Over 100 years ago, Alice Manfield, the daughter of local pioneer James Manfield gained the reputation as the popular 'Guide Alice'.

Alice was a mountain guide, amateur naturalist, chalet owner and photographer. Her pioneering work at Mount Buffalo from the 1890s to the 1930s led to her becoming a tourist attraction in her own right, and helped lead to the establishment of the Mount Buffalo National Park.

Starting near the stately Mount Buffalo Chalet, this loop walk revisits the scenic highlights of those early tours, with interpretive signs along the trail allowing you to see the area's history and natural beauty through the eyes of Guide Alice. Winding through woodlands of tall Alpine Ash and twisted snow gums, the trail passes rushing waterfalls and distinctive granite tors on its way to the highest vertical cliffs in Australia. Some of the most breathtaking views of Victoria's High Country! There are loads of places to spread the picnic rug, views at every turn and boulders perfect for scrambling and adventuring throughout so allow plenty of time for discovery and connection to the majestic surrounds.
