Wild Rivers, Wild Flowers: 6-day Tour
Spring is a magnificent time in the High Country as the winter snowdrifts cling to the south side slopes, covering the diverse alpine flora with an iced memory of the Winter before.
The warming months of November and December are something not to miss; open plains of flowering mint bush, the newly formed spheres of billy buttons, an early everlasting, and the delicate lavender colour of the Bogong Daisy, which is unique to this Alpine National Park. The High Plains are truly awash with colour at this time of year, offering a chance to explore the unique and diverse Alpine ecology of the High Country that we love so much.
Our Wild Rivers, Wild Flowers packhorse tour visits spectacular mountain tops, wild rivers, historic huts, and secluded camps. There is a mountain of experiences jammed into four days, as you ride the best of the High Country on a journey that is sure to inspire and refresh. Meander across Pretty Valley and the sweet, fragrant pastures of the Bogong brumby; canter to the top of Mount Fainter for spectacular views of Mount Feathertop across the deep cut of the wild West Kiewa river; and ride on to camp at Bogong Jack’s Hideout, where stories are shared around a crackling campfire and the stars above are endless.
