The Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing is a 37km three-day hike through the Alpine National Park from Falls Creek to Mt Hotham. Enjoy spectacular views of mountain ridges from 2000m above sea level, walk through beautiful Snow Gum woodland and camp near two historic huts.
The trail is divided over three legs as follows:
Day 1: Falls Creek to Cope Hut, 14km
Day 2: Cope Hut to Dibbins Hut, 14km
Day 3: Dibbins Hut to Mt Hotham, 9km
Each campsite has five sites with a tent platform for each site: four 3m x 3.7m platforms and one larger platform that is 4.5m x 3m. The platforms are designed to fit a 2-3 person hiking tent.
The tent platforms are designed for you to pitch your tent directly on the platform. Each platform has eyelets around the edge to hook tent peg loops or guy ropes over. As well as these there are movable pegs that slot into the mesh, allowing tents of all shapes to be set up.
