Mount Buffalo is an integral part of Australia’s Alps. It was named by explorers Hamilton Hume and William Hovell in 1824, who thought it resembled a giant buffalo from a distance.

The Buffalo Plateau, which has a mildly dissected surface and steep escarpments along its edges, is famous for its huge granite tors, rugged topography, and grassy high plains.

The tors are produced by chemical weathering along the surface of interconnecting regular joints in the granite.

The Cathedral is one of the best-known tors on the Plateau, and was climbed by daring tourists as early as the 1900s. The meandering trail of footprints in the snow was made by an inquisitive wombat.
