VISITING MOUNT BUFFALO IN JUNE
02-05-2017 
Our Mountain is amazing in the early winter, but it is now getting very cold so make sure that you bring some warm clothes. There are spectacular views of the Alps (Snow covered now) from the gorge and the walks are a great way to see our waterfalls, Granite pinnacles, snow plains and forests. The snow normally arrives early July but there are occasional snow falls in June. Spoil yourself and "Visit Mount Buffalo" this Winter.
