A Unique Alpine Village Nestled in the Victorian Alps

Dinner Plain is the perfect place for a country escape, surrounded by pristine nature and endless adventure opportunities.

Dinner Plain is located just 15 minutes from Mt Hotham, and is a truly individual village filled with rustic Australian charm. It is an ideal mountain get-away any time of the year particularly in winter when the Alps come alive with ski and snowboard lovers, couples and families, all enjoying what the snow-covered Dinner Plain has to offer.

The cosy village is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Dinner Plain boasts scenic village and bush walks, and some great wine and dining options.

Choose your adventures with skiing & snowboarding, biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing along trails that leave from the centre of the cosy village, explore historic cattlemen’s huts from the gold rush era or head over to the famed downhill ski runs of Mount Hotham, with a shuttle bus able to run you there and back in just 15 minutes.

All year round, Dinner Plain has no resort entry fee. So come and see for yourself everything that this gorgeous alpine village has to offer.
