For plenty of snow play fun, Mt Buller has two toboggan parks, complete with their own snowmaking machines to keep the kids happy all winter long.

Taungurung Clans - First people of the rivers and mountains
Mt Buller lies in the traditional territory of the Daung wurrung (also spelt Taungurung) language group, which spread across much of the central region of Victoria. Ethnographic sources suggest that this group was composed of nine clans, occupying the Broken, Delatite, Goulburn, Coliban and Campaspe watersheds. The lands around Mount Buller and Mount Stirling appear to have been occupied by the Yowung-illam balug clan of the Daung wurrung.
This clan was known to have occupied land near the Howqua River quarry (Youang-illum stone quarry), Mount Battery, Alexandra, the Upper Goulburn River at Mansfield, sources of the Goulburn River and Hunter and Watson’s ‘Wappan’ Run. The clan estates, including historical and archaeological sites, of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling are currently the responsibility of the Camp Jungai Aboriginal Co-operative Limited. However, there are also a number of people who claim to be traditional descendants of the Daung wurrung.
To find out more about the Cultural Heritage of the region you can visit the Taungurung Land and Waters Council website.
