Riding Dinner Plain
The Great Alpine Road is the highest bitumen road in Australia and rewards you with spectacular views on this ascent. Not to mention some dining treats and time to relax on your arrival into Dinner Plain Village.
After an initial steep 400m ascent out of Omeo the road is undulating past Cobungra Station before another long steep climb from the Victoria River to the alpine plateau. Approximately 20km from Omeo, plan a rest stop and take in the view across to Australia’s highest mountain at the Mt Kosciuszko lookout. You can also enjoy the views of the Snowy Mountains before heading on to Dinner Plain.
Along the way take your mind off the climb and enjoy the changing landscape from the alpine ash to snowgum forest and heathland.
