The Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing is a point to point walk, accessible for hiking from November to April. The track can be walked in either direction but is best when starting from Falls Creek and walking towards Mt Hotham.

There are two campsites on the Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing:

?Dibbins Hut campsite, on a snow plain near the headwaters of the Cobungra River, is 9km from Mount Hotham.

Each campsite has five sites with a tent platform for each site: four 3m x 3.7m platforms and one larger platform that is 4.5m x 3m. The platforms are designed to fit a 2-3 person hiking tent.

The tent platforms are designed for you to pitch your tent directly on the platform. Each platform has eyelets around the edge to hook tent peg loops or guy ropes over. As well as these there are movable ?pegs? that slot into the mesh, allowing tents of all shapes to be set up.
