Emma Hinchliffe

Director

Talk to me about property management, real estate, Harrietville and fun family activities.

Emma landed in the area in 2000 for a season at Mount Hotham, then some back & forth for a few more. Eventually in 2005 Emma & Tom settled in Harrietville and started a cafe/wine bar. By 2007, bubs no. 1 was on the way and Emma was asked to help look after 3 holiday units in town… flash forward a couple of years and the cafe was sold and Alpine Valley Getaways was well & truly established. As they say, the rest is history!

Talk to me about organising your snow holiday, walking trails for you and your dog or many of the other relaxing activies to be enjoyed around town.

Cailin moved to the area originally to complete a season at Mount Hotham and never left.

In her spare time, you will find Cailin horse riding, fishing, catching up with friends or enjoying a good book.
