Dinner Plain Attractions

Walks and Bush Trails
• There are easy family day walks or the more challenging bush trails. With over 15 km of walks your choices range from walks around the village, a guided walk to Mount Tabletop or a cross-country trail to Mount Hotham, 11 kms away. from around the village. The walking season usually occurs between early November until late April. Outside this period winter and early spring, it is usually snow covered or too wet. Following are a selection of walks with many other possibilities to choose from:
  • Hotham - Dinner Plain ‘Ski’ Trail • 10 km one way • Starting at Dinner Plain Village and finishing at the Hotham General Store this trail is never far from the Great Alpine Road. The walk meanders through snow gum woodland and open snow plains.
  • Mount Tabletop • 10 km return • Mount Tabletop is a distinctive flat plateau linked to the Great Dividing Range by a low ridge. In this untracked area of the Dargo River, there is a distinct feeling of isolation. From JB Plain, walk (follow the old fence line) south across the Plains for approximately 0.5 km. From here the route is marked by orange triangular markers. After crossing small snow plains and snow gum woodland the route drops down to Tabletop Creek then follows a long ridge up to the plateau. The track is marked to a rocky outcrop just below the summit. Return by the same route.
  • Carmichael Falls • 2 km return • The walk starts at the sign post n the Dinner Plain (4WD) track directly south of the Dinner Plain Village. the track leads to a lookout over picturesque falls among the snow gums. DO NOT LEAVE HE TRACK OR APPROACH THE CLIFF.
  • Precipice Plain • 9 km return • Walk or bike ride along the Dinner Plain Track to a lookout across the remote Dargo Valley.
  • Fitzy's Circus • This short walk take you past some of Diner Plains unique architecture.
  • Oritey's • Stretch your legs out around Oritey's - go through the gate and follow the orange markers. Look out for the Alpine Orites (a small ‘heathy’ shrub) common in snow gum woodland, chiefly among rocks.
  • Dinner Plain Loop • This loop takes you past snow gums and wildflowers. Part of the Dinner Plain Loop is named after Alice Mansfield who shared her love and keen observations of Mount Buffalo with many early tourists to the area and remains one of the Alps most famous women. For a shorter walk, follow Vera Houghton - return to the Village via the Appian Way.

The average fit person can walk approximately 3 kilometres per hour, although extra time must be given for steep climbs, taking photographs and rest stops. When bush walking,  observe minimal impact guidelines.


Weather conditions can change rapidly in alpine areas. Snowfalls and blizzards can be experienced any time of the year.

Be prepared and ensure you have the following:
  • wind and waterproof jackets
  • warm clothing - hats, gloves and strong footwear
  • maps and compass
  • first aid kit
  • always let someone know where you are going, before you go!
