Dinner Plain

Riding Dinner Plain

Climb out of Omeo past Cobungra Station on the Great Alpine Road, taking note to grab a breather at the Kosciuszko Lookout 20kms along the way. The climb is steep to start; a 400m ascent followed by undulating road and another long steep climb from the Victoria River to the alpine plateau.   Climb through the changing landscape of alpine ash, snowgum forest and heathland. Only 12kms from Hotham, picturesque Dinner Plain village is a top spot to stop! Spend the night, recharge your batteries and tackle the Hotham climb the following day.

Cycling Inform Ride Tips

The longest of the Peaks, so ensure you have enough hydration and nutrition to last the duration. The climb has many flat and downhill sections as well as some long sections of sustained climbing. The road is heavy where you’ll need to ride an easier gear because of the road surface.
