Winter’s here in southeast Australia. The Alpine National Park has its mantle of snow and the crowds in the valleys are heading through to the ski-fields of the Victorian Alps.
But it’s still possible to take some time to ignore the through traffic – to walk and bike in the foothills. At the base of Mt Bogong you’ll get to see Mountain Creek, experience the constant drip of dew off leaves in the forest, and enjoy the heavier winter atmosphere – not to mention great frosts in the morning.
It’s one of my favourite times of year in the foothills.
