Dubbed the Victorian Alps, the High Country offers visitors a heady mix of adrenalin-pumping adventure, fascinating history, and foodie delights. It brings all of these key ingredients together against a stunning backdrop of mountain scenery and jutting peaks.
The snowy caps entice skiers and snowboarders in the winter months, when the white views provide a fairytale landscape, and bushwalkers in and bikers in the summer with its crisscross of trails that meander down the cliff faces and through verdant bush land.
Elsewhere in the region, small towns promise delicious foodie encounters and a smattering of historic charm – Beechworth and Bright are top of the menu, while the picturesque wineries of King Valley and Rutherglen draw in wine-lovers from all over the country. Throughout the High Country, there is a heavy emphasis on the good life, where food reigns strong and mountain views bring a touch of magical charisma to the rugged scenery.
