Dinner Plain

Sitting on the side of Mt. Hotham, Dinner Plain derives its name as the place where stage coaches would stop for lunch as they travelled from Omeo to Bright. Today it is a premier ski resort in winter and wonderful place to visit in summer with clear skies, warm days and cool nights. Spectacular scenery, walks and wildflowers surround the settlement.


An iconic “high country” town, Omeo was the name given to the area by the indigenous tribes who lived there. Nestled in a stunning valley the town is surrounded by the tallest mountains in Australia and also some of the wildest rivers in the country such as the Tambo, Cobungra, Mitta Mitta and the Snowy.
