Snowy River National Park

Snowy River National Park

Address: Buchan Orbost Road, Buchan, Victoria 3885

Freecall:  131 963  


The Snowy River is renowned for canoeing and rafting, and the Snowy River National Park is ideal for those who appreciate magnificent forests, rugged gorges and wild landscapes.

McKillops Bridge is one of the few places with conventional vehicle access to the Snowy River. The Deddick River meets the Snowy just upstream of the bridge and wide sandy beaches with shallow rock pools between the rapids make this a great swimming spot.
