VISITING MOUNT BUFFALO THIS AUTUMN
12 -4 -2017 
Our Mountain is amazing in the Autumn, but is getting colder so make sure that you bring some warm clothes as the alps are normally 10 degrees cooler than Bright and the alpine valleys. There is still enough warm days swimming and kayaking on Lake Catani, while Rock Climbing and Abseiling in the gorge, bushwalking and other amazing activities and adventures are less weather dependent.
Spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this Autumn.
