Mount Buller is a mountain in the Victorian Alps of the Great Dividing Range in Victoria. It has a relatively moderate elevation of 1,805 metres.
The summit can nearly be reached by car.
Mount Buller Visitors can drive all the way to a village only 500 metres from the summit and walk the final stretch, making it a fantastic place to enjoy the sweeping views around the mountain.
Of course the mountain can also be summited entirely on foot via the Klingsporn walking track.
This is an eight kilometre walk on a well defined walking track.
More adventurous hikers can talk a detour on the track called the, “Thank Christ Corner,” which allows you to go off track along Shoulder Spur to Mclaughlin Spur all the way to the summit. McLaughlin Spur boasts fantastic views all the way to the summit.
Mount Buller also offers Victoria a number of winter sports during the wintertime when the mountain is covered in snow.
Visitors to the mountain can enjoy the nine kilometres of cross-country trails the mountain provides. The trails are easily accessible and equipment is available for hire at the multiple on-mountain outlets. Mt. Buller is also renowned for its downhill skiing and snowboarding.

If you are looking for a more Arctic experience, you can also book a sled dog tour.
As part of the tour, you get a meet and greet with the huskies, a photo session, and a run through the trails on Mt. Buller, lead by your pack of sled dogs.
There are a number of different tours of varying length available, ranging from 10-minute runs to 3.5-hour runs.
The mountain offers an interesting snowgaining course (kind of like a mountain side scavenger hunt) as well as a number of snowshoeing trails.
Telemarking (free-heel skiing) is another popular activity at Mt. Buller. The ski and snowboard school on the mountain offers lessons for those who are interested in learning to telemark ski.
Of couse, what would a mountain be without the childhood classic tobogganing? The mountain has a number of tobogganing areas that are great fun for anyone, no matter what age.
