Dingo Dell


Dingo Dell

Mount Buffalo National Park

A small valley amongst snow gums and occasionally visited by the plateau's resident alpine dingo population, Dingo Dell is aptly named.

Dingo Dell in winter is the ideal location for toboganning, snow play and snow shoeing. In summer it is possible to walk up the old ski slopes to the top of the ridge for views across the plateau.

Facilities at Dingo Dell include a designated toboggan slope, first aid, take away food and drink, an eating area, toilets and change rooms.

The Dingo Dell Day Visitor Centre provides an area where visitors can relax and enjoy hot food and drinks and take a moment of respite from the elements.

Inside the visitor centre at Dingo Dell you will find a range of park information including Junior Ranger activity sheets, What's On programs, park notes containing walking track maps and track notes.

The visitor centre and Dingo Dell Cafe is open 10am - 5pm Wednesday to Sunday (Mondays and Tuesdays during peak times).

Things To Do


The toboggan area is only available when there is adequate snow. Under these conditions sites will be set aside by way of fencing and signage. Check snow report on www.ski.com.au each day or local ski hire.

It’s a great site with lots of room to toboggan and build snow men or just enjoy the sights and sounds of people having fun in this stunning sub alpine environment.

There is no cost for use of the toboggan slope, which is open from 9.30am - 5.00pm when conditions are suitable. Toboggan hire is available from the cafe.
