Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing

 One of Victoria’s icon walks, the 37km Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing (FHAC) is a 3 day/2 night walk through the Alpine National Park, linking the resort villages of Falls Creek and Mt Hotham.

Winding its way along alpine ridges through snow gum woodlands and snow grass plains, over rocky summits and past historic huts, this three day hike offers an achievable and rewarding challenge with spectacular views every step.

The Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing is a point-to-point walk, accessible for hiking from November to April. The track can be walked in either direction, but is best when starting from Falls Creek and walking to Mt Hotham.

 There are two campsites along the way: Cope Hut Campsite, amongst the snowgums on the Bogong High Plains, is 14km from the trailhead and usually the first night’s campsite. Dibbins Hut Campsite is on a snowgrass plain near the headwaters of the Cobungra River.

A permit is required to camp at the Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing campsites.
