A TREK FOR EXPERIENCED HIKERS ONLY

The Buller Huts Trail is not an easy stroll through open woodland. It is a serious grade 5 undertaking for well–prepared, self-reliant adventurers, with a good level of fitness and who understand the risks of walking in a remote alpine area. Weather can change rapidly, even in summer, when people have been caught under-prepared in cold, wet and windy weather.

This is a trek not to be taken lightly.

TRAIL NOTES

The Buller Huts Trail is a circuit trek that commences on Mount Buller, high in the Victorian Alps, and can be undertaken in either direction. It is recommended though that you follow the suggested itinerary as this will allow you to tackle the most challenging ascents early in the hike when you have more energy to expend.

HISTORIC HUTS

The Buller Huts Trail conveniently links a series of historic high country huts. These include Bluff Hut, Lovicks Hut, Vallejo Ganther Hut, King Hut, Craigs Hut (a film set for The Man From Snowy River), Bluff Spur Hut, Geelong Grammar School Hut and Howqua Gap Hut. Not all campsites are located near huts and it is wise not to plan on sleeping in the huts. Typically huts are for emergency use only and may not be accessible. Ensure you are self-reliant and plan to pitch your tent in campsites nearby.
