Dinner Plain is a favourite for many who retreat to this gorgeous setting to escape the heat of Summer, indulge in spa and massage treatments at the indoor/outdoor spa (open Winter and January), to enjoy the many snow sport options or to simply experience walking through this snow-covered village on a moonlit night, to one of the village’s restaurants or cafes.
This village is also a great base for those wishing to hike the 37km Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing which is a 2 night, 3 day hike between the Falls Creek and Mt Hotham Alpine Resorts. Bookings are required for the tent platforms at both Cope and Dibbin’s huts along this trail that follows the Australian Alps Walking Track across alpine plains, snowgum woodlands, and sparkling alpine streams. The 12.5km (one way) Cobungra Ditch walk is an interpretive walk following the course of an abandoned water race for mining in 1884. It is best undertaken with a car left at the opposite end, as both ends of the track are accessed by the Great Alpine Road.
