Brief – Day 2
Day 2 – approximately 10.5km (moderate – challenging)
Time on track – approximately 6 hours 30 minutes including breaks (not including the Nature Walk and summit at Mt Buller) Nature Walk and climb to Mt Buller summit are an additional 3.3km (approximately). It takes about 1 hour 30 minutes.
Another great day of hiking is awaiting you today, destination 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 waiting for you at the end of it.
After you check into the lodge and settle in, head off for a stroll along the Nature Walk up to the summit of Mt Buller, which sits at 1805m above sea level. You will enjoy amazing mountain views along the Nature Walk and from the summit.
No cooking tonight. Dinner will be in one of the local restaurants. You can just sit back, relax and enjoy Mt Buller hospitality while you’re reminiscing about the last two amazing days in the Victorian High Country.
