Mount Buffalo National Park: Hike, Explore, and Enjoy All Seasons

Mount Buffalo National Park, located approximately 350 kilometres northeast of Melbourne in Victoria, is a spectacular national park offering stunning scenery and a diverse range of activities. Established in 1898, it’s one of Victoria’s oldest national parks and encompasses 31,000 hectares of sub-alpine wilderness.

The park is famous for its dramatic granite cliffs, towering tors (massive rock formations), cascading waterfalls, and snow gum forests. The Horn, the park’s highest point at 1,723 metres, offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Hikers of all abilities will find trails to explore. Walk through snow gum forests on the Lakeside Walk, or challenge yourself with a hike to the top of The Horn. With over 90 kilometres of walking tracks, bushwalks, and hikes, there’s something for everyone.

Beyond the stunning scenery, Mount Buffalo National Park is home to a rich variety of wildlife. Look out for wombats grazing alongside the walking tracks, listen for the melodious calls of lyrebirds, or catch a glimpse of an eastern rosella flitting through the trees.

The park offers activities for all seasons. In summer, escape the heat and enjoy refreshing hikes or a swim in Lake Catani. Winter brings snow, transforming the park into a winter wonderland perfect for tobogganing and snowshoeing. Autumn offers colourful displays of wildflowers, while spring brings waterfalls cascading back to life.
