High Country - Victoria

Experience a home away from home and embrace the welcoming feel, bestowed upon visitors by family run boutique wineries, accommodations and gourmet restaurants. Take to the Alps and carve up the snow in Winter or simply watch the stunning wildflower display as the weather warms up. If you're a relaxation recluse or an adrenalin junkie there is something for everyone in Victoria's diverse High Country. From camping under the stars to cruising on a houseboat, snowboarding to fishing and horseriding to cycling, it's all here for the taking. Follow your tastebuds and give in to the indulgent pleasures surrounding you and head to Milawa for olives, fish, meat and cheese and pubs and cafes immersed in rural ambience in every village. Beechworth honey and boutique beer in Bright and King Valley by bike is the best way to work off the fine food experiences you will encounter along the way.

The High Country's eight wine regions has a reputation that is unsurpassed with unique sub-alpine conditions creating intense fruit characters and high natural acidity. Relax in one of the alfresco dining terraces, sipping the local wines while taking in the idyllic valley views. There is plenty of accommodation for all visitors' preferences from happy campers to kings of comfort. There are plenty of caravan parks, National Parks, motels, B & B's, cottages lodges, stately homesteads and alpine resorts.

The only problem you will find as you explore this unspeakably beautiful region are the pleasant diversions and distractions that pop up around every turn.
