Mount Donna Buang (Warburton)




Under 20 minutes drive from Warburton is Mount Donna Buang. Rising to a height of 1,245 metres, it is the closest snow field to Melbourne. Attractions at the summit include BBQs, walking tracks, toboggan runs, and a 21 metre tall lookout tower.

The summit features a lookout tower which is 21 metres high and gives panoramic views across the park and way beyond. It is also a popular picnic area and starting point for walks on the mountain.

In winter the summit area turns to snow play and three toboggan runs are opened. Toboggan hire and hot food available at the summit gate during the snow season.

Opening Hours:


Car parking is available at the summit through the day, however the summit gate is locked in the evening and when there is snow. At these times car parking is available at the gate and the summit can be accessed by a 300 metre walk along the road.

Cost:


Free

Review:


The lookout tower at the summit of Donna Buang is very tall and can be scary for kids. If you want to have great views then make sure it is a nice sunny day to ensure that fog or cloud doesn’t obstruct the view at the summit. Call into the Rainforest Gallery Skywalk which is 10km before the summit. There are some walks from the summit.
