Get amongst Victoria’s highest peaks in the Vic Alps. The Bogong High Plains offers a very special mountain experience. This large, undulating plains area sits up at an altitude amongst the highest peaks in Victoria – Mt Bogong, Mt Feathertop, Mt Nelse, Mt Hotham and Mt Jaitmathang. You can walk on the High Plains at mountain-top-altitude without doing the climb to get there.
On this 4-day walking tour, we’ll head out from our comfortable lodge in Falls Creek each day to explore the area. The walks are mainly undulating and while we’ll cover quite a few kilometres, the altitude changes are not huge. We’ll visit old cattlemen’s huts, stroll across the open grasslands and follow winding tracks through gum forest. Small streams trickle in the gullies, brumbies roam the hills and you might spot a bird of prey soaring silently above you.
Our biggest day of walking takes us to the summit of Mt Jaitmathang. Our altitude gain to reach the summit is only around 200 metres – easily within the grasp of most walkers. From the top we’ll be rewarded with spectacular views across the deep Kiewa Valley to Mt Feathertop and right across the High Plains.
From $1360 to $1760

The biggest day of walking takes us to the summit of Mt Bogong. Our altitude gain to reach the summit is around 1360 metres – within the grasp of most walkers with a good to excellent fitness level. The climb up is via the Staircase Spur track, climbing through the peppermints, then mountain gums, snow gums and finally breaking out above the tree line. From there we achieve the summit cairn, and stand upon via Victoria’s highest peak at 1986 meters.
