Walks in Alpine Shire, Victoria

Bright walks

Canyon walk (3.5km riverside loop walk)
A must-do walk if you're staying in the lovely town of Bright, easily accessible from the town. Follow the Ovens River traversing areas of scenic, historical and natural value. Popular in summer (watch the people on lilos floating by!) and in Autumn when Bright's deciduous trees are at their very best.

You may also wish to explore the Bright Waterwise Garden in the centre of town with this map created by local volunteers (Upper Ovens Landcare group).

Mount Buffalo walks

The stunning Mount Buffalo National Park is a great place to base yourself with a huige numebr fo walks to choose from to suit a range of fitness and abilities. 

Chalwell Galleries walk, Mt Buffalo
(2.5km return)
Beautiful scenery and rock scrambling adventures await those who undertake this brilliant short walk by Lake Catani.This walk is great for people with a sense of adventure, and many young children will enjoy the challenge - however it's not advisable for those with mobility challenges or who do not feel comfortable in small, tight places! 

Rollasons Falls walk, Mt Buffalo (2.5km return)
A gorgeous walk down through a Eucalypt forest to the two-tiered Rollasons Falls and swim hole on beautiful Mount Buffalo.

Myrtleford walks

Myrtleford Mosaic Trail (also known as the Ovens River loop walk, 5.3km)
Thanks to two local artists this lovely walk along the Ovens River is home to 70 mosaics, hidden along it (probably more since this map was created!) How many can you find?

Mount Beauty walks and Tawonga South

Pebble Beach river walk, Mount Beauty (4km return)
This easy, flat walk follows a sealed track along the eastern bank of the lovely Kiewa River. Beginning 100m north of the Visitor Centre the track becomes more shaded as you approach the 'beach' - a wide, inviting stretch of the river popular with swimmers during the warmer month. Pack river shoes as well as your swimwear if you want to cool off, as the rocks are slippery (and painful!) to walk on. See walk link above for photos, map and more information.
