Can you keep a secret?
Victoria’s High Country is a rugged tapestry of mountains, alpine valleys, pristine rivers and vibrant townships.
Whether you’re hitting the slopes in winter, hiking secluded trails, cycling historic railway lines or tasting your way through craft beers, artisan spirits and award-winning wines, the High Country is an endless adventure, all year round.
But you already know all that.
Nobody knows the secrets of Victoria's High Country like the locals do. The off the beaten track wineries. The rustic farm gates. The secluded swimming holes. The tucked away trails. The little restaurants serving up the big flavours.
We’re a region of small communities with soul – celebrity isn’t our vibe. We’re inviting the pleasure seekers and secret keepers to look a little deeper.
Live like the locals do
Why not hop on the bike and ride the elevated Skyline Road for stonking views of Lake Eildon, or beat the heat with a secluded river dip at the gum tree-lined Northern Beaches. Or for an unhurried experience, wine lovers can venture a little further along Rutherglen’s Muscat Mile for an unexpectedly progressive wine tasting at Scion.
