- including the story of Ned Kelly; explore museums and art galleries; indulge in our local bakeries and restaurants; and be blown away at scenic lookouts and views.
Enjoy the autumn colours the region is famous for in autumn, and gorgeous spring blossoms later in the year. Take in all the sights, discover hidden gems, sample local produce and experience everything our unique region has to offer.
The lodge is also the perfect place to kick back and relax, with stunning views of Mt Bogong from the expansive deck, and a shared lounge and dining area with a cosy wood fire and licensed bar. We even have an inground pool for the warmer months.
