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.

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 love walking in Kosciuszko National Park so were keen to try the Victorian Alps. We spent a day in Mt Buffalo National Park and did three short walks - one near the lower end (Eurobin Falls), one around the middle (Gorge Heritage Walk) and one at the top (The Horn). They were all great walks but you do have... More

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 !

I've always visited in summer/autumn, and there are so many things to see and do in the park at those times. Plenty of walking, including the Big Walk (recommend doing top half only: Mackey's Lookout to Gorge Car Park), walks on to Lake Catani (recommend Underground River walk), rock scrambling around the galleries and up on the Hump. Magnificent viewpoints... More

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 history up at the Mt Buffalo Chalet. Cool off at Lake Catani or one of... More

So so so many things to do there. U can just pass hours by looking the natural beauty. Beautiful lake, falls, valley full of wild flowers and off course wildlife ( we have encounter with wombats, Snakes ). Heading towards the Horn (1723m) is not a easy driving. Use low gear and 4wd in the gravel road to the top... More

Drove up this morning. What a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours. Despite the constant rain, enjoyed a walk to one of the upper and lower falls. Also loved walking around through the snow covered forest towards the top. Highly recommend you go if you are in Bright/Porepunkah nearby.
