Things to do - Mansfield & High Country
If you are staying near Lake Eildon, there is a terrific 7km walk beginning (and ending) at the carpark at Wallaby Bay. The walk follows the edge of Lake Eildon to Cook Point and then ascends to Blowhard Spur. There are great views towards Mt Buller from the summit of Blowhard Spur.
For those seeking to explore the High Country, walk along the Australian Alps walking track in the Alpine National Park. The 6km walk begins at Wallaces Hut carpark, Bogong High Plains Road.
For those that don't mind a fairly steep and long climb (4 hours one way), walk along the trail to the summit of Mt Bogong. The walk begins at the Mount Creek picnic area. There are other walks in the area for those who don't feel up to the climb.
A great walk is the trail between the peaks of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling (2.5 hours one way). The countryside and views are truly amazing. For those that enjoyed 'The Man from Snowy River' the popular Craig's Hut is a short walk from the summit of Mt Stirling.
