Victoria’s High Country
Plan an uplifting event or conference in spirit-filled, touch-the-sky high country.
Myths, mountains and memories… the High Country teems with them. From winter snowfields, to bushranger folklore, cattlemen traditions and natural highs, your delegates will have their hands and their hearts full.
Choose your venue from chalets, performing arts centres, purpose-built conference resorts and elegant spas.
No matter what time of year you come, the mountain peaks of the Great Dividing Range and the Alpine Valleys of the King and Lower Ovens Rivers provide a diverse collection of destinations, incentives and activities.
Unravel the Ned Kelly legend at museums and historically signifi cant sites including his last stand, hideout and prison cell.
Pit yourselves against nature and the forces of gravity: abseil down the North Wall, a 300m rock wall face in Mount Buffalo National Park. Picnic lunch by bubbling Crystal Brook at the base then climb the South Wall or the cairn trail back up.
Saddle up for a convoy horseback trail ride, galloping through alpine scenery on the very tracks and trails ridden by legendary pioneer mountain men and The Man From Snowy River. Or take it to a higher level with paragliding, hang gliding, ultralight flying or skydiving.
In winter, opt for downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing or snow shoeing, then warm with a local award-winning wine by a roaring chalet fire.
Explore historic Beechworth and Mansfield, or hike into lofty alpine country for stunning scenery. Book out a swanky restaurant for en masse fine dining or take your fill of local produce at provedores, cafés, wineries and hearty-fare hotels.
Aim high and be rewarded with an event they’ll all be buzzing about.
