Victoria High Country Getaway Rides
Victoria Australia

It’s an ancient landscape, some 400 million years old, with lines of pink granite boulders trickling out of the imposing Mt. Ned and grassy ridge lines sprinkled with snowy white gums. Indigenous history says that the Bundarrah Valley was a woman’s place, although white man history was predominantly of cattlemen. Gold was never found in this valley, but a short ride away, over a ridge line that takes you along the Mitta Mitta river, plenty of the precious metal was once found. Omeo is the closest town, infamous for it's chequered history of lawlessness due to it's isolated location. Gold miners and their followers came in search of fortune and cattlemen looked for greener pastures. The riding country is varied as we ride up onto the Bogong High Plains which were once dotted with the brown and white Herefords, and at one stage sheep.

The Bogong High Plains at about 4,800 ft elevation are large expanses of alpine grasses and heaths dotted with color during the wildflower season. On a clear day you can see forever, across the plains to the mountains. With wonderful views of Mount Feathertop and Mount Bogong you will see Fainters and Niggerheads and further into the distance, the ridge lines of the NSW Alps . In winter it’s covered by metres of snow though heavy snowfalls do fall unexpectedly in summer months. And that sure makes a riding trip interesting!
