Imagine what it must have been like for explorer William Hovell to discover this place on horseback in 1824 and regard the stunning view – so striking, it inspired the name Mount Bellevue.
The vineyards and gourmet delights of the King Valley followed in Hovell's footsteps in subsequent generations, but the backdrop of snow-capped alps and endless valley vistas remain virtually unchanged.
Today Mt Bellevue is one of the north’s largest cattle stations, complete with vineyards, and is also home to a collection of the most beautifully decorated and charming accommodation imaginable. Host Winnie Jones has a wonderful style that she lavishes on her eclectic collection. Near the homestead is a cottage that is home to two suites – the upstairs Eyrie and the Froggery downstairs. The one-bedroom Vigneron's and two-bedroom Cattleman's cottages complete the picture.
Whichever you choose, the attention to detail will impress, not just in furnishings, but in touches like fresh flowers and curios that tell the story of a country life.
Wineries such as Dal Zotto and Politini beg discovery, but we wouldn't be surprised if your favoured option is to gather some local goodies and return hilltop to indulge with one of the greatest views in Victoria. And that is no exaggeration.
