The district around Buxton was significantly impacted by the Black Saturday bushfires. It was isolated for several days with no telephone or power.
Today Buxton remains a small township, with a general store, a fishing and outdoors store, a town hall, a primary school, and several bed and breakfasts. It has an active Country Fire Authority station with one tanker and one slip-on unit. The Buxton Fire Brigade was formed in 1943 and officially recognised on 25 February 1944.
The Buxton Primary School opened in 1875. Buxton Post Office opened on 1 February 1873.
