Porepunkah is a town in north east Victoria, Australia. The town is located on the Great Alpine Road, at the foot of Mount Buffalo 320 kilometres north east of the state capital, Melbourne and only 5 kilometres north west of Bright.
European settlement began in the 1830s, but it wasn’t until the discovery of gold in the 1850s that development of the town took place.
Porepunkah is a leading gateway to the Victorian skifields. The Murray to the Mountains rail trail, a popular cycling and hiking path built in a disused railway corridor, passes through Porepunkah.
