Outdoor Activities

Take the path untrodden.
Or the road less pedalled.

The Pyrenees invites you to leave your city routine behind. To rekindle your spirit of adventure. Awaken your inner explorer. And take a step off the beaten track.

The Beeripmo Walk guides you through the Mount Cole and Mount Buangor State Parks along winding bush tracks through towering rainforests to hidden waterfalls and fern-filled gullies.

For more vigorous activities, there’s ideal terrain for hiking, mountain bike and dirt bike riding, four wheel driving, horse riding, hang-gliding and geo-caching.

For road cyclists, the picturesque 100km Magic Ride takes in the townships of Moonambel, Landsborough, Elmhurst and Avoca with views of vineyards and rolling hills whistling by.

Avoca, Moonambel, Beaufort and surrounds are popular destinations for gold prospectors, with many of the world’s largest alluvial gold nuggets found in the area.

During the winter months you have the opportunity to experience snow without spending an absolute fortune visiting the snow fields! Although snowfall in the valley itself is rare, Mt Cole and some of the higher peaks gets covered in snow nearly every winter, it’s great for making a snowman!

And at the end of the day, there’s nothing like sitting around a campfire under a moonlit sky, gazing up at the stars and listening to the sounds of the bush.
