The High Country's stunning mountains, rivers and lakes are perfect for a mixture of fishing, adventure and relaxation. Year-round opportunities to fish in pristine alpine settings combine with village vibes to create a unique Victorian experience, no matter the season.

Brown trout, rainbow trout and Murray cod are popular targets which can be pursued with fly rod, lure or bait, from the shore or a boat.

In winter, hit the low altitude lakes for a wily trout or ski the slopes at alpine resorts. Return in the warmer months to wander the banks of a gin-clear stream or take in an inspired bushwalk or cycling trail.

Indulge the tastebuds and recharge at one of the many celebrated restaurants and cool climate wineries, often with boutique accommodation nearby.

Discover the vibrant craft brewery scene, immerse yourself in history and fill your basket at provedores and farm gates, all packed with local produce and delights.
