Your home away from home – High Country, Victoria, Australia

There’s nothing like the warm country welcome and hospitality, when you book into your holiday accommodation in the stunning Victoria region of High Country. Charismatic valleys, The Great Alpine Road, holiday accommodation chalets, hearty country fare, winter sports when it snows, and house boat adventures for the entire family awaits. Whatever your family is looking for in a holiday, just pick a season, and book your holiday rental early, and pack your skis or your tent, and get ready to fall in love with High Country.

All the romance, history and charm of small town kindness, rolling wine farms, gorgeous sunny tea rooms, tucked away behind stone buildings, leafy, tree-lined glens, rural gems, unbelievable food and award winning wines is what makes High Country such an amazing holiday destination for the entire family. Book the family in at accommodation on a working farm, or choose from grand homesteads as your holiday rental, or book a friendly self catering apartment perched atop the alpines.

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.

A Perfect Stay amidst the Autumn Colours.

5 of 5
We recently spent 3 nights at Ned Kelly's Marlo Cottage. We took my elderly Mother with us, to experience beautiful Beechworth & the Autumn colours. Our time at the cottage was just perfect. Joanne, the cottage manager was there to greet us, which was lovely. She explained everything about the cottage i.e. heating, kitchen supplies, brief history of cottage, local restaurants etc. Very helpful. The cottage was spotless; beds very comfortable with lovely linen; kitchen was extremely well equipped; we were so warm and cosy with the gas log fire & central heating. Beechworth is a beautiful town. We went to the Ox & Hounds for a superb dinner. A beautiful 3 days. We can't wait to return. Wendy, John & Valerie
