YASS TO Mt Buller (6hr498km)
First break is Germination Park Submarine
Oddies Creek Play Space has a lovely short walk
The real changes in to the landscape become dominant the closer you get to the snow fields of Mt Bulla:
The blue is paling as the air thins and withdraws from the warmth in preparation of the inevitable tide. The trees now naked and almost shivering in the brisk breeze. Those with leaves are twisted, almost distorted, flinching away from the cold beginning to creep in. The sun slices through the suspense every now and again with bloom like brilliance of red yellows and orange stretching for the sky. “The Winter Prince” work in progress, view accompanying illustrations at http://fantasyart.v-i-o.com/contact-and-vibabbler-blog.html
next stop Mt Buller and the snow.
Mt Buller Chalet Best place ever, spa, gym, pool, ski straight in the door of the chalet and only a short walk to food shops and chairlift.
Had to stay two nights. Not the best weather, we spent most of the time in a cloud but there is still something magical in that.
