For a change in scenery, follow the Bungalow Spur Walk from the quaint town of Harrietville and climb over 1300-metres to reach the pinnacle of Mount Feathertop. Sheltered from the harsh alpine conditions, for the most part, take a break at Federation Hut before making the final ascent to the top.
For shorter, family-friendly walks, set out on the Bungalow Spur Walk to Picture Point or Tobias Gap for views over the Ovens Valley. Or opt for a walk out to Carmichael Falls, where the confluence of the Precipice and Dinner Plain Creeks plunges 25-metres to the headwaters of the Dargo River.
Stay a night or two in the comfort of Harrietville, Mount Hotham or Dinner Plain, all cool havens through the summer months. The Brabralung Trail running between Dinner Plain Alpine Village and Mount Hotham Alpine Resort too is wonderful. Suited to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter, and ideal for mountain biking, walking and trail running once the snow has melted, the 12-kilometre trail is not to be missed.
The bike-friendly towns of Dinner Plain and Hotham offer thrilling mountain biking and road cycling experiences - with the benefits of spectacular alpine vistas around every corner. Mountain bike through Snow Gums along The Brabralung Trail, or challenge yourself with the 7-Peaks ascent to the top of Hotham or Dinner Plain. And visit the Dinner Plain Alpine Village to access over 35-kilometres of singletrack mountain bike trails.
