8.30am — Hearty Breakfast
Our local cafes will serve up some tasty goodness to fuel today’s adventures.
9.30am — Mount Beauty Gorge Walk
This is a great little walk, and just 6km return. Venture out to a scenic gorge and perhaps even take a dip.
12.00pm — Lunchtime
Nice views and a range of lunch fare are to be found at the venues throughout Tawonga South and Mount Beauty.
1.30pm — Fainter Falls
We can’t plan you a nature itinerary without adding in the beautiful Fainter Falls, just a 700m walk in from the road.
3.30pm — Wallaces & Cope Huts, Falls Creek
Continue on to Falls Creek and enjoy a 6km return alpine walk on the Wallaces Heritage Trail in summer, or snowshoe in winter.
5.00pm — Bogong Village
On the return drive, stop in at Bogong Village and go for a short walk around Lake Guy. This is one absolutely stunning spot in Autumn.
6.30pm — Dinner Out
Some mouth-watering restaurants open their doors of an evening, so treat yourself to something
delicious in Mount Beauty or Tawonga South.
7.00am — Bakery Goodness
Open early, grab a bite to eat at the bakery. Make sure you've packed food and water for the day.
8.00am — Mount Bogong Summit
This is a hard full-day hike that will take you right to the summit of Victoria’s highest mountain – Mount Bogong – via the Staircase or Eskdale Spur. Good fitness is required. In winter, or for a more moderate day, explore the numerous walking trails around the base of the mountain at Mountain Creek and Shady Gully.
12.00pm — Picnic Lunch
Pause either at the summit of Mount Bogong – known as Warkwoolowler in the local Dhudhuroa language, meaning place where the people collect the bogong moth – or on one of your scenic walks and enjoy your pre-packed picnic lunch.
6.00pm — Dinnertime
You’ll be famished, so finish the day with a hearty pub meal at the local haunt.
