Berghofer’s Pass is an excellent walk that’s suitable for the whole family. It’s also dog (on-leash), bike and horse friendly.
Berghofer’s Pass is a historic road that was built as an alternative road because early motor vehicles could not cope with the steep grades on Mitchell’s Victoria Pass.
Work started on Berghofer’s Pass in 1907. The route was opened in 1912 and it was the only route used until newer motor vehicles were developed that could handle the steeper grades on Victoria Pass.
Berghofer’s Pass served the community well between 1912 and 1933/4.
