We know how devastating this summer’s fires have been for the environment. They have also been terrible for most local economies. As areas have reopened, tourist trade is starting to pickup. Many areas are organising special events to attract visitors back. The Labour Day long weekend in early March will be a significant time for High Country communities.

As part of this, there will be a major ‘picnic in the park’ happening at Mirimbah, at the base of Mt Buller over that weekend.


Event: Picnic in the Park 2020

Date: 8th March 2020 Time: 11am – 5pm

Location: Mirimbah Park at the base of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling

Tickets: Adults entry – $35 Kids entry (7-18 year) – $15 Kids under 7 are FREE
