Things to do at Mt Buller

Aside from the special activities on race weekend, Mt Buller and Mt Stirling in summer is full of cool things to do that don’t necessarily revolve around bikes, so make sure you bring your friends and family members as well so they can get into the variety of other activities on the mountain.

Event Expo

The centrally located Village Square will be the centre of the event with Sponsors’ Expo and event information set up during the event. The Square is a great place to hang out with a massive bronze statue of the Man from Snowy River riding his beast overlooking the scene, the iconic clock tower, park benches and paths all amidst an outcrop of Snow Gums right in the centre of it all.
