Overview

Famous for skiing, but awesome for hiking. Taste some real adventure and reach the summit of both Mt Buller and Mt Stirling. Not only that, on the steeper side of Mt Buller we try out some steeper terrain with Australia’s only and brand new Via Ferrata experience. Explore the Victorian High Country and surrounding areas featuring stunning mountains, valleys, rivers and an abundance of rich history.

The spectacular landscape changes from alpine grassland, rolling hills and eucalyptus forests to Mountain peaks, sheer ridges and high plains. Spoiling us with a vast array of activities, hiking challenges and breath-taking scenery, this high country tour allows you to work hard on the trail during the day and rest easy at night.
