Top 10 Must Do's In Summer


1 Wallace to Cope Hut Trail

This scenic circuit begins at the track to Wallaces hut on the Bogong High Plains Road. From there, you can return to the start of the walk either by following the road for about 1.5 kilometres or by taking the walking track down a heath-filled valley to the Wallaces Hut track.

2 Tour the Bogong Alpine Way

Starting at Falls Creek the 230 kilometres takes you through the Alpine National Park circumnavigating Victoria's breathtaking alpine region through the quaint historic villages of Anglers Rest, Omeo and Dinner Plain over Mt Hotham, then back to Falls Creek via Mt Beauty.

3 Panoramic Picnic

The start of this walk can be accessed in many ways, either walking, chair lift or driving. Once at the top of the summit it is an easy stroll across the top of the mountain to Frying Pan Spur (Trig Point), approximately 700 metres.

4 Mountain to Mountain Challenge

Discover the spectacular Bogong High Plains and walk from Mt Hotham to Falls Creek! The walk is for the more experienced, covering around 25 kilometres of high country plains.

5 Rejuvenate in Pristine Falls

Falls Creek alpine environment provides one of the most pristine destinations to relax, unwind and get away from the clutter of everyday life.

6 Fly Fishing Heaven

Falls Creek lakes and surrounding rivers are one of Australia's premier fly fishing destinations. With wild bred brown and rainbow trout these fish know how to fight and have the staying power that hatchery bred trout lack.

7 High Country Horse Riding

There are many opportunities to explore and enjoy the surrounding mountains and valleys on horseback. Horse riding has a long association with the area - in the 1840's European explorers and miners used horses in their search for gold and summer pastures.

8 Explore Historic Bogong Village

Nestled between Mount Beauty and Falls Creek, Bogong Village is surrounded by magnificent gardens. Once the main village for the hydro electricity workers of the 1940s, Bogong Village is a summer favourite for canoeing, fishing, swimming, bushwalking and tennis.

9 Sunset on Mt McKay

The highest point in the resort (1,842m), accessible via road, offers breathtaking 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

10 Explore the Valleys

Falls Creek is the gateway to a huge range of activities, with alpine wineries, boutique breweries, local produce, micro-lighting, hang gliding, picturesque golf courses and sparkling rivers.
