  • Dandongadale Falls- A little known fact is that Victoria’s longest falls with 255m drop is right here on our doorstop. A 4WD may be required along with a fair hike depending on the season
  • Lake Buffalo- Along with fishing and canoeing, waterskiing is allowed here.
  • Fire Trails- Time, a map, and a dirtbike, horse or 4WD and you can travel from here to outer Melbourne, the coast, Mount Kosciusko or anywhere in between – Just make sure you are prepared, every year someone falls afoul of nature in Victoria’s High country.
