The Horn at Mount Buffalo

Big walks

The best way to immerse yourself in the astonishing beauty of the Mount Buffalo is to don the hiking shoes and get walking. For the more adventurous orienteers, these longer walks take you to more remote areas of the park, where you will be rewarded with breathtaking scenery, secluded campgrounds and a pair of tired legs.

The longer track walks may be more basic in construction with limited markings and definition. The tracks may be difficult to find in certain conditions and independent navigation devices are recommended.
