Outdoor Activities

Horse Riding

The Victorian Alps region is home to the legendary Australian high country cattlemen. A range of options, from all-day rides to overnight excursions are available.

White-water Rafting

Experienced local guides offer white-water rafting trips on the Mitta Mitta river for beginners and advanced paddlers alike. Entry points into the Mitta Mitta are within a few kilometres of the Blue Duck.

Resort and Backcountry Skiing

The Blue Duck is located within easy driving distance of the winter ski resorts of Dinner Plain and Mount Hotham (1 and 1 1/2 hrs drive). The Duck also sits at the foot of the vast Victorian Alps backcountry skiing terrain. Snow season is June-September.


Situated in the heart of the Alpine National Park, you can enjoy leisurely strolls, full day excursions or more challenging overnight hikes.

The Blue Duck area features many four-wheel drive tracks which run deep into the bush. For the best rides, arrange to be dropped off at the top of Falls Creek, Mt Hotham or Dinner Plain and ride down to the Blue Duck in a day.

Motorcycle Touring

The Alpine circuit is 270 km of the most scenic and challenging motorcycling ride in Australia, attracting riders from all over the world. The Blue Duck is one of the highlights of this great circuit.
