Trekking in the Victorian High Country

Everything you'll need to trek the Mt Bluff trail in Victoria's High Country.

What to expect

The Alpine National Park in Victoria is home to 10 of the 11 highest mountains in the state. With its dramatic mountain landscapes, meandering rivers and rugged escarpments, this national park provides a set of truly unique wilderness treks.

From the Mt Bluff summit in particular, you'll have an unfettered view of the Alpine National Park, stretching to Mount Buller in the north and faraway Lake Eildon. Your knowledgeable guide will be able to point out the indigenous, rare animal such as the smoky mouse, broad-toothed rat and the powerful owl. The park has next to no light pollution, so you can expect a startlingly clear view of the milky way when wild-camping at night. If you're looking to properly disconnect in the wilderness, then this mini-adventure is the one for you.

In the words of Ness, your local guide, "It's the place my soul feels happiest."
