News & Updates
After two days of rain there is a lot of damage to the snow pack but we are expecting good snowfalls Thursday and Friday. The weekend of the 19th and 20th August will be less stormy and should have good snow and be a great weekend to visit Mount Buffalo.

We will keep you informed of conditions. Be prepared to fit chains and drive carefully. Have a great time in the snow at our Winter Wonderland. Regular weather and snow updates can be found at 

There are spectacular views of the Alps from the gorge and our walking tracks are a great way to see our waterfalls, granite pinnacles, snow plains and forests. So spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this Winter.

While general camping and the shower facilities are closed there are limited snow camping sites available during winter. The main camping areas reopen again in November.



We have more cold weather forecast over the next few days so its back to carrying chains on Mount Buffalo until advised otherwise.
RANGER Update - only occurs if weather forecasts dictate a change to the requirement to carry chains at Mt Buffalo. You may go days before receiving another 4pm update. Stay tuned.

With the forecast for the North East indicating snowy conditions for the upcoming days, the requirement to carry snow chains at Mt Buffalo has been reinstated.

Staff at Mt Buffalo will continue to monitor weather forecasts and will only send out a 4pm email when conditions dictate a change.

Please call or email if you have any questions.
