Mount Buffalo National Park

Island in the Sky

The air becomes cooler as the path drops into a small gorge known as Lady Bath Falls, carved by Eurobin Creek. Mount Buffalo towers are almost 1000 metres above. Exploring the Mount Buffalo National Park is one of regional Victoria's premier highlights, and is achievable as a day trip from Huon Creek Retreat. Visit the new glass-bottom gorge walk viewing platform, the gardens surrounding the chalet or pack a picnic lunch and breath in the crisp mountain air as you enjoy local produce, collected from the farm gates below. For those with energy to burn, the mountain is an excellent location for rock climbing, abseiling, hiking, road cycling and skiing in the winter months. A moderate level hike to the top of The Horn elevates visitors to the mountain peak at 1723 metres. It reveals awe-inspiring 360-degree views of the Victorian Alps and glimpses of the NSW ski fields.
