Getting There & Away
Located 400km from Melbourne, Omeo is the gateway town to Mt Hotham (57km, 50 minutes) via Dinner Plain en route to Bright (108km, two hours) along the Great Alpine Rd. The road is open year-round but you'll need to attach car-tyre chains during the winter months. There's also a road to Falls Creek (C543), but it's only open during the warmer months (usually from the first weekend of November to May).
Omeo Bus Lines has a service to Omeo Monday to Friday from Bairnsdale ($18, two hours).
To get to the mountains, Dyson Group runs a year-round 'Alps Link' service to Dinner Plain ($5.40, 45 minutes), Mt Hotham ($6.40, one hour) and Bright ($13.40, two hours) three times a week.
