The Delatite River Trail is a 22km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Alpine National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 8hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The Delatite River Trail will take you from Mount 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 Mount 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 Mount Buller Village.
