Pack plenty of adrenaline to discover Mount Buffalo and its unique rock formations, where extreme adventures await.

All season attractions
Pitch a tent by the banks of Lake Catani in summer and enjoy cool mountain air. Set out on bushwalks on crisp autumn mornings. Bring the family for snowplay on the plateau in winter, and watch snow cascade into waterfalls in spring.

Action satisfaction
Take the road cycle challenge to the top of Mount Buffalo, one of the oldest national parks in Australia. You'll also find great mountain biking tracks.

Tackle the sheer cliffs and imposing granite tors for spectacular rock climbing and abseiling. Embark upon the ride of your life in a powered hang glider or a microlight over the mountain.

Hire a canoe and paddle around Lake Catani at your leisure, or try your hand at fly-fishing.

Gentler pursuits
While your heart rate rests, explore your surrounds. Join the rangers for free summer activities and learn the secrets of the mountain's formation.

View breathtaking landscapes from 'Bents Lookout', 'The Horn' or from Mount Buffalo Chalet, built in 1910 on a 1,400-metre cliff face.
