Of course there are the Buchan Caves but there are many other things to see and do in the region and right in town!
Around town
Over the bridge and to the right is The Bluff Reserve, our local swimming hole and picnic ground on the Buchan River. 
Try out the Self Guided Walking Tour (copies available for guests) and learn about the history of our buildings and township.There is a river walk from the swing bridge to the Bluff Reserve.  Look out for the water dragons or as the locals call them Cocky Johns.
Try our local eateries including the Buchan Caves Hotel for a great pub meal or the Roadhouse for the best Buchan Burger (made from local beef).  The newly reopened Willow Cafe serves a great coffee and quality meals the only distributors of Pablo Coffee in East Gippsland.  

Caves Reserve
When you visit the caves  enjoy the beautiful Linakar Park at the Buchan Caves Reserve. There's some great walks and also the spring creek falls which are seasonal. There's also a swimming pool which is expected to open in Soon.  It was once filled from underground water from the caves system but due to government regulations, this was no longer allowed.

Take a day trip to McKillops Bridge.  Although its only around 80km it will take a minimum of one hour and 40 minutes to get to the bridge.  The road is windy and there are spectacular views including the walk to the little river gorge, the deepest in Victoria.  Keep going to Tubbut and return via Orbost.  This part of the drive will take approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. From Orbost to Buchan the time will be another 50 minutes.  In November the wildflowers are spectacular.

Look out for the Stockman's Camp Bush Heritage Shows held at certain times of the year.

Local events include the Canni Creek Races, Buchan Rodeo, Buchan Flower and Art n Craft Show, photography competition and display, 

Take a drive and visit some of the local sites including

Basin Creek Falls
