Getting There

Drive towards Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford.  Take the turn off to Mt Buffalo near Porepunkah.  Drive up Mt Buffalo and continue driving south (that is take the right fork just after you reach the plateau level – the left fork goes to the chalet) until you reach the Cresta Ski Area. The track begins about 100m north of Mt Buffalo Lodge, formerly known as Tatra Inn.

    There are no plans to ever reopen the eastern route to the Back Wall.
