An easy 35km drive from Bright or around 50km from Myrtleford, the 31,000 hectare National Park is a fantastic all-season destination. In winter Mt. Buffalo is a great place to take the family for a fun day tobogganing, cross country skiing or snow-shoe walking. Any...More

Cannot rave enough about Mt Buffalo. A beautiful drive up and down the hill. Plenty of waterfalls, ferns and beautiful scenery. The snow was amazing and we went tobogganing at Dingo Dell. The chalet is well worth a visit. Allow a whole day to explore...More

great place for snow shoeing. It's not big but very nice and not overcrowded with people. There is a nice loop and you can also go up to the horn.

What an amazing part of Victoria to visit, so beautiful. The snow was so thick and crisp, very memorable. Definitely worth the trip up the mountain.

After crossing the Buckland River, the sealed road gradually climbs a long spur towards Mt. Buffalo. Few people could fail to be impressed by the massive granite cliffs rising around them. Rich farmland soon gives way to majestic forests to Candlebark Gums and ferny undergrowth....More

High cliffs, waterfalls, wildlife everywhere. Short, medium & long walks. There just was not enough time to see all we wanted to visit here. Make sure you do the Gorge, Monolith & Horn walks if nothing else.

We loved Mount Buffallo. We drove to to the Horn picnic area and walked to the summit. The views are 360 degrees and absolutely incredible. There are many walking tracks and we would have loved more time. We will be back to explore.

The Horn is a great place with superb 360 degree views of the Australian Alps. It's a pretty easy climb to the top and the gravel road to reach the access is all part of the adventure! A must see!
