High Country Attractions
The attractions of the High Country are not limited to the snow ski season. Winter, summer, autumn or spring, there’s always something exciting to do in the High Country. Alternatively you can simply relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, play a round of golf, have a game of tennis or go for a bush walk.
The Mansfield Shire is renowned for its natural beauty and alpine mountains. Significant landscape features include Mount Buller, Mount Stirling and the Great Dividing Range. Natural environment features include parts of Lake Eildon and Alpine National Parks. Valleys of the Howqua, Delatite and Goulburn Rivers are also significant landscape features in the Shire. The areas are in high demand for recreation and lifestyle activities.
Come to the High Country and find yourself in a land where legends ride. Of course these days, those legends are as likely to be on a mountain bike, in a four wheel drive or on skis rather than on horseback. But legends they remain.
So what is it about this place that brings out the best in people? Well, for a start, its beautiful, rugged mountains, rolling snow plains, rushing rivers, gentle lakes and sweeping grasslands make for an ever changing, ever lovely backdrop.
But inspiring views are just the beginning of the story. Here, the warm climate and varied terrain mean that life is lived to the fullest outdoors. Whether you’re a skier, a horse rider, a cyclist, a fly-fisherman or just a sunworshipper, the High Country will call you to adventure. And yet, adventure isn’t the only thing that keeps people coming back. Life is good here.
Festivals fill the air with music and colour. There are local wines to taste, local gourmet produce to enjoy and local beers to try, brewed from pristine mountain waters.
However, the most appealing aspect of the High Country is its spirit.
