Adventure Guides Australia can also take you caving in the underground river (it’s fantastic), abseiling, canoeing and other various winter activities. Mount Buffalo Ski School operates from Dingo Dell in the winter and entry is free to the national park.
Cycling Bright and surrounds is famous for cycling – whether you cruise along the rail trail or climb mountains. Mount Buffalo is at our doorstep and a stunning ride. Another tip is to ride back to the Porepunkah roundabout and then turn right up Buckland Valley Road – it’s a quiet road, the gradient is comfortable and the views gorgeous.
