Set high in the Great Dividing Range, the Omeo Region is one of Victoria's best kept secrets; beautiful vistas, high country hospitality, adventure activities and a region rich in history and heritage.
The Alpine High Country is where you can discover National Parks, the Australian Alps walking track, crystal clear rivers, historic huts, camping spots, horse riding, fly fishing, galleries, wineries, golf courses and all that nature has to offer.

It takes you from the top of Victoria's High Country, down to the magnificent lakes and coastal country of East Gippsland.

Meander through the historic towns within the region, and enjoy good high country food at the cafes and pubs. Take your time, enjoy some of the local produce and make sure that you stay a while to experience the High Country difference. Explore the towns and villages of the Alpine High Country.
