Mt. Buffalo

 Victoria, Australia

 

Situated 320 km north-east of Melbourne, Mount Buffalo is one of Victoria's, and Australia's, oldest skiing resort destinations. It owes its name to the bovine impression of a large rocky outcrop seen on the drive up to the top ski area. Visitors were drawn to the magnificent views as early as the 1850s and an alpine club was established in 1883 to promote tourism. Australia's first ski tow and ski lifts were installed here in the 1920s and 1930s. Mt Buffalo is considered to be a particularly good resort for families. It offers good beginners slopes, as well as more advanced tracks. There are also cross-country trails and toboggan courses, ski hire and ski schools. Hang-gliding, abseiling and horse riding are also possible within the park.

"This is the message which we have heard from Him* and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice

the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood

of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and

the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us

from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us."

( * Jesus )   Letter - 1st John  ch.1  vs.5-10.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
