All on of­fer at Mt Buller

North East Tourist News - - Mansfield & District -

BIKE rid­ing, orches­tra per­for­mances, fit­ness work­outs, fun runs and food fes­ti­vals – how­ever an eclec­tic mix that may sound, it’s all on of­fer on Mt Buller over the sum­mer hol­i­days.

Warm­ing up with the Vic­to­rian Grav­ity En­duro se­ries on De­cem­ber 7 and 8, Mt Buller boasts an in­cred­i­ble amount of cy­cling events, races, work­shops and trails over the next few months.

The En­duro se­ries is a per­fect start up race for those who would like to ex­pe­ri­ence com­pe­ti­tion at a less fran­tic pace, with 70 per cent of the cy­cling done on the flow­ing de­scend­ing trails, and just 30 per cent on the un­du­lat­ing tracks.

Fol­low­ing that is a weekend de­signed to hone in on your bike rid­ing skills, fit­ness and en­joy­ment with a spe­cialised MBT train­ing skills camp on Mt Buller over the weekend of De­cem­ber 20 and 21, with a sim­i­lar weekend tak­ing place early in the New Year with the Grav­ity Oz Sum­mer Camp.

Of course, not ev­ery­one is a moun­tain bike en­thu­si­ast, so for those who en­joy the strains of clas­si­cal mu­sic as it fil­ters through the snow gums, per­haps a visit to Mount Buller on Jan­uary 24 for the Cham­ber Mu­sic Sum­mer School Per­for­mance would be more ap­pro­pri­ate.

Or, if run­ning is more your style, there is the three day marathon Mt Buller Sky Run. Com­peti­tors tackle al­most 100 km of in­cred­i­ble alpine scenery, tak­ing in Craig’s Hut, the De­latite River, Howqua Gap and Mir­im­bah Park.

Start­ing on Fe­bru­ary 2, the Mt Buller Sky Run, for­merly known as the De­latite Dash, is in its fourth year and grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity with each com­pe­ti­tion.

A gourmet food and wine fes­ti­val on Sun­day, March 9, Pic­nic in the Park is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to sam­ple lo­cal food and wine fare while re­lax­ing on the banks of the De­latite River, en­joy­ing a glass of wine while mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment help you chill the day away.
