Mount Buffalo National Park
Mount Buffalo is one of the best known of the State's national parks. The top of the mountain is a granite plateau, snow covered in winter, filled with wildflowers in the summer. And the views are simply magnificent. Stand on the top of the gorge and you look down over the river valley and across to the huge expanse of the high country.

It is a place to relax, whatever the season. You can take it at whatever pace you want. Walk, ride a bike, ski or just sit and read and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the mountain.

If you're more energetic you can go fishing or canoeing on Lake Catani or sit and watch the hang-gliders launch themselves from the granite clifftops.

The Chalet, which opened first in 1909, is a wonderful place to stay and was, until the opening of the lodge at Cresta Valley, the only accommodation available. The gardens that surround it make a magnificent showing in spring and summer. Stand on the verandahs and Rosellas will eat from your hand and, maybe in the public carpark, maybe along the Catani track, you may just find that creature so timid elsewhere, the Lyrebird.

Beautifully positioned at the foot of Mt Buffalo, Myrtleford is named after the glorious trees which line the nearby creek.

Mount Baw Baw National Park
This park offers outstanding bushwalking, vistas and skiing . Baw Baw Village which sits on the western edge of the Park has downhill skiing suitable for beginners as well as good cross country skiing and is the main access point to the Park. Baw Baw National Park covers the Steep slopes of Mt Erica, Mt St Phillack (the highest at 1566m) and the Thompson and Aberfeldy valleys. A sub-alpine area, the most abundant trees are snow gum and alpine ash as well as mountain ash, stringybark, red stringy bark and silvertop.
