Winter Wonderland

 

Mt Buffalo "Winter Wonderland"

Stay at Adina Lodge for easy access to Mount Buffalo:
Free use of our Children Toboggan's 

Visit Mount Buffalo - North East Victoria's Winter Wonderland
Although the snow was late coming, this season, it has now arrived and Mount Buffalo is busy with families and visitors enjoying the snowplay, tobogganing and cross country skiing. We have a fair to good cover of snow and more forecast from this Friday.

As well as the warm and friendly Cafe and ski school at Dingo Dell there is also the Cresta Cross Country ski and snow play hub where the horn road has a good snow cover for skiing or a snow shoe hike (No walkers please as it destroys the snow for the skiers and a frozen footprint can break a skiers leg). There are two portable toilets at Cresta Carpark, a small shelter (not heated) so rug up. Great tobogganing and snowplay here though.
