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.

Winter Camping at Mount Buffalo National Park

There are three options for those interested in coming to camp at Mt Buffalo over winter. Camping is only permitted in designated sites: Rocky Creek, Mt McLeod and Lake Catani. All campsites require a booking.  

Mt McLeod and Rocky Creek campsites are open during winter however the walk into those campsites is made longer because the Reservoir Road closes. Therefore anyone intending to camp out there needs to be well prepared for camping in Alpine areas and a long walk/ski. A fee for use is required, book on-line at


Lake Catani Campground   Winter camping closes at the end of August and the Camping ground is closed until the Melbourne Cup weekend

It is recommended that you check in at the Park Office Visitor Centre, 300m from the Chalet turn off at Mt Buffalo prior to camping during winter. Access is via a 1km walk/ski off the main road along the Lake Catani Rd or a 2km walk/ski from the Gorge Visitor Area along the Gorge/Lake Catani track. No vehicle access is available. The sites are situated around the stone hut. Fires may be lit only in the fireplaces within the picnic shelter and fuel stoves are recommended. Campground showers and flushing toilets are closed during winter, but the pit toilet located behind the stone hut is open. Water is available from Lake Catani but is not potable, boil or treat. No fees apply,


Snow camping tours will be available during the 2017 ski season
