Corral Peak and Mahomet's Tomb is a 3km, grade 2 return hike, located in the Mount Buffalo National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 1-1.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The track climbs steadily, rising about 100m in 250m until the ridge between Le Souef Peak and The Sentinel is reached. This is a good spot to admire the ruggedness of the surroundings before dropping about 30 m and ascending the same amount to Corral Peak.

There are other tracks that can be used to explore this area. If you do not want to climb the peaks there are huge granite outcrops that can be explored by walking around and under them. From the vantage points high up there are good views to the east.

Return via the same route.

About the region

An all-seasons national park, Mount Buffalo has sheer cliffs, imposing granite tors, tumbling waterfalls, snow gums and stunning wildflowers. First reserved in 1898, the 31,000 hectare park contains vegetation and fauna adapted to extremes of weather, as a result of its sub-alpine location. As you drive and walk throughout the park, you will see evidence of the recent fires, but you will also see the vivid colours as species begin to regenerate. There is plenty of wildlife to see including Lyrebirds, Eastern Rosellas, Wombats and Swamp Wallabies. Many animals can be seen along the main tourist road so please drive carefully, especially at dawn and dusk.

Getting there

Drive towards Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford. Take the turn off to Mount Buffalo near Porepunkah. Drive up Mount Buffalo and continue driving south (that is, take the right fork just after you reach the plateau level, the left fork goes to the chalet).

The walk start is about 6.5 km from this road fork. Once past Lake Catani, the road climbs steadily until The Cathedral is reached. The track to Corral Peak is roughly opposite.

There is an extensive parking area and also toilets (for the rock climbers who climb The Cathedral and The Hump).
