Wonnangatta Drive. A hidden valley & a deep mystery.
Discover the history and heritage of the High Country on this tour through rugged bushland and mountain scenery in Victoria's Alpine National Park. Here, dramatic cliff-top lookouts offer panoramic views, and history comes alive amongst old mining town ruins, cattleman's huts and at the Wonnangatta Station site, the scene of a still unsolved murder mystery.
Allow 2 - 3 days for this epic 4WD adventure. Travelling among through Victoria's High Country landscapes, from Mountain Ash forests and sub-alpine vegetation to rugged escarpments and grassy snow plains, one of the scenic highlights of the journey is the steep valley descent into the secluded Wonnangatta Valley.
See the 1860s goldfield towns of Talbotville and Grant, and take time out exploring the area’s mountainous beauty, with lookouts offering breathtaking alpine views and walking tracks.
Short tracks give easy access to Guys Hut and Howitt Hut, built by cattlemen early last century, while a longer walk offers outstanding views of Bryce Gorge, Conglomerate Falls and the 100m high Pieman Falls.
