Slow EFPOS at Dingo Dell Cafe and Ski School
07-07-2018 
Telephone and Internet communications are erratic at best at Mount Buffalo which can affect EFPOS services when purchasing from Dingo Dell Cafe and Mount Buffalo Ski School. It is recommended visitors bring cash which will make hiring toboggans, purchasing meals and coffee etc easier and quicker. Dingo Dell Cafe and day shelter is open 10 am to 5 pm 7 days a week during the snow season

GREAT SNOW AT BUFFALO
07-07-2018 
There is good snow for snowplay and tobogganing at Dingo Dell and great snow at Cresta valley. All the cross country trails have good cover and fresh snow- so get up and play in the snow - free entry (Remember to carry chains and to bring your winter woollies). Dingo Dell Cafe and Mount Buffalo Ski School are open seven days a week so there is a warm place to sit and have a coffee and look out at the snow or book yourself a ski lesson or tour.

Some dog friendly parks 

Hepburn Regional Park

The Eucalypt forests and gently undulating hills of the Hepburn Regional Park provide a lovely setting for a stroll with your dog. So next time you’re headed for the nearby attractions of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, don’t leave the dog at home.

You Yangs Regional Park

The granite peaks of the You Yangs rise dramatically from the surrounding volcanic plains between Melbourne and Geelong. Explore one of the tracks that traverse the park, taking in magnificent views, or relax in one of the park’s many picnic areas.

Bunurong Coastal Reserve

Explore the sandy coves and rocky headlands with your dog, along one of Victoria’s most beautiful coastlines. The rugged sandstone cliffs of this park are a striking backdrop for other beach activities such as swimming.

Macedon Regional Park

Both you and your dog will enjoy the expansive walking tracks in this park that take in pleasant shaded picnic grounds, Messmate Gum forests, damp gullies and a variety of native plants and animals.

Yarra Bend Park

The largest area of natural vegetation near the city, Yarra Bend Park has large off-lead areas for your dog to run, sniff and socialise with other canine chums. And with 16 kilometres of river frontage, views from the city to the Dandenongs, and plenty of on-lead trails, both you and your dog will share some wonderful walks.

Albert Park

Melburnians are fortunate to have this 225-hectare recreational park in the heart of their city. With its picturesque lake and network of trails, Albert Park offers your dog a smorgasbord of exciting sights and smells as well as off-lead areas to run and play. It is also the home of the RSPCA Million Paws Walk every May, the number one metropolitan social event for your dog.

Jells Park

A suburban park with nine kilometres of paths and trails, hectares of open space, and the Dandenong Creek running through it, Jells Park is popular with both human and canine visitors. Please keep your dog on-lead and stay within the ‘dogs allowed’ areas in order to protect native wildlife, including the 150 bird species that call this park home.

Cape Conran Coastal Park

Explore a network of on-road and off-road tracks with your canine friends in this rugged coastal park. The park features wild ocean beaches, estuaries and inlets, heathlands and banksia woodlands brimming with nectar-feeding birds. Camping with dogs is also allowed in some areas. 

Kurth Kiln Regional Park

Located a short distance from Melbourne, the park is mostly known for its charcoal burning kiln used during the Second World War and is popular for picnicking, walking and camping, where dogs on leads are allowed.
