Walhalla to Neerim South, via Baw Baw
132km, about 2.5 hours
There's much adventure to be had between historic Walhalla, spectacular Mt Baw Baw Alpine Village and beautiful Noojee and Neerim. Stay two nights in an historic hotel in Walhalla, or rest overnight here and move on the next day to Neerim.
From Walhalla, discover the villages of Rawson and Erica and get back to nature with everything from 4WD tours and whitewater adventures, to fishing and bushwalking.
Take the turn off at Mt Erica Road and head to Mushroom Rocks, an impressive display of giant granite tors. Walk through the diverse and unspoilt landscapes of Baw Baw National Park to the rocks, a part of the 650-kilometre Australian Alps Walking Track that links Walhalla and Canberra.
There's something for everyone at Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort, winter or summer. Hit the slopes on a bushwalk, try toboganning or skiing during the snow season, or set out on a downhill biking adventure in the warmer months. Slow down with a soak in the outdoor spa at Baw Baw Alpine Resort.
Back on the road, make your way to Neerim South, one of the most picturesque towns in Gippsland. From Baw Baw, follow the tree-lined Mt Baw Baw Tourist Road through Icy Creek and Tanjil Bren, an old gold prospector's and logging village, until you reach Noojee. Continue on, eventually veering southward until you reach Neerim South.
Check in at Vivere Retreat at Neerim South or Vue at Jindivick for warm West Gippsland hospitality and more of those wonderfully verdant views.
