beautiful alpine flowers…

Visiting alpine regions outside the snow season is one of my favourite things to do. Beautiful vistas, excellent walking, no crowds, serenity. Additionally, depending on when you visit, there may be an abundance of gorgeous and unusual wildflowers.

Such was the case on my recent visit to Dinner Plain and Mount Hotham. Disappointingly, I have been spectacularly unable to identify any of the flowers I photographed, perhaps unsurprisingly as there are over 500 species native to the area. Hopefully these are all natives and not introduced species.

If you know what any of them are please comment!

Accommodation tip: Snowgums 15 was very comfortable (NB the double beds are a little on the cosy side)

Dining tip: the chef at The General at Mt Hotham creates superb meals at reasonable prices, with a great vantage point for sunset views

    They are beautiful, Ebony! No flower expert here so not sure what variety they are.

      Thanks! There were lots of extremely tiny flowers around too that didn’t look like flowers until you looked closely. Amazing. It was too windy to get photos of those though.

So what do you think?
