OUR UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT

MANAGING OUR UNIQUE ENVIRONMENT

Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management is responsible for the protection, enhancement and restoration of the natural and cultural heritage of the resort. To fulfil this commitment the RMB ensures proper consideration is given to the care and protection of the flora and fauna, land, water, air, cultural and landscape values of the Resort:

FLORA AND Fauna

Mt Buller supports a diverse range of alpine flora and fauna. This includes many rare and threatened species including the Mountain Pygmy Possum. There are also approximately 196 species of indigenous vascular plants have been recorded above 1200m at Mt Buller. This brochure shows a selection of wildflowers from the Northeast mountains. The photos may assist in identifying some of the more common groundlayer species.

Please do not pick our beautiful flora as you not only take the flower but also hundreds more future flowers by taking the seeds.

WATER AND ENERGY

Water is one of the most precious resources we have and on top of a mountain we need to think about how we use every drop. Read how you can help save this precious resource. 

Climate change is impacting our fragile alpine environment - but the good news is that all visitors can all do something to help. Even small changes to our energy consumption and behaviour will help reduce the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change, and help preserve our alpine environments in the future. Find out more here. 

Waste and recycling

A simple and important thing we can all do every day to protect our environment and look after this special alpine community we love is to firstly REDUCE our waste as much as possible, and then RECYCLE everything we can. Read about waste and recyling at Mt Buller here. 

Dogs at Mt Buller
