VISITING MOUNT BUFFALO THIS SUMMER
09 - 12 -2017 
Mount Buffalo is well worth a visit in the summer. The mountain is normally 10 degrees cooler than Bright and the alpine valleys, so it is a great place to relax and escape the heat on hot days. There is swimming, fishing and kayaking on Lake Catani. Rock Climbing,Abseiling, Bushwalking, Porta ledge picnics and many other amazing activities and adventures are available using licensed tour operators.  There is a coffee van in the gorge and a Cafe at Dingo Dell (See drop down menu for opening hours).
Why not visit one of our amazing waterfalls or perhaps experience sunset at the Horn where you can also view the amazing Bogong Moths swarming as the darkness falls.
Spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this summer.

LICHENS AND MOSSES

The granite cliffs and boulders of Mount Buffalo appear multi colored and while this is true most of the colors are actually the mosses, lichens and other micro plants that cover the rock. Lichens (while not actually a plant) are found in an amazing range of colors from bright orange through to a range of greens, browns and greys.

Lichens are amazing and were among the first living things to colonize the land and are not actually a single plant but are a symbiotic relationship between a number of living things. A definition of a lichen is

A lichen is a composite organism that arises from algae or cyanobacteria (or both) living among filaments of a fungus in a symbiotic relationship. The combined life form has properties that are very different from the properties of its component organisms. Lichens come in many colors, sizes, and forms.
