Busy Sunday at Cresta Valley - Mount Buffalo National Park

Heaps of people tobogganing and cross country skiing on Sunday 8th August - blue bird day at the Winter Wonderland

Mt Buffalo is one of Australia's oldest National Parks. Often referred to as "The Island in the Sky" Mt Buffalo is a very large monolith with extremely unique landscapes, flora and fauna. Spectacular granite outcrops with breath taking views across the Victorian Alps. In winter the park is ideal for cross-country skiing with its gentle undulating landscape, spectacular sub-alpine environment and the convenience of over 10km of marked ski trails. The park offers safe and accessible toboganning and snow play areas, providing great fun for the whole family in two distinct areas. Dingo Dell is located 3km from the Gorge intersection or about 30km from Porepunkah, there is a cafe, visitor centre, toboggan slope and ample room for snowplay. At Cresta Valley (3km futher up the road) there are toboggan runs, groomed and un-groomed cross country ski trails and toilets.
