Winter in the Victorian Alps

Winter in the Victorian Alps

It's time to welcome the chilly embrace of winter.  It's such a beautiful season, so we thought we would give you a little run down on things to do in our beautiful region this winter. 

For all you snow enthusiasts, Falls Creek is calling your name! Grab your skis or snowboards and prepare to carve your way through the powdery slopes of this breathtaking alpine resort. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a snow rookie, Falls Creek has something for all skill levels. So strap on your gear, embrace the snowflakes, and let the mountains be your playground!

If you're more inclined to admire the winter wonderland from a cozy vantage point, fret not! Northeast Victoria has a multitude of charming towns that come alive during this season.

Venture into our lovely township of Mount Beauty where the vibrant autumn foliage gives way to picturesque views of white snowcapped mountains. Explore the quaint shops, sip on hot chocolate at the Mount Beauty Bakery, grab some divine treats from Tawonga Baker and experience the magic of winter in this idyllic town.  West Peak Pub has recently opened its new brewery and their Mountain Monk beer top notch.  It's well worth a visit this winter.  Don't just take our word for it, Traveller Magazine just named Mount Beauty Number 3 in their top 100 Emerging Destinations and Experiences in Australia.   We think we should have been number 1, but maybe we're biased. 

Or, take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque streets of Beechworth or Yackandandah, revelling in the historical charm and perhaps indulging in some scrumptious winter treats at a local café.  You could even enjoy a sip of warming whiskey from Backwoods Distillery in Yackandandah and find a beautiful woollen blanket at their new neighbour Stone Hill View 

For those seeking a touch of adventure, Mount Buffalo National Park is a must-visit destination. Lace-up your boots and embark on a snow-shoeing adventure through snow-dusted trails, leading you to breathtaking lookout points. The beauty of the park during winter is simply awe-inspiring, and we guarantee you'll leave with memories to cherish.

So, let the countdown begin! Winter is just around the corner, and we can't wait to share this enchanting season with you. Visit our store or jump online to explore our delightful Winter Candle Scents and bring the cozy ambience of Northeast Victoria into your home.

Remember, life is too short to stay indoors during winter. Embrace the chill, embrace the snow, and embrace the warmth of Northeast Victoria's winter wonderland!
