In the warmer months, climb Australia’s highest mainland mountain, go boating and fishing, enjoy the alpine flowers or take a guided tour. If you’re missing the winter action, there’s rock climbing, caving and mountain biking to get your heart racing, and if you don’t want to go alone, you can take a tour with a recreational tour operator.
