Buchan Caves Reserve has been severely impacted by the bushfires in East Gippsland on 30 December 2019. There was extensive damage to infrastructure and as a result the cabins and wilderness retreats are no longer available for booking. Current accommodation options in the reserve are Caves House and powered/unpowered camp sites.   

Caves House

Caves House is the former residence of the Moon family who ran tours of Buchan Caves in the early 1900s. Stay a night in the historic residence with all linen provided. Take in the views over the Buchan River and explore all Buchan Caves Reserve has to offer. This is the only site within the reserve where dogs are permitted. Dogs are can be walked along the Buchan River Flat and into the township but are not permitted past Caves House into the reserve.

    Buchan Caves Reserve swimming pool reopening update

    Parks Victoria and GLaWAC are working with Heritage Victoria on the commitment to reopen the Buchan Caves Reserve swimming pool and the final approval processes for the permit are occurring with Heritage Victoria.

    Under the reopening, the pool will be converted from spring-fed to a closed loop filtered swimming pool and the water treated to meet water safety regulations. 

    Subject to permit approvals and any conditions, we expect the work to be completed and the pool will be able to reopen in late November 2022.
