Mansfield Local Area
Just a scenic 2-hour drive from Melbourne, the country town of Mansfield feels like it is a million miles away from city life. With mountains dominating the horizon and a community that includes many of the original cattlemen’s families, there is no place that embodies the spirit and tradition of the High Country more than Mansfield does.
In the colder months Mansfield is a great starting point for visitors to the region’s winter playground, with Mount Buller only 45 km away. Mount Buller has a great variety of skiing terrains from beginner’s runs to some of the most challenging runs in the country and is Victoria’s largest ski resort.
Nearby Mount Stirling provides excellent cross country skiing, with many well-marked trails taking you through beautiful sheltered forest of alpine ash on the lower slopes and snow gum woodlands higher up towards the open plains on the summit.
In the summer months the mountains have plenty to keep you amused. Seek out the walking trails that lead you across the plains of wildflowers to the summit. These trails offer views of Lake Eildon, the Howqua Valley, Mount Buffalo and the peaks of the Alpine National Park.
Mansfield Zoo is one of North East Victoria’s hidden secrets, with a large collection of exotic and native animals on 30 acres of picturesque parkland featuring lovely views across the Delatite Valley to Mt Buller. Hand or spade feed many of the animals as you wander, including monkeys!
High Country Maze
High Country Maze consists of six acres of gardens, including two mazes and ‘maze-like’ walled gardens. With something new to discover around every corner, the main maze has a gnome hunt that is a challenge for the young and the young at heart.
