MOUNT BUFFALO SNOW CONDITIONS
16-08-2017 
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.

From the Diggers on the battlefields of wartime Europe to communities who band together against the threat and aftermath of bushfires, drought and flood; Australians have an inherent capacity to act selflessly to show they care and retain a sense of humour under the most trying of circumstances.

A sporting bet made eighty years ago captured this spirit when two men journeyed from Beechworth in Victoria’s north east to the top of Mount Buffalo some 51 miles away, in a wheel barrow.The challenge was successfully met but the winner’s cheque was never claimed and the true prize, friendship, remains its legacy.

Barrowthon is your opportunity to honour that legacy and push your own barrow, literally, for a cause that matters to you.

The two day event will be gruelling but foremost it will be fun and by pushing yourself to show you care, you will raise funds and awareness for your own cause.
