This peaceful, charming town offers fresh alpine air, spectacular views and absolute relaxation but there is also plenty of action & excitement to keep the whole family entertained! Harrietville offers something for everyone whether you yearn for adventure or an escape from the hustle & bustle of city life. Many events are also hosted in town year round.
Perhaps you could stroll down to the old swimming hole for a dip and a BBQ of fresh fish you've caught. 'Tronoh Lake', just a short stroll from the property has a jetty for fishing & dipping your toes in as well as a pontoon for the adventurous swimmer or you could just find a private spot along the crisp, clear Ovens river.
Make your way back past the ice creamery for a home made ice cream and a play at the park. While your at it check out the historical museum before stopping off at one of the cafes for a fantastic coffee. As the sun sets over the mountains, relax on the balcony of one of two hotels and sip a glass of local wine.
Looking for something a little more adventurous, take the world famous walk to Mt Feathertop. Or maybe one of the more gentle paths?
