Mount Buffalo National Park, Victoria, Australia
It's easy to get closer to nature at the spectacular 'island in the sky' that is Mount Buffalo. This particular morning greeted me with heavy rain, resulting in an overwhelming scent of clean mountain air through the forests of gum trees. With the heavy rain, the trees were wet and the colours of the bark really shone.
Mount Buffalo is home to charismatic Australian wildlife and approximately 550 species of native plants, including plants found nowhere else on Earth, such as the Buffalo Sallee tree. Sheer cliffs, granite tors, waterfalls and big views make Mount Buffalo a spectacular alpine retreat with much to explore.
