Don a pair of snowshoes and explore the winter wonderland that is Mt Stirling. No prior experience necessary - just walk!

Snowshoeing is a popular and safe way to explore Mt Stirling.  When snowshoeing on the trails please keep to the left and give way to skiers. Please read our guide for Snowshoe Etiquette below. Walking without snowshoes can be difficult and the holes you create can pose a hazard for skiers.


Mt Stirling Interpretive Loops

There are two interpretive walks that will add to your experience when discovering Mt Stirling - a 4.4km Wombat Drop Loop and a 12.3km Summit Loop.

Interpretive signs positioned along the trail share stories from Mt Stirling's history, including indigenous connection to the Taungurung country, the logging and pioneering days and the arrival of movie-makers when this area was part of the ‘Man From Snowy River' production.  Information about the unique flora and fauna that make up the stunning environment is also captured in these local guides to add to your experience and help you interpret the alpine forest around you.  Walks start from King Saddle Shelter.

The experienced local guides with Stirling Experience love to share this special country with visitors and locals - so consider joining a guided tour while you are here. You'll understand, see and hear so much more with a guide to show you around.
