NEW RULES FOR BUS PARKING
15-04-2019 
Please be advised a new bus drop off / pick up point has been constructed at the Mount Buffalo Chalet for improved pedestrian safety

This is located out the front of the Chalet garden, opposite the entry to the Gorge Car Park. Please note there is now NO BUS PARKING in the Gorge Car Park. (Larger than 12 seater vehicles)

Access to the new bus drop off / pick up point can be reached by driving directly up towards the Chalet and utilising the Chalet Car Park as a turn-around point before dropping off or picking up guests.

For stops longer than 5 minutes, buses can park at the large space opposite the Parks Office on Mount Buffalo road (near the entry to the Monolith walking track).

Safety is paramount to Parks Victoria and thanks all licensees for their understanding.

For further information or clarification, please contact Adam Kerry on 0499 018 384 or call 13 1963 or visit www.parks.vic.gov.au

HIGH COUNTRY WOMEN'S CYCLING FESTIVAL

CLIMB  MOUNT BUFFALO - 29 TO 31 March 2019 (BUFFALO RIDE SATURDAY)

It’s 7:30 Saturday morning at Festival HQ, Bright Brewery, and over 100 women cyclists, are ready to push to the peak together, on the inaugural Buffalo Womens Ride.

Bonded by their love of a challenge and common levels of ability, fitness and experience, small size groups led by Ride Ambassadors, will set off along the Great Alpine Road to Porepunkah for 6km, before turning onto the Mt Buffalo Road.  Over the next 6km, the first hill kicks in offering a gentle warm up, and after a short descent you pass the Mt Buffalo National Park entry where the true climb of Mt Buffalo begins. 

From there, it’s just one natural wonder after another in this unique landscape of imposing granite tors, towering cliffs, waterfalls, lush eucalyptus forests, snowgums, wildflowers and native ferns.  There’s a false flat near the mid-way point of the ascent, offering some welcome relief from the climbing.   At around 18km you reach a crest, descending slightly to the alpine plateau before a couple of final kilometres up to the Chalet, where the rewards and applause will be worth the awesome effort! 

Read more about the Mt Buffalo climb, including distance, profile & elevation on the 7 Peaks Ride website.
