The Mount Buffalo National Park is a national park in the alpine region of Victoria, Australia. The 31,000-hectare (77,000-acre) national park is located approximately 350 kilometres (220 mi) northeast of Melbourne in the Australian Alps. Within the national park is Mount Buffalo, a moderately high mountain plateau, with an elevation of 1,723 metres (5,653 ft) above sea level.

On 4 November 1898 an area of 1,166 hectares (2,880 acres) was reserved around the plateau and Eurobin Falls as Mount Buffalo National Park, making it one of the oldest national parks in Australia. In 1908 a road was opened to the plateau and the park was expanded to 10,406 hectares (25,710 acres); and in 1980 to its current size to take in most of the surrounding foothill country.
On 7 November 2008, the park was added to the Australian National Heritage List as one of eleven areas constituting the Australian Alps National Parks and Reserves.

  • Incredible views. The old chalet is a chilling relic with lovely grounds. The Horn is truly spectacular, especially the low, narrow, winding path near the top. Panoramic views.

  • Astonishingly beautiful mountain, the view from the horn is breathtaking. A great sunset spot to watch the sun setting beyond the rolling hills. The road is a windy journey, be on the lookout for wildlife if travelling in darkness or late/early sun. A few stops on the way up for various lookouts and beauty spots make Buffalo a great day trip from Bright. Be sure to take your own food and water, there's no amenities and once you're up, the only way down is the same road.
  • The views are amazing and the snow was really fun. The snow was really thick when I went and it was such an enjoyable experience. Definitely recommend coming here with your kids during winter.
  • Spent a fantastic day exploring a number of tracks, waterfalls and of course the summit at 'The Horn' very accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels. Loved it.
  • Great place to visit and even free entry in winter! Love the landscape on the plateau, good to get some hikes in and great for climbing adventures too. 👌🏻
  • MT Buffalo has many nice walks, bicycle rides and great views. With waterfalls and stunning landscape's to enjoy.
