The Alpine National Park forms a protected area that covers almost all of Australia’s high country. It’s one of eight Australian Alps national parks that are managed co-operatively to ensure that Australia’s mainland alpine and sub-alpine environments are protected consistently and that policies and guidelines across State and territory borders are compatible. Australia’s Alps are vitally important as a source of water in our dry continent. Most of the major rivers of south-eastern Australia have their sources there. Alpine National Park is the state’s largest at 646,000 hectares and protects our highest mountains and varied alpine environments. Extensive snowfields are the primary winter attraction; the warmer months bring stunning wildflower displays and opportunities for bushwalks and four wheel driving. Enjoy varied and beautiful summer wildflowers, and discover a whole range of other plants and animals, all adapted to cope with climatic extremes. The Alpine National Park has the greatest range of flora and fauna of any national park in Victoria.
