Suitable for all levels of walking, this fully-guided short hike (3km) explores highlights of the beautiful plateau of Mount Buffalo. At the end of the hike enjoy bubbles and canapés, overlooking the spectacular views of the High Country.
Where: Bright, High Country
We depart from the centre of Bright around 4 pm in the afternoon and drive up to the plateau of Mount Buffalo.
Mount Buffalo National Park is one of the oldest in our country and home to some unique plants found nowhere else in Australia.
Learn all about these and explore some of the distinctive rock formations on a short, well-graded hike while enjoying unbroken views across the High Country landscape.
At the end of the hike relax with bubbles and wines from nearby vineyards and delicious canapés, prepared using the best ingredients from local producers.
You will be returned to Bright at the end of the day.
