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.

Breathtaking! Family drive up windy but well maintained roads. Riders along the way which means a slow drive but that's a good thing. Views are incredible and a number of different walks for different levels. Well suited for my kids but also longer, harder walks available. Good facilities on top and surprised to see a van where we could get an ice cream after our treck. Beautiful spot
Great place for swimming camping bush walking mountain bike ridding free skiing,and taboganning for all ages when it snows tho, or have a BBQ and play cricket at the oval. Big warning tho be careful when driving up or down idiots like to cut corners very DANGEROUS.!
