Harrietville is the gateway village to the stunning Alpine National Park in Victoria's High Country and offers a host of adrenaline-pumping adventure activities and the fresh bounty of local farms and gourmet producers.
Use Harrietville and its wide range of accommodation as a base to explore the Alps year-round, from skiing and snowboarding at Mount Hotham and Falls Creek in winter, to hiking Mount Feathertop amid wildflowers in spring.
Dedicate enough time to explore the green and lush village. Follow walking and bicycle trails along the Ovens River, and enjoy a relaxing picnic, barbecue or swim at the beautiful Tronoh dredge hole, a reminder of the gold mining history and now the village's swimming lake.
Gourmet local producers offer a range of produce that reflects the region's rich harvest. Pick your own berries from local farms and catch a fish in the surrounding waterways, or opt for a guaranteed catch in the trout farm.
Harrietville is 350 kilometres from Melbourne, or just under four hours along the Hume Highway and the Great Alpine Road.
