Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
Temporary reservations as sites for a national park were approved successively under the Land Act in 1898, 1908 and 1948. All these areas were consolidated under the inaugural National Parks Act of 1956 and were then listed as the Mount Buffalo National Park.

A Committee of Management was first appointed in 1918 (Governement Gazette 17 July 1918). From 1957 the management of the park came under the oversight of the National Parks Authority (known as the National Parks Service 1971 - 1983).

Under the National Parks Act 1975, direct responsibility for the management of all national parks was assumed by ther National Parks Service and the Committee of Management at Mount Buffalo became an Advisory Committee. From 1983 the National Parks Service became a branch of the Department of Conservation, Forests and Lands (VA 1034). Since 1996, Mount Buffalo National Park has been managed by Parks Victoria (VA4253).
