A good level of fitness is essential for this hike.
On this 3-day walking tour, we’ll head out from our comfortable accommodation each day to explore the area. We’ll visit old cattlemen’s huts, stroll across the open grasslands and follow winding tracks through gum forest. Small streams trickle in the gullies, brumbies roam the hills and you might spot a bird of prey soaring silently above you.
Our biggest day of walking takes us to the summit of Mt Bogong. Our altitude gain to reach the summit is around 1360 metres – within the grasp of most walkers with a good to excellent fitness level. The climb up is via the Staircase Spur track, climbing through the peppermints, then mountain gums, snow gums and finally breaking out above the tree line. From there we achieve the summit cairn, and stand upon via Victoria’s highest peak at 1986 meters
