Mount Buffalo, Back Wall – April 2

Mount Buffalo was first documented by explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell in 1824, and is a prominent landmark from the Ovens, Buckland and Buffalo River valleys. The massif rises abruptly from the surrounding countryside, and is visible from many different angles.

mt-buff-back-wall-2016-05 The Back Wall of the massif was the chosen venue for this autumn walk, and in fine and sunny conditions, 16 walkers accompanied leader Lesley, on a delightful 12km medium level walk.

The route led from Cresta Valley, to the spectacular granite cliffs on the east side of the Plateau, with great views all the way.

A visitor from Mansfield, and another from Newcastle, relished the amble across the snow-grass plains, overlooked by those dramatic granite boulders.

Lunch was enjoyed at the Back Wall, with the extra reward of stunning views of the Buckland Valley.
