Mount Buffalo

Mount Buffalo is moderately tall mountain plateau in the Mount Buffalo National Park in Victoria, Australia that is located approximately 350 kilometres (220 mi) northeast of Melbourne in the Australian Alps.

The summit on the plateau, known as the Horn, has an elevation of 1,723 metres.

During winter Mount Buffalo offers snow play and cross-country skiing.  Bring your ski gear along with the trusty family toboggans and make your way to the sub alpine climes of Mount Buffalo for a dose of snow play, tobogganing and cross-country skiing. 

 Enjoy family friendly tobogganing and snow play in two separate areas. Dingo Dell is about 30 kilometres from Porepunkah and features a cafe, visitor centre, ski school, toboggan slope and ample room for snow play. Cresta Valley lies 3 kilometres further up the road and has toboggan runs, groomed and un-groomed cross country ski trails and toilets.

Be prepared to fit chains and drive carefully. Have a great time in the snow at our Winter Wonderland.  

Early winter at Mount Buffalo is cold clear days with views of the snow on the Alps in the distance. June brings the first of the winter snow falls, but until the colder weather and bigger storms of early July arrive, little remains on the ground for long. 

Mount Buffalo's snow season is normally from mid July to early September.
