Dinner Plain is a town in Victoria, Australia, located on the Great Alpine Road, 13 kilometres from Mount Hotham Alpine Resort, and 375 kilometres from Melbourne. At the, Dinner Plain had a population of 143, yet has over 200 lodges and chalets for tourist accommodation.Dinner Plain is now a thriving all year round resort with a wide range of summer activities such as bush walking, horse riding, mountain biking and tennis. The local pub is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and a new spa and beauty centre has recently opened.Dinner Plain has one ski tow for use during winter.HistoryThe late Holocene Aboriginal traditional owners of the Dinner Plain region were likely the Omeo tribe of the Yaitmatang language group . Other groups of Aboriginal people, including neighbouring Dhuduroa, Brabalung likely passed through and visited the Alpine area of Victoria's High Country. Gunn has suggested a widespread "confederacy" of tribes existed across the Australian Alps during the late Holocene. He further argues that these connections may have ancient origins that are evident through a common rock art style that emphasises human figures . This alpine art style has origins in the mid-Holocene around 3500 BP, when the rock shelters of the region were primarily used for ritual purposes, and is likely to precede the tribal boundaries encountered historically by thousands of years.The tradition of hospitality at Dinner Plain goes back well over a century, when mountain cattlemen first arrived to rest and graze their cattle. The site of Dinner Plain village was originally part of 640acre. When the coaches were running between Omeo and Bright, they would stop here for midday dinner, hence the area became known as Dinner Plain.
