Mount Buller, a large alpine resort, is 150 km north-east of Melbourne and 35 km east of Mansfield. The travel distances are considerably further as they pass through the Great Dividing Range.
Mount Buller was probably named by the New South Wales Surveyor-General, Major Thomas Mitchell, on his Australia Felix expedition in 1836. Mitchell was acquainted with Charles Buller of the Colonial Office. The first recorded European ascent of Mount Buller was by the Government botanist, Dr Ferdinand von Mueller, in 1853.
