The fourth of our top ten Australian day walks, Razorback Ridge is the highlight of Victoria on two feet and a heart beat.
The Australian landscape is filled with Razorback Ridges but ask any bushwalker and there’s only one true Razorback.Strung between Mt Feathertop and Mt Hotham like a length of string, Razorback Ridge offers exhilarating alpine walking and some of the finest views in the Victorian High Country.
Entirely above the tree line, there’s a big-name neighbour wherever you look: Mt Bogong, Buffalo, Hotham and, directly ahead, Feathertop, the most impressive of all Victoria’s peaks, standing isolated from the waves of mountains around it.
Walkers who fancy a shorter day can turn back at a saddle above Federation Hut, retracing their steps along Razorback Ridge, while those with peak-bagging spirit can continue on to the summit of Feathertop before returning across the ridge to Hotham.
