Drive towards Bright via Hume Highway, Wangaratta and Myrtleford. Take the turn off to Mt Buffalo near Porepunkah. Drive up Mt Buffalo and once you have reached the Buffalo plateau, take the right hand option at the fork where the left leads to the chalet.
The road to the reservoir (Crystal Brook Road) is on the right about 0.7 km further on past the Parks Office, but before the sheds that house the snow clearing equipment. It is a good gravel road that follows Crystal Brook.
