Set high in the Great Dividing Range, the Omeo Region is one of Victoria’s best keep secrets where you can lose yourself in the experience.
Whether it’s the history of the high country, the promise of adventure, the wide open spaces and big sky, the magic of nature or the wonders of a white winter that attracts you, the Omeo Region has it all.
Feast your eyes on beautiful spellbinding vistas, fish or swim in the crystal clear rivers and High Country streams swirling from the mountain crevices, or merely laze away the day on the river bank with a picnic.
Shhhh, listen to the sounds of the bush, watch the wildflowers sway in the gentle breeze as the wild brumbies gallop past and keep an eye out for the wildlife as you take an alpine walk.
Absorb yourself in Australian folklore and local history as you recall the excitement of the gold mining era and explore historic huts, relics and ghost towns. See where the mountain cattlemen of old ran their stock and penned some of Australia’s best known poems.
Have a beer with the locals by the open fire at a local pub or meander around one of the many galleries, bookshops or wineries. Enjoy some old fashioned high country hospitality with good food and great coffee or stop by the country horse racing to back a winner.
