Brief – Day 2
Day 2 – approximately 10.5km
Time on track – approximately 6 hours 30 minutes including breaks
Another great day of hiking is awaiting you today. Destination, Mt Stirling’s sister mountain, Mt Buller.
With camp packed and breakfast done, you will descend from Mt Stirling stopping for a snack at one of high country huts, before tackling a climb up Corn Hill.
Heading up Corn Hill, you will enjoy some stunning views across many peaks of the high country.
There’s a nice spot on the other side of Corn Hill with a picnic table and benches, perfect for lunch.
With bellies full, you will head up to Mt Buller and your accommodation for the night. Yes, it is uphill, but the track is not steep and there is a nice cosy lodge and shower waiting for you.
Once you’ve check into the lodge and settled in, you will have a choice to either head up to the summit for sunset or relax at the lodge.
No cooking tonight. Dinner will be in one of the local restaurants. You can just sit back, relax and enjoy Mt Buller’s hospitality while you’re reminiscing about the last two amazing days in the Victorian High Country.
Elevation at highest point: approx. 1730m ASL (1861m ASL if Mt Buller’s summit is reached)
Total ascent: approx. 420m
Total descent: approx. 460m
