Best of Mount Beauty

Understated and charming - relish the quieter side of the Alpine region

If heading for the peace and quiet of the mountains is on the cards, you may want to steer clear of those 'first-to-mind' favourites and visit somewhere a little less crowded... like Mount Beauty!

The aptly named Alpine town offers the perfect jumping-off-point for those wishing to spend some time exploring Falls Creek in all its summer glory, whilst still offering a plethora of options in and around the town.

This itinerary will see you in hidden-away accommodation, enjoying a day at Falls Creek, a Hatted Chef dinner, scenic walks, a brewery, lakes and more.

Happy travels!
