Our visit to the High Country was made even better by basing ourselves in Mansfield for a few days. It proved to be not just a great town to explore in itself, but a fantastic central location for heading to many nearby places of interest, like Mt Buller, Lake Eildon and Jamieson.

Brimming with history, such as gold mining and high country cattle droving, the town also played a big part in the Ned Kelly story. At the Court House, the declaration was made that Ned Kelly was an outlaw, after the killing of three policemen at Stringybark Creek.

There was plenty to see as we wandered around town. From Rail Trails that take you all the way to Tallarook..to admiring public art depicting life in the High Country.

That fresh mountain air is good for the soul. We're already planning a return trip.
