OVERVIEW

Few places in Australia offer such a diversity of pristine scenery and hiking options as the Victorian Alps. This self-guided walking holiday traverses striking landscapes of alpine forests, grassland, snow-blanketed mountains, precipitous ridges and high plains. The alpine hiking trails cover some of the most spectacular sections of the 700km Alpine Walking Track from Walhalla to Canberra.

With each breath of fresh alpine air, the stresses of modern life will slowly be left behind. Take in dramatic views from the breathtaking Razorback Ridge to Mt Feathertop, the second highest peak in Victoria. The walk from Falls Creek to Hotham via the Cobungra Valley, Derrick Hut and Dibbins Hut is not only epic but provides a real sense of accomplishment. Importantly, there are additional short walks in the area for those who would like to do more exploring.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Dramatic views from the breathtaking Razorback Ridge to Mt Feathertop, the second highest peak in Victoria
  • Stunning alpine hiking trails
  • Discover and explore historic cattlemen huts along the way
  • Opportunity to see wild brumbies
  • Challenge of tackling Mt Tabletop

ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

The accommodations are excellent on the Great Alpine Walk, we use high quality self contained apartments all in excellent locations. You will have a private room at Falls Creek and Hotham Alpine Village. All rooms come with their own ensuites. Most importantly our suppliers on the ground offer a level of unsurpassed friendly service that you can only find in the mountains.

Dinners are not included while in Falls Creek as there are many great restaurants within walking distance. You will be provided with locally sourced ingredients to cook your own breakfast. During your stay in Hotham, the 2 included two-course dinners are prepared by chefs as are the cooked breakfasts.

Each day whilst you’re walking you’ll be provided with a substantial Walkers Lunch and get to eat it at a fabulous location on the track. A Walkers Lunch is varied and may include a high protein type salad, roll or a wrap, muesli bar, cake or muffin and a piece of fruit.

Alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).

GENERAL INFO

This Great Alpine Walk starts and finishes in Bright. It’s a 5-hour drive from Melbourne, with public transport services available from the city. Contact us for more details.

This is one of the more challenging inn-to-inn walks. The terrain on the alpine hiking trails is sometimes undulating, some up and down, but with plenty of flat sections along well-marked trails. Rougher tracks progress along with gradual ascents to the summits for spectacular views, then down steeper downhill sections through snow gums to forested valleys below.

You’ll be walking an average of 17 km a day over five days. Those that enjoy the solitude of nature will appreciate some days where you are probably more likely to see deer and wild horses than other walkers.

There are five walking days on this seven-day itinerary, starting in Bright and ending in the village of Hotham. We include accommodation from day one to day six, including breakfast each morning, lunch each walking day and 2 dinners, transfers and comprehensive trip notes and walking maps. We transfer your luggage to the next accommodation so you can focus on enjoying the walking with just your daypack and what you need for the day.

Not included: alcohol, meals not listed in the itinerary, drinks with meals (except tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).

WEATHER

This walk can be done any time from the start of December to 20th April. This mountain environment is about 10–15 degrees cooler than Melbourne and Sydney, and there is a possibility of bad weather even during summer. January and February are usually warm and the alpine wildflowers are at their best. December and March are usually mild and considered by many people to be the best times to visit.

See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about average temperatures and rainfall at different times of the year.

INSURANCE

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

For all trips that require international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance that also includes medical evacuation coverage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred from our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
