Overview

Outdoor activities

Whether you're an adrenaline junkie or a casual weekend bushwalker, the High Country delivers on all fronts. Leave the city behind and discover an outdoor playground readymade for nature lovers, complete with pristine Alpine wilderness, lush valleys and winding waterways.

You don't need flashy equipment to get active. Set aside an afternoon and explore a national park on foot or cycle between wineries to sample new vintages. Cruise along rail trails and take in the changing landscape as you ride. And stop to cool off in local lakes and rivers during the summer months.

Set up camp with the kids and then watch out for local wildlife and gorgeous summer wildflowers on alpine walking tracks. Cast a line from your houseboat on Lake Eildon or hit the mountain streams for more challenging fishing opportunities.

If you're looking for something to get the heart racing, there are plenty of high-energy activities on offer. Get your kicks skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing through the winter months or test your mettle on mountain bike trails, road cycling routes and horse-riding tours during the warm season. Take it up a notch with rock climbing, abseiling or even hang gliding at Mt Buffalo, one of the state's most popular action sports destinations.
