09 October 2020

9 October 2020:   The days are lengthening, the mountain is turning green, native wildflowers are sprouting and the birds are singing so it’s time to plan a ‘green season’ escape to explore scenic alpine Victoria.

From Saturday 31 October the mountain biking and walking trails progressively reopen.  Dust off your bike, pull out the walking shoes and enjoy the fresh air and views across Mt Buller and Mt Stirling and all the way to the valley below.  4WD vehicle access to the summer roads also resumes from 30 October.


The mountain crew is busy clearing and preparing the vast bike trail network for summer riding – including the 40km legendary Australian Alpine Epic trail – as well as shaping the beginner “Billy Buttons” track in the Mt Buller village and the rollercoaster village pump track ready to deliver summer fun for riders of all skill levels.

Take a stroll to the Mt Buller summit and check out the new Boggy Creek Reservoir that provides stunning sunset water views on the upper mountain. The Summit Nature Walk is open to walkers from 31 October. Vehicle access to the summit area on the Summit road also opens up that weekend. More...

Thank you for keeping to the trails and protecting the unique alpine environment. By leaving only footprints and taking only photographs together we can sustain the plants and animals that call this special place home.

Billy buttons on Mt Stirling

The beautiful trails at Mt Stirling are a bit of a closely guarded local's secret.  Escape the everyday and enjoy shaded walks beneath the tall mountain forest that gradually makes way to twisty snowgum glades as you climb on up to the alpine clearings above for wildflowers and regional views.  Popular for walkers, horse trail rides and just getting away from it all – make sure you spend a day on Stirling this summer! 
The Stirling Café opens on weekends (10am – 3pm) from 5 December to Easter and the barista coffee, homemade pastries and baked goods are worth the visit alone! 

After everything Victorians have been through this year roll on a relaxing summer, time out in nature, fresh air, freedom and simple pleasures of enjoying our beautiful ‘backyard’.  The resort is open NOW for regional Victorians and the gate is open and free.

As more details lock in and the summer plans (and COVID safety guidelines adapt) take shape we will keep you updated here.
