Border Bushwalking Club – Buffalo Bits

Sun 21 Apr, 2024

These are four separate walks that give an idea of the variety on Mt Buffalo.  It is possible to sit out any of the walks if you’d like as they are separate and three begin at pleasant picnic areas.  I will decide on  the departure time and order of the walk according to the weather.  The final decisions will be  made on the Wednesday prior to the walks.

The Gorge is the best known of these walks and is used by many visitors to the area. It is 2.5km and has interpretive signs telling of some history the area through the eyes of Guide Alice.   It also shows the grandeur of this magnificent gorge.  There is a little up and down on this walk but the path and steps are very well formed

The walk to View Point starts at Lake Catani and is 4km return.  This walk ends with stunning views down to the valley below. The track is narrow and sometimes a little rocky.  There is a gentle climb but the end involves very short steep rock steps.  If it’s hot the lake is a great place for a dip before, after or instead of the walk.

Rollasons Falls is a lovely walk. As you approach the falls it is rocky but you don’t need to go all the way to see good views if you aren’t comfortable.  It is 4km return and has two viewpoints of this lovely waterfall.  The first 2km go down and then…you guessed it, you go up to get back.  There’s also opportunity to get wet here if you are hot.

Lake View walk is 2kms and quite a  steep climb. The end is on a smooth rock face and you are rewarded with great views down to the lake and across the Alps.

You can opt to do all of the walks or some of them depending on your whim on the day. For this reason it suits beginners and experienced walkers.

Unless you are well known to me as a walker please ring to discuss this walk with me if you are interested.  If you leave a message I will return your call as soon as I can.
