Lake Buffalo is a Goulburn Murray Water storage on the Buffalo River, 24 km south of Myrtleford (280 km NE of Melbourne). It lies at the foot of the western slope of Mount Buffalo National Park, and is a popular fishing, water skiing and picnicking venue.
Lake Buffalo was originally planned as a two-stage project. Stage one involved the construction of a 31 metre high and 600 metre long earth and rockfill embankment, with a gated primary spillway and outlet works located within the dam wall. This structure was completed in 1965,
