Enjoy the great escape
NESTLED in the fertile Kiewa Valley at the foot of Mount Bogong, Mount Beauty is a mountain biking hub for visiting adventurers and home to local farms, wineries and breweries.
One of the country’s leading mountain biking destinations, the Big Hill Mountain Bike Park is located on the edge of town and regularly hosts races, including the National Mountain Bike Championships.
Choose from numerous cross country and downhill tracks, or just make your own fun on the trails in the nearby forest and national parks.
Or take a pleasant ride on sealed tracks that meander along the Kiewa River and Mount Beauty Pondage, a comfortable cycling experience for all ages and experience levels.
Hit the back country roads and harvest the bounty of the fertile Kiewa Valley, stocking up on fresh produce from welcoming farm gates or combine premium sparkling wines with a gourmet lunch in stunning surrounds at any number of award winning, family owned wineries.
Fill your lungs with clear alpine air and hike through the Alpine National Park or explore the High Plains on horseback, camp out with the family, and enjoy tranquil fishing in the Kiewa River.
The fun doesn’t stop when the cold weather arrives, bring your skis and boards to conquer the runs at nearby Falls Creek, staying in the village’s luxury alternatives to onmountain accommodation.
Take in the magnificent views of Mount Bogong and the Mount Beauty village from Tawonga Gap, and see amazing scenery on the 230-kilometre Bogong Alpine Way (part of the Great Alpine Road), looping through Bright, Mount Beauty, Falls Creek and over Mount Hotham.
No matter what time of the year, there is always a memorable experience to enjoy at Mount Beauty.
