Cobungra: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Alpine National Park


The Alpine National Park stretches from central Gippsland all the way to the New South Wales border where it adjoins Kosciuszko National Park. Within the park are some of Australia's most stunning alpine landscapes, including mountain peaks, escarpments and grassy high plains.

There are plenty of opportunities for bushwalking, from hikes to plunging waterfalls or the summits of Victoria's highest peaks - Mount Feathertop, Mount Bogong and Mount Howitt - to the network of tracks among the Snow Gums, summer wildflowers and historic mountain huts of the Bogong High Plains.

Other activities include cross-country skiing (with downhill skiing at adjoining resorts), camping, canoeing, cycling, four-wheel driving and horse riding in the warmer seasons.

Aboriginal Traditional Owners
Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Through their cultural traditions, the Bidawal, Dhudhuroa, Gunaikurnai, Jaithmathang, Taungurong and Nindi-Ngudjam Ngarigu Monero identify the Alpine National Park as their Traditional Country.

Cobungra: Events

Altitude 5000 - Dinner Plain Sleddog Challenge


The Annual Dinner Plain Sleddog Challenge event showcases the top dogs of sled dog racing in Australia and is unique in being the first Australian snow-based race of its kind.

More than 75 mushers (dog team drivers) and in excess of 350 sled dogs are expected to compete at this year's event. The race is held over two days.

This year, spectators will see tow, three, four and six dog teams supplemented by the exhilarating eight dog team class. If your plans are to attend this popular weekend you are definitely in for a unique experience.

Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes are the most common breeds of dogs raced. Both breeds are visually and physically powerful competitors given snow is a part of their natural habitat. Siberian Huskies are extremely quick on their paws, while the Alaskan Malamutes are known for their endurance over longer distances.

Grab your camera, winter woollies and rug up for this exciting and exhilarating high country event exclusive to Dinner Plain.

Cobungra: Travel Tips

Omeo Region Visitor Information Centre


Set high in the Great Dividing Range, the Omeo Region is one of Victoria's best keep secrets where you can lose yourself in the experience.

Whether it's the history of the high country, the promise of adventure, the wide open spaces and big sky, the magic of nature or the wonders of a white winter that attracts you, the Omeo Region has it all.

Feast your eyes on beautiful spellbinding vistas, fish or swim in the crystal clear rivers and High Country streams swirling from the mountain crevices, or merely laze away the day on the river bank with a picnic.

Shhhh, listen to the sounds of the bush, watch the wildflowers sway in the gentle breeze as the wild brumbies gallop past and keep an eye out for the wildlife as you take an alpine walk.

Absorb yourself in Australian folklore and local history as you recall the excitement of the gold mining era and explore historic huts, relics and ghost towns. See where the mountain cattlemen of old ran their stock and penned some of Australia's best known poems.

Have a beer with the locals by the open fire at a local pub or meander around one of the many galleries, bookshops or wineries. Enjoy some old fashioned high country hospitality with good food and great coffee or stop by the country horse racing to back a winner.
