The popular small town of Buchan is located just over 45kms north east of Bruthen and the iconic Snowy River is only about 10kms east of the town. Buchan was first settled by Europeans in the late 1830’s when, like the towns of Omeo, Benambra, Bruthen, Ensay and Swifts Creek, farmers from the Monaro region of NSW travelled south, looking for farming land. Buchan offers a variety of accommodation and food options, a 9 hole golf course and a scenic valley location. Famous for its limestone caves, where visitors can enjoy tours through these ancient natural formations, Buchan is a must see destination in this part of the High Country. Accommodation in cabins and also campsites are available, with bookings required. Detailed information on the Buchan Caves Reserve can be found here.
