Just returned from three days in the amazing High Country in Victoria (the Alpine Way). Ate enough local, gourmet produce to feed a small nation, stayed at splendid accommodations, went for a bushwalk, watched other people abseil, threw snowballs on the road to Mt Hotham - blue sky, crisp white snow all around, and met a pack of great dogs that were whooping and hollering to get moving. The sled dogs took us for a little ride around the snow at Dinner Plain, a beautiful high country location with lovely buildings that fit the landscape, excellent restaurant and day spa.
One day was devoted to white water rafting on the mighty Mitta Mitta River, something that wasn't on my bucket (handbag) list, but I did it, and it was a sensational experience - as most things are when you have experts looking after you. Whoohoo! More about that in the magazine later on. We live in a beautiful country, no doubt about that. Who's been white water rafting? And where did you go?
These are my recommendations and if you want to discover some really good things in Victoria, while there's still snow or maybe for when spring hits the slopes - enjoy these websites - I've stayed there, played there and ate the food!
