Hiking in the mountains

Alpenhorn is in the foothills of the Victorian Alps and hikers have been coming to this area for many years to explore the many walks and hiking trails that can be found here.

Victoria’s alpine high country offers hiking terrain like few other places in Australia.  From towering eucalyptus forest to alpine grasslands, rolling hills to snow-capped mountain peaks, there’s something for everyone.

There are also numerous stockmans’ huts throughout these mountains.  These huts were used by the cattle stockmen for shelter in days gone by.  The oldest of these huts is the more than 130 year old Wallace’s Hut, found up near Falls Creek.
