Mt Buninyong Walk
Mt Buninyong – Whitehorse Bridge 13 km
The highest part of the volcano called Mount Buninyong dates from around 10,000 years ago with the crater being much older.
Koalas, wallabies and kangaroos might be seen in the reserve.
The drystone walls further down the track were built by skilled workers in the latter half of the 19th century.
Buninyong village was established in 1841 and is Victoria’s oldest inland post-contact settlement, pre-dating the gold rush by a decade.
After climbing out of Buninyong the track passes through the Ballarat suburbs of Mount Helen and Mount Clear, passing the Mount Helen Campus of Federation University.
The Mt Buninyong walk finishes at a pedestrian bridge over the Yarrowee River.
Most supplies can be purchased from shops at Buninyong and Mt Clear.
