Set high in the Great Dividing Range, the Omeo Region is one of Victoria's best keep secrets where you can lose yourself in the experience.
Whether it's the history of the high country, the promise of adventure, the wide open spaces and big sky, the magic of nature or the wonders of a white winter that attracts you, the Omeo Region has it all.
Feast your eyes on beautiful spellbinding vistas, fish or swim in the crystal clear rivers and High Country streams swirling from the mountain crevices, or merely laze away the day on the river bank with a picnic.
Shhhh, listen to the sounds of the bush, watch the wildflowers sway in the gentle breeze as the wild brumbies gallop past and keep an eye out for the wildlife as you take an alpine walk.
Absorb yourself in Australian folklore and local history as you recall the excitement of the gold mining era and explore historic huts, relics and ghost towns. See where the mountain cattlemen of old ran their stock and penned some of Australia's best known poems.
Have a beer with the locals by the open fire at a local pub or meander around one of the many galleries, bookshops or wineries. Enjoy some old fashioned high country hospitality with good food and great coffee or stop by the country horse racing to back a winner.
Have an adventure, challenge yourself and explore the wilderness on the walking tracks, touring routes, horse, four-wheel drive or motorbike. Go camping and see how many constellations you can find in the field of stars. Go canoeing on still or white water, fish the trout-filled mountain streams or fall into the depths of pure water and cool off from the summer sunshine.
Enjoy the wonders of a white winter with ski runs to rival any in Australia or soak up the white blanketed landscape with the ghostly snow gums telling stories of long past.
Far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday, rest, relax and reinvigorate. Awaken the senses, relish the tranquillity and silence, listen to the birds and feel the fresh country breeze across your skin.
Whether you're a family, couple or single and whether you're looking for adventure, fun, getting back to nature or soaking up the High Country flavours, whether you have a day, a weekend or a lifetime, you can lose yourself in the Omeo Region at any time of year.
