Mt Buffalo is Victoria's oldest National Park. It is located near the towns of Myrtleford and Bright in the alpine region in Victoria's north east. The park now covers some 31000 hectares of the state's most spectacular country with waterfalls, snow gums, wildflowers, skiing and many other activities. Mount Buffalo is a rock climber's heaven and an abseilers delight. Hang gliders soar overhead with the eagles and the wild life is prolific and unique.
There are ski and snowboard facilities on Mt Buffalo but it is the smallest of Victoria's ski resorts. There are 11 kilometres of marked cross country trails and there is limited lift capacity for down hill skiers. In the summer months thousands of tourists visit the national park to use the 95 kilometres of bushwalking tracks and experience the unique wildlife. The area abounds with wombats, echidna, kangaroos and wallabies, possums and millions of colourful birds including many species of spectacular mountain parrots. It is entirely possible that you could also spot a wild koala in the park.
Accommodation is available at the foot of the mountain and in the surrounding towns. Bright has a lot of accommodation to offer and caters extensively to the skiing trade. Mount Buffalo is a place of great beauty, spectacular scenery, fantastic wildlife and exciting activities, so if you are looking for a holiday destination that sounds like this then come and spend a holiday in the Mt Buffalo National Park.
