Mount Dunn Og Gog Magog Circuit is a 8km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in Mount Buffalo National Park, Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

The Mount Dunn Og Gog Magog Circuit explores two of Mount Buffalo's most striking granite peaks. The hike commences at the Reservoir Day Visitor Area. Walk back the way you drove in to the start of Mount McLeod Track, turn north and follow this track for approximately 300m before turning left at a signposted track. Head generally west towards Five Acre Plains and Mollison's Galleries. Approximately one kilometre along the track we come to the junction of the trail to Og, Gog and Magog. Scramble through the boulders for amazing views across the Buffalo plateau.

After enjoying the views, continue west towards as the tail descends then skirts around the base of Og, Gog and Magog. Continue to follow the main trail until you reach a trail junction at the start of Five Acre Plains. Turn left, taking care not to follow the Mollison's Gallery track. Follow this trail along its length until you reach the Rocky Creek Track. Turn left and follow this track to the junction of the Long Plains Walking Track. Head east and follow the Long Plains Walking Track for several kilometres until you reach the foot of Mount Dunn. Climb the 100m to the summit for excellent views of the plateau. Retrace your steps back along the Long Plains Walking Track and follow it back to the Reservoir Day Visitor Area.

About the Region

Mount Buffalo is a moderately tall mountain plateau on the west side of the Victorian Alpine region. The top of the mountain has striking granite boulders and rock formations. From the north, the mountain is quite remarkable, with the highest accessible point being a prominent peak called The Horn. A walking track leads to The Horn and visitors can enjoy a 360 degree view from the top.

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 to the Buffalo plateau, continue past the road to the chalet and drive until you see the Parks Office on your right. The gravel road to the reservoir is on the right about 500m past the Parks Office. If you reach the VicRoads depot you have gone to far. The road is suitable for 2WD vehicle but take care and drive slowly. Park at the end of the road near the reservoir.


Except for about half a kilometre of fire-trail, this walk is all on foot tracks that traverse a range of rocky terrain, snow gum forest, taller forest, and open snow grass plains.
