Mount Beauty

Located in the Kiewa Valley at the foot of Mount Bogong, Mount Beauty is a popular mountain biking hub and home to renowned local wineries, breweries and farms.

The Big Hill Mountain Bike Park, one of the country's leading mountain biking destinations, sits on the edge of town and regularly hosts high profile events, including the National Mountain Bike Championships. Choose from cross country and downhill trails, or tear up the tracks in the nearby forest and national park.

Surrounded by farm gates loaded with the fresh locally-grown produce, Mount Beauty also boasts a handful of wineries working the distinct terroir. Combine French fare and pinot noir at Bogong Estate, enjoy premium sparkling wines with a gourmet lunch at Annapurna Wines, or change tack and try out the craft beers at Sweetwater Brewing Company.

The stunning Alpine National Park offers excellent hiking and mountain biking and some of the freshest air you'll breathe. The High Plains and their historic huts are best explored on horseback in honour of the courageous and skilled cattlemen who once roamed the High Country.

Mount Beauty's proximity to the ski resort of Falls Creek also makes it a great place for wintery weekends. Base yourself at one of the village's luxury alternatives to on-mountain accommodation and hit the slopes during the day.

Magnificent views of Mount Bogong and the Mount Beauty village can be seen from Tawonga Gap, and the scenery is increasingly breathtaking on the 230-kilometre Bogong Alpine Way (part of the Great Alpine Road), looping through Bright, Mount Beauty, Falls Creek and over Mount Hotham.

Mount Beauty is almost 400 kilometres or four hours from Melbourne on the Hume Highway.
