Highlights of Mount Buffalo National Park

Beautiful Bright, Mount Buffalo and boutique wineries

A fabulous weekend of food, wine and walking in Victoria's High Country based in the charming town of Bright, which is an easy drive from Albury airport and around three and a half hours from Melbourne.  Three fantastic days including two hikes on trails in the stunning Mount Buffalo National Park and a gentle stroll through the vineyards of the Ovens Valley. Delicious Italian-style dinners matched to excellent wines from the area, and gourmet al fresco picnic lunches. Enjoy a cooking demonstration with famous local Italian chef Patrizia Simone and meet the family behind the Ringer Reef winery. Choose where to stay from an amazing selection of local accommodation and savour an unmissable sunset dinner on the highest point of Mount Buffalo. This long weekend could form part of an extended visit exploring the highlights of beautiful Victoria.

"Thank you both for making our weekend of hiking and other activities such a success.  Your attention to detail was exemplary and the assistance of your various helpers in the culinary and wine growing areas was most appropriate and of a very high standard. Your walk was certainly at the top end of any walking tours we have done over the years in Victoria and Tasmania.  Congratulations!"  Carmel and Jeremy Frost

Accommodation

This weekend you have the choice of where to stay and you can book and pay for rooms directly with the accommodation, and here we have more details of all the places we are recommending in the area. You could of course book other hotels further afield but we would not be able to offer free transfers and you would need your own transport to get to and from Bright.

Why not take a little longer and spend some time exploring north east Victoria?  We have more ideas on what to see and do in our beautiful and historic part of Australia.
