NEW RULES FOR BUS PARKING
15-04-2019 
Please be advised a new bus drop off / pick up point has been constructed at the Mount Buffalo Chalet for improved pedestrian safety

This is located out the front of the Chalet garden, opposite the entry to the Gorge Car Park. Please note there is now NO BUS PARKING in the Gorge Car Park. (Larger than 12 seater vehicles)

Access to the new bus drop off / pick up point can be reached by driving directly up towards the Chalet and utilising the Chalet Car Park as a turn-around point before dropping off or picking up guests.

For stops longer than 5 minutes, buses can park at the large space opposite the Parks Office on Mount Buffalo road (near the entry to the Monolith walking track).

Safety is paramount to Parks Victoria and thanks all licensees for their understanding.
