The original Buchan pub is believed to have been built in the 1850's and has been an iconic part of the Buchan community for many years.
The pub was lost to fire on 8 April 2014 and the rebuild of the current pub was via crowdfunding. An amazing effort!

where the Buchan River meets the mighty Snowy River. It is a great place for a picnic, BBQ and a swim.
Basin Creek Falls are a spectacular sight. The walk into the falls is around 30 minutes, but allow yourself longer to soak up the view.
The walk in is relatively steep, so sturdy footwear is recommended
as you will be on a narrow path, climbing over rocks.

Suggan Buggan is a ghost town in the remote wilderness of northeastern Gippsland and well worth the drive. It is a 160km (3 hour) return trip so pack a picnic lunch.
At Suggan Buggan there is a schoolhouse built in 1865 by Edward O'Rourke, an early holder
of the Suggan-Buggan run. The slab and shingle single room schoolhouse was built for the education of Edward's 11 children.
Seldom Seen Lookout is a great day out. This lookout provides 360 degree panoramic views of the
amazing remote wilderness of Far East Gippsland. This is a 120 km, 2 hour return trip. The roads are
narrow and windy. Sections of it are dirt and rugged, requiring AWD/4WD access.
This is a short but steep walk bringing you to the aerial view of this not-so-little river which has
sculpted its way through the volcanic rock forming the breathtaking Little River Gorge. At 600 metres, it is Victoria’s deepest gorge. The walking track is 800 metres return. It is a relative easy walking track with some areas of uneven terrain.
The falls can be observed by parking in the parking area and walking back over the bridge. There is a walking track off to the side of the bridge. It is a relatively easy walking track with some areas of uneven terrain.
You can also walk down to the base of the falls but it is not for the faint hearted. It is steep and requires good footwear along with a good level of fitness.
A visit to McKillops Bridge can be incorporated into your trip to the Little River Falls and Gorge.
Located in the Snowy River National Park, the iconic McKillops Bridge is one of the most spectacular bridges in the world. It was a significant engineering feat at the time of being built.
The road spans the Snowy River and was built by the Country Roads Board between 1931-36. The deck is 255 metres long and stands high above the river. Downstream are the remains of the original McKillop Bridge washed away in 1934, a day before it was due to be opened. It is hard to imagine, but when the Snowy River floods it does lap the bottom of the bridge.
