Destination guide

A land of wineries and towering peaks

Discover Australia's Alpines, a land of rolling mountains that drop down into fertile wine-growing valleys punctuated by glittering lakes and forests. It's an adventure playground where you can hike through the Alpine National Park, climb challenging cliffs, mountain bike along meandering trails, and ski on the powdered slopes. Use the High Country vacation rentals as a base to explore the Muscat vineyard trail, stopping en route to learn about the history of wine making and taste the cool-climate vintages. Afterwards, why not try the fine food created from local organic produce in the numerous restaurants?

Things to do

Discover High Country's outlaw history

High Country is steeped in history and is perhaps best known as the stomping ground of the infamous outlaw Ned Kelly. An epic route takes travelers past Kelly and his gang's most notorious hideout, heist, and hold-up locations. In the heritage town of Beechworth, you might catch a re-enactment of Kelly's trial in the courthouse, while a museum in Glenrowan depicts the fascinating life of the bushranger. There are several wine regions in the cool foothills of the mountains creating some of Australia's finest vintages. Wineries open their doors to travelers looking to discover the rich wine making history and taste some excellent shiraz, muscat and chardonnays paired with mouthwatering food cooked using local produce.

Activities

High adventure in the High Country

Those looking to escape the city in favor of a more scenic vacation should head straight to the High Country. Every morning, you will be met by views of pristine mountains carpeted by wildflowers, and gorges carved by fast-flowing rivers. During the summer months, it's possible to cast your line into the high lakes and mountain streams to snare a rainbow trout or golden perch. High Country is best seen from above. Climb the challenging vertical routes or go hang gliding off Mount Buffalo to enjoy gorgeous views down over the vineyards below. Meanwhile, the winter carpets the mountains with powdery snow used by snowboarders and skiers who carve their way down the slopes.

Weather

A destination for all seasons

There's never a bad time to visit the High Country. The spring falls between September and November when the days are pleasantly warm and the skies clear. Wildflowers begin to blanket the rolling hills, making it a particularly scenic time for hikers. The summers are dry and hot, but adventure-seekers are cooled by the glorious mountain breezes. The forests teem with golden hues during the mild fall before the winter cold snap turns the High Country into a winter wonderland of glistening powdery snow. High Country vacation rentals offer travelers the opportunity to discover this year-round hotspot.
