Great Walhalla Alpine Trail is a 41.4km, grade 4 One way hike located in Alpine National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 2 days to complete.


The Great Walhalla Alpine Trail follows the first 40 kilometre section of the Australian Alps Walking Track, one of the world’s great Alpine walks stretching 680 kilometres from Walhalla to Canberra.

Offering an abridged taste of the epic Australian Alpine Walking Track, the 40km Great Walhalla Alpine Trail links the historic mining township of Walhalla to the pristine snowgum environment of the Baw Baw National Park plateau and its nearby resort village. Hikers can choose a €˜downhill’ or €˜uphill’ end-to-end itinerary, enjoying a two-day journey through alpine plains alive with native wildflowers, twisted snowgums, towering mountain ash, and pre-historic myrtle beech.

Hikers will pass through the wonderland of geological formations found at Mushroom Rocks, see the ruins of Talbot Peak hut, cross mountain streams and wild rivers, pass through fern groves and, of course, get to know the timber and gold heritage of Walhalla.

Getting there

Walhalla: From Melbourne, the drive is approximately 2.5 hours via the Monash Freeway, the Princes Highway and the Moe-Walhalla Rd.
