Touring the King Valley

The King Valley is breathtakingly picturesque, set amidst the backdrop of the Victorian Alps. At the head of the valley you can access the Alpine National Park or enjoy some fishing on Lake William Hovell. Visit Power's Lookout on the way to Mansfield and take in the same view that Australian bushranger, Harry Power, used to his advantage to keep an eye on approaching police in the 1870's. Power is also renowned for mentoring bushranger, Ned Kelly, and legend has it that Ned's grandparents dobbed him into the police. The site of Kelly's grandparent's home is near Cheshunt South just below Power's Lookout.

The area is also popular amongst the cycling fraternity for its quiet roads and range of gradients.
