Built in 1910 by the Victorian Government, the Mount Buffalo Chalet is listed in the Victorian Heritage Register for its architectural, historical and social significance. Closed since 2007. A glimpse inside shows century old fittings and living conditions. You can appreciate the grandeur of the building from the outside and explore the terraced European Garden which in spring time is a mass of stunning colour.

If you only have a short time to spend in Mount Buffalo National Park, the Gorge is the place to visit. Home to historic Mount Buffalo Chalet, the Gorge is perched on 200m sheer cliffs and commands fantastic views over the Alps. Enjoy one of the easy but rewarding walks and bring a picnic.

The Gorge is a perfect daytrip for people holidaying near Bright. There are picnic facilities and toilets, including accessible facilities for disabled visitors. And there's plenty to do, with a number of viewpoints from which to enjoy the stunning Alpine panoramas, the chalet and a range of walks. Some of the walks have benches for rest stops, making the Gorge an excellent place for people who are less mobile.
