One of Reg and my favorite ways to escape the summer heat is to head to the mountains.Many people are unaware that some of those luxury Australian ski resorts are very affordable in mid summer. In fact Reg and I found ourselves the only guest in sheer luxury at Falls Creek, at a time when it was at its most beautiful, the mountains covered with alpine flowers.
To travel to Falls Creek you take in the spectacular views across the Bogong High Plains and Kiewa Valley.
Make the holiday lay back if you wish as there are indoor swimming pools and spas in most of the resorts, or enjoy an action-packed calendar of activities and events. Reg and I hiked all over the mountains and I painted the cattleman's huts.
Try mountain biking (both lift-accessed and cross country), road cycling, hiking/walking, scenic chairlift rides, basketball, tennis, horse riding, fishing, a skate ramp, boating, canoeing/kayaking and much more...
Nearby at Howman's Gap tackle the rock climbing wall, a high ropes course and a giant swing.
If you want to slow things down a little - try, pilates, take a guided tour of the Cattlemen's Huts, or a sunset picnic at Mt McKay.
Plus this summer there's a host of exciting events and activities to keep you entertained including the Big Fella Festival, Billy Cart Derby,Open Air Cinema and the Victorian Mile High Dragon Boat Championships.
