip down memory lane and explore life as it was almost 20, 000 years ago. Take a Cattlemen History tour and cycle, walk or take a horse trail through the infamous camps that the Cattlemen built from scratch, when they used to drive their cattle from camp to camp. Check out the historic huts, their implements, the long alpine grasses and catch a glimpse through an ancient window in time.

High Country Harvest

Every year all throughout the sensational High Country get ready for a gastronomic experience that is literally out of this world. For 10 days every year in May, local farmers, wine makers and brewers host an incredible showcase of their divine food, wine, and beer and just harvested autumn loot. Eat, drink and be merry, just make sure you didn’t book your holiday rental too far away from the food stalls, so you won’t have very far to walk when you need a serious after lunch lie down.

High Country Climate

The temperate and sunny climate of High Country has a summer average daytime temperature of 22 C, with a winter snowfall area high in the alpine regions. A perfect all year round destination for the entire family, summer runs from October to March and winter from April to September.

Getting there from the UK

Fly into Melbourne or Sydney and hire a car from the airport. Your High Country adventure starts on the road from the airport as you leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind you and head on out into postcard perfect surroundings. Remember that if you are going to your holiday accommodation in the mountains, or plan to go off the main roads, you will need a vehicle that will be able to handle the off road terrain, so make sure you hire a 4x4 to get you to your holiday villa on time.

The house itself was very clean and well appointed. Kitchen has been recently updated and all appliances are new. Everything you could wish for was available and Rod called around to run through some of the appliances and TV etc to make sure we were easily able to use them. He gave us great information about Bright and its attractions, did 2 great walks as he suggested, the Canyon Walk which is at the back of the property and the more challenging Lower and Upper Eurobin Falls in Mt Buffalo National Park. We were able to walk to the town centre in 5 mins and sampled some good meals at the Brewery and Riverdeck Cafe. Our favourite coffee was a 5 minute drive away at Sixpence Coffee and also loved Blackbird Cafe. Fresh flowers, chocolate and bubbles are a welcome touch. Would definitely stay here again.
