Often referred to as The Grande Old Dame of Victoria’s Alpine region, the Mount Buffalo Chalet is listed in the Victorian Heritage Register for its architectural, historical and social significance. Perched on the top of Bent’s Lookout, the breathtaking views stretch out over the famous Gorge. Built in 1910 by the Victorian Governemnt, the chalet was Australia’s first ski resort, and has served generations of skiiers, hikers and families over the years it operated.
The last few decades have seen the chalet lapse into disrepair however a conservation project has been started this year to restore and preserve the building for years to come.
