VALLEY View Lodge at Mt Beauty offers group tours of the stunning Kiewa Valley in Victoria's north-east.
Andy and Sarah Shuttleworth, locals for more than 20 years, moved into the lodge last June and offer group tours of the area and surrounds during spring and autumn.
With Sarah having an extensive background in hospitality and Andy being an experienced bus driver, they jumped at the opportunity to run an accommodation business offering small group tours.
The cosy and comfortable lodge boasts 13 suites, a licensed bar, communal lounge and dining area, an expansive deck offering stunning views of Mt Bogong, and an inground pool.
High Country group tours run for five nights, with all accommodation, meals and activities included. All tours are conducted on the lodge's 25-seater bus.
"Whether you'd like to book a tour with friends or come on your own and make new friends here, everyone is welcome at the lodge," Sarah said.
"With the blooming flowers of spring and the changing leaves of autumn, the hardest thing is deciding when to come.
"We're really excited to show off our beautiful valley to new visitors or those coming back to see more of the area."
The tours include trips to the historic towns of Beechworth and Yackandandah, a day trip to neighbouring Bright, visits to local museums, picnics in picturesque parks, and morning teas and lunches in local cafes and restaurants.
It's a great chance to visit Mt Beauty and nearby towns while seeing everything else in between.
The lodge is also a great place to simply kick back, relax and take in the views of Mt Bogong.
Bookings are now being taken for spring tours, which run from mid-October until early December.
Autumn High Country tours will run from mid-March until mid-May.
