Easily accessible from the Bogong Highplains Road, this little beauty is an ideal half to full day trip and a great way to get up close to a High Country Hut without having to hike all day. Just 500 metres from the carpark on the Bogong Highplinas road there are spectacular views of the High Plains and on a clear day you can see as far as Benambra on the other side of the Great Dividing Range. There are some great picnic spots so pack some lunch and a thermos. Cope Hut was built by the Ski Club of Victoria in 1929 after the state experienced a surge in skiing in the 1920s. The hut was called “The Menzies of the High Plains” by early skiers and walkers because of its size and comfort.
