Mount Buffalo is well worth a visit in the summer. The mountain is normally 10 degrees cooler than Bright and the alpine valleys, so it is a great place to relax and escape the heat on hot days. There is swimming, fishing and kayaking on Lake Catani. Rock Climbing,Abseiling, Bushwalking, Porta ledge picnics and many other amazing activities and adventures are available using licensed tour operators.  There is a coffee van in the gorge and a Cafe at Dingo Dell (See drop down menu for opening hours).
Why not visit one of our amazing waterfalls or perhaps experience sunset at the Horn where you can also view the amazing Bogong Moths swarming as the darkness falls.
Spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this summer.
