Are you ready to experience The Great Alpine Way?
The Great Alpine Road
Wangaratta to Metung
339 km/211 miles, about 5 hours
Wind your way along Victoria’s Great Alpine Road, from Wangaratta in the north-east across to Metung on the jaw-droppingly beautiful Gippsland Lakes.
The 339-kilometre adventure along Australia’s highest year-round accessible sealed road leads you through diverse landscapes, from lofty mountain ranges, down plunging valleys, into lush forests, and past rolling vineyards to sparkling coastal waterways.
Dine on fresh local produce and award-winning cool climate wines, or catch your own lunch in a mountain stream or lake as you go.
Make the journey year-round, whether you prefer warm weather walking, cycling and camping or high-adrenaline adventure opportunities and perennially popular wintertime snow action. Whatever the season, breathtaking views, unforgettable scenery and warm welcomes in the villages are guaranteed.
Travelling this route in reverse can take you from Gippsland north to Bairnsdale, then diverting west from Omeo to Mt Hotham or Dinner Plain.
