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.

LAKE CATANI CAMPING GROUND CLOSED
13-04-2017

Winter Camping at Mount Buffalo National Park

There are three options for those interested in coming to camp at Mt Buffalo over winter. Camping is only permitted in designated sites: Rocky Creek, Mt McLeod and Lake Catani. All campsites require a booking.  

Mt McLeod and Rocky Creek campsites are open during winter however the walk into those campsites is made longer because the Reservoir Road closes. Therefore anyone intending to camp out there needs to be well prepared for camping in Alpine areas and a long walk/ski. A fee for use is required, book on-line at www.parkstay.vic.gov.au/book-your-stay

 

Lake Catani Campground    Five sites (2 people per site) are available only during the declared snow season, beginning the Friday of Queens Birthday weekend until the end of August. Access is via a 1km walk/ski off the main road along the Lake Catani Rd or a 2km walk/ski from the Gorge Visitor Area along the Gorge/Lake Catani track. No vehicle access is available. The sites are situated around the stone hut. Fires may be lit only in the fireplaces within the picnic shelter and fuel stoves are recommended. Campground showers and flushing toilets are closed during winter, but the pit toilet located behind the stone hut is open. Water is available from Lake Catani but is not potable, boil or treat. No fees apply, book on-line at www.parkstay.vic.gov.au/book-your-stay
