Buchan ( /ˈbʌkən/ BUK-ən) (postcode: 3885) is a town in the east Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia. The town is situated adjacent to the Buchan River, in the Shire of East Gippsland, upstream from the river's junction with the Snowy River. At the 2011 census, Buchan and the surrounding area had a population of 385.[1] The town is probably best known for the limestone Buchan Caves and 1920s parkland which are just beside the centre of the township and is a popular destination for spelunkers.

Road access to the town is via the Gelantipy Road from the north, Timbara Road from the south, and the Buchan Orbost Road from the south-east.

FacilitiesEdit

The Post Office opened around October 1878, and at Buchan South in 1901 (closing in 1980).[2]
