Alpine National Park

Victoria's Alpine National Park, at 646,000 ha the State's largest, protects our highest mountains and varied alpine environments and with adjoining national parks in NSW and the ACT, it forms a protected area that covers almost all of Australia's high country.

Extensive snowfields are the primary winter attraction; the warmer months bring stunning wildflower displays and opportunities for bushwalks and four wheel driving. The 655 km Australian Alps Walking Track also traverses the Alps from Walhalla in Central Gippsland to Canberra.

In Wellington, the Alpine National Park is accessed via Licola or Dargo and incorporates many wonderful visitor attractions. Camping, 4x4, fishing, bushwalking, deer hunting, canoeing, trail bike riding are popular activities conducted within the Park.

The Alpine National Park is also home to 12 cattlemens huts that are available for public viewing and are located adjacent to the Tamboritha Rd near Licola.

Further East, the Park is accessible from Dargo via the Wonnangatta River and Wonnangatta Rd or via the famous “billy goat bluff” 4x4 track that interconnects with the Bennison High Plains Rd.

Winter activities include Nordic skiing.

Enjoy varied and beautiful summer wildflowers, and discover a whole range of other plants and animals, all adapted to cope with climatic extremes. The Alpine National Park has the greatest range of flora and fauna of any national park in Victoria.

The Alpine National Park is one of the eight Australian Alps national parks that are managed co-operatively to ensure that Australia's mainland alpine and sub-alpine environments are protected consistently and that policies and guidelines across State and territory borders are compatible.
