The Mount Buffalo National Park is a national park located in the alpine region of Victoria, Australia. The 31,000-hectare (77,000-acre) national park is located approximately 350 kilometres (220 mi) northeast of Melbourne in the Australian Alps. Within the national park is Mount Buffalo, a moderately high mountain plateau, with an elevation of 1,723 metres (5,653 ft) above sea level.

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.

  • This was a return visit on a sunny day and the scenery is spectacular and some of the best in Victoria. The mountain is diverse in its landscape and a must see.

  • Exceptional and well known to me. Superb views, great walks, sublime. Note to Parks Victoria, have seen people taking dogs in, around Lady 's Bath, in recent years. Unacceptable.!!
  • Favourite place to hike. Plenty of hikes for all levels of fitness but the views are usually at the end of steady uphill climbs! Well worth it though. Favourite hikes are up to the Horn and the Hump. Drive up to the Chalet if you're not up for a walk and take in the view from the popular Bents lookout.
