The Delatite River Trail will take you from Mt Buller to Mirimbah Park or vice-versa, then returns via the same route. If you choose to undertake this as a one way hike, you will need to organise a vehicle shuttle from either Mount Buller or Mirimbah Park. Each leg of the hike requires 12 log bridge crossings and some smaller creek crossings.
Commencing at the Mt Buller Village, drive to the Box Corner, and park your vehicle. Cross the road and walk through the gate and storage compound. At the sign posted junction turn left onto the Delatite River Trail.
At the intersection turn left onto Woody’s Shortcut, which is shorter but steeper and more rocky, or continue ahead on a flatter but longer section of trail.
Follow the river trail along its length to Mirimbah Park before retracing your steps to Box Corner and the at the Mt Buller Village.
About the region
The Alpine National Park is a national park located in the Central Highlands and Alpine regions of Victoria, Australia. The 646,000-hectare national park is located northeast of Melbourne. It is the largest National Park in Victoria, and covers much of the higher areas of the Great Dividing Range in Victoria, including Victoria's highest point, Mount Bogong at 1,986 metres and the associated subalpine woodland and grassland of the Bogong High Plains. The park's north-eastern boundary is along the border with New South Wales, where it abuts the Kosciuszko National Park.
From Melbourne, take the Hume Fwy/National Highway M31, C382, Goulburn Valley Hwy/B340, B300 and Mt Buller Rd/C320 to Summit Rd in Mount Buller. Continue on Summit Road Drive to the Buller Village. The trail head is opposite Georges along Athletes Walk. View in google Maps
