See our Snow Gums at Wallace's Hut web page.
Mt. Buffalo was named by the explorers Hume & Hovell in 1824. The trip to its summit is well worth the effort.
The 31,000 hectare Mt. Buffalo National Park was reserved in 1898.
After 30 km of winding mountain road you'll find a granite boulder strewn plateau with a large lake, and great views.
