Escape to the Country
Escape to the Country
Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and take a refreshing getaway to the Victorian High Country.
Just two hours north of the Melbourne CBD, uncover the boutique town of Mansfield, where hidden gems scatter your path and a whole new world of experiences await.
As winter approaches, the region prepares to transform into a field of white. The iconic Mount Buller is just a short drive from the town of Mansfield and has all the makings of the ideal getaway to the snow. Whether you want to hit the slopes on a board or skis, throw a snowball, zoom down the mountain on a toboggan or build a snowman, there is something to appeal to all ages and abilities.
The warmer months make for perfect vineyard wandering or for those a little more adventurous, a hike through the state wonder, the Alpine National Park. Home to 10 of the 11 highest mountains in the state, the park will lead you from dense wilderness to raging rivers, sheer cliffs and vast plains carpeted with wildflowers.
Year-round events bring the region to life with highlights including the Mansfield High Country Festival, the Man from Snowy River Bush Festival and Bright’s Autumn Festival, just another reason to visit.
Dubbed the ‘regional breadbasket’, fresh meat, cheese, fish, fresh produce and olives are in abundance in country Victoria. With a farm to plate philosophy, you’re promised fresh cuts of beef from the paddock, vegetables straight from the soil or fruit picked from the tree as menus shift with the seasons.
When dining out, meals are always perfectly paired with cool climate wines that are sourced from one of the eight diverse wine regions that call the High Country home. Wine is a way of life here and travellers can explore award-winning cellar doors with everything from Prosecco and Chardonnay to Shiraz and Muscat.
Set on 35 acres of bushland on the banks of Lake Eildon, Mansfield Country Resort is the perfect base to explore all the region has to offer.
Suitable for couples or families, Mansfield Country Resort offers modern and comfortable self-contained 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, as well as a range of resort facilities including state of the art swimming pool, spa and sauna areas, mini golf course, playground, games room, tennis and squash courts, boat ramp, fishing piers and kayaks.
Boasting wide open spaces and resort facilities for all the family to enjoy, Mansfield Country Resort is within easy reach of the High Country’s highlights.
