Overview
More
Mount Buffalo National Park is 325 kilometres, or a 4 hour drive north of Melbourne. It has sheer cliffs, imposing granite tors, tumbling waterfalls, snow gums and stunning wildflowers. The park features over 90km of walking tracks, panoramic scenery, waterfalls and scope for adventurous pursuits such as rock climbing and hang-gliding. Mount Buffalo is an all-seasons playground. In summer, wildflowers are plentiful and the park is a cool retreat from the heat of the lowlands. Take in superb 360-degree views from the summit of the Horn and the delightful Gorge Heritage Walk. Enjoy picnics, canoeing and camping at Lake Catani in the summer months. In winter the park is ideal for cross-country skiing with its gentle undulating landscape, spectacular sub-alpine environment and the convenience of over 14km of marked ski trails. The park offers safe and accessible tobogganing and snow play areas, providing great fun for the whole family. Camping is available from Melbourne Cup Weekend to April inclusive. Bookings are essential.

This national park is a brilliant place to visit in both summer and winter. In the winter season you get snowfalls that make the area an amazing scene. Remember to carry chains into the park during winter.

Magnificent scenery all over the National Park. A 26 km drive to the top but an easy drive. At the moment the waterfalls are running and a visit here will not disappoint.

The summit walk is beautifully crafted with stairs and was impressed for the narrow path around the rocks. One day is not enough if you need to explore the falls in the national parks.

We were lucky to visit this Mountain and national park the day after a storm and there was a stunning mist rising through the craggy ranges. The trees and outlook are stunning. Do not miss visiting this place !

Magnificent! Narrow winding road all the way to the end - the Horn. Beware cyclists, I reckon they train all year apart from winter. Heaps of walks short and long. The Big Walk is recommended for fit hikers. Stunning views at The Horn and interesting...More
