MOUNT BEAUTY

Mount Beauty is nestled at the foot of Mount Bogong, Victoria’s highest mountain. Mount Beauty is a very pretty and modern town that is now hooked into the Victorian Ski Season. Mount Beauty is also one of the Northeast Quadrella of Autumn Season Spectacular.

The town was originally established by the State Electricity Commission of Victorian to house construction workers from the Kiewa Hydroelectric Scheme in 1949, passing to the control of the local shire council in 1967 after construction was completed.

A hang gliding competition, the Bogong Cup, is held in January each year.

Mount Beauty is a launching point for trips to the ski resort, Falls Creek and to the Bogong High Plains. To this end there are several ski hire shops, several eateries and a bus company doing daily trips to and from the end of the road at Falls Creek.

This town also has great views to the mountains, such as Mount Bogong and the peaks that are of interest to so many tourists coming through the town.

The Bogong Hotel is an iconic location and pub. The other watering hole is a tavern.

The Mount Beauty War Memorial is on the northern fringe of the cbd.

The churches are all modern buildings.

Mount Beauty is a nice spot and a stopover is recommended. Time your visit to the Autumn Season and there is an extra colour bonus.
