VIEWS OF VICTORIA. / (GENERAL SERIES.) / No. 41. / SCENE NEAR THE BUFFALO MOUNTAINS. / This scene is taken from the banks of the Buckland River, which is about five miles distant from the Buffalo Mountains, as seen in the distance. These mountains are frequently covered with snow, in consequence of their / great altitude. The Buckland River is a small tributary of the Ovens River, which flows through the Beechworth / district, and eventually finds its way to the River Murray. The Bridge which is seen on the right of the picture / forms the roadway which leads from the Buckland Camp to the township of Bright.
