Glamp­ing

En­joy a gourmet pic­nic around a fire pit be­fore camp­ing – in lux­ury – amid the vines from which your wel­come bot­tle of wine has been pressed at Cofield Wines in Wah­gunya. Tents have king­sized beds, board games, fish­ing gear and the most im­por­tant camp­fire in­gre­di­ent of all: marsh­mal­lows. Visit vic­to­rias-high coun­try.com.au.

Pic­nic

Pack a ham­per and head for one of Mount Hotham’s many van­tage points, all within walk­ing dis­tance of the vil­lage (mthotham. com.au). One of the most beau­ti­ful is lo­cated at the Sil­ver Brumby Hut, built in 1992 as a tem­po­rary prop for the film The Sil­ver Brumby. In sum­mer it’s lush with wild­flow­ers and set to the sound of Swindlers Creek.

Swag tour

Ex­plore alpine Aus­tralia and its rich pi­o­neer­ing his­tory dur­ing a guided tour with Aussie High Coun­try Ad­ven­tures (0488 040 308). En­counter the spec­tac­u­lar coun­try­side of Vic­to­ria’s High Coun­try and end the day by set­ting up camp, eat­ing a fireside meal and sleep­ing be­neath the stars.
