Ready for a mountain escape? No matter what time of the year, Dinner Plain in the Australian Alpine region is beautiful. In summer it’s a chardonnay on the balcony in the afternoon and walks through the great Aussie bush. In winter it’s skiing by day and hot chocolates by the fire at night in this Christmas like village.
