Buchan Valley, Australia

by Darryl Whitaker

Buchan is a town in the east Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia. The town is situated adjacent to the Buchan River, in the Shire of East Gippsland, upstream from the river’s junction with the Snowy River.

At the 2011 census, Buchan and the surrounding area had a population of 385. The town is probably best known for the limestone Buchan Caves and 1920s parkland which are just beside the centre of the township and is a popular destination for spelunkers.

Road access to the town is via the Gelantipy Road from the north, Timbara Road from the south, and the Buchan Orbost Road from the south-east.

Buchan Caves Reserve boasts an impressive system of walking tracks. For the short easy walks, all you need are sturdy shoes with good tread and comfortable clothing. For the longer and more demanding walks such as Reserve and Granite Pools Tracks, a reasonable level of fitness, good boots and plenty of water are recommended.
