Don a pair of snowshoes and explore the winter wonderland that is Mt Stirling. Snowshoeing is as easy as walking, providing people of all ages with the perfect way to enjoy the mountain.
Snowshoeing is a popular and safe way to explore Mt Stirling. Walking without snowshoes can be difficult and boot-pack creates hazards for skiers. When snowshoeing on the trails please keep to the left and give way to skiers. Please read our guide for Snowshoe Etiquette below.
Mt Stirling Interpretive Loops
Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management has created two interpretive walks on Mt Stirling ideal for exploring by snowshoe during the snow season - a 4.4km Wombat Drop Loop and a 12.3km Summit Loop.
A number of interpretive signs are positioned along the trail, telling the stories of Mt Stirling's history, from the olden days of logging to the thrill of the ‘Man From Snowy River' movie set and the characters that create the past and present, as well as the flora and fauna that make up the stunning environment. Walks start from King Saddle Shelter.
