Scenic attractions in the Yarra Ranges

Travel the awe-inspiring Black Spur for scenic attractions ranging from snowgum woodlands to rainforest and everything in between in the Yarra Ranges.

Checking out Victoria's 'biggests'
Wind your way past the Black Spur's immense mountain ash trees to Marysville, where you can witness the regeneration that's taken place since the 2009 bushfires.

Head to Steavenson Falls, one of Victoria's highest waterfalls, which drop a thunderous 82 metres. Pay a visit to Victoria's biggest tree, an 84-metre-tall mountain ash near Cambarville Picnic Area on the Cumberland Walk between Marysville and Warburton.

Explore the upper Yarra River and forests of towering mountain ash around Warburton. Stroll through myrtle beech rainforest to the 300-year-old Ada Tree, one of the world's largest known flowering trees.

Alpine peaks and rainforest walks
Drive up to the summit of Mount Donna Buang for winter snowplay or year-round views from the canopies of giant eucalyptus trees along the skywalk at Mount Donna Buang Rainforest Gallery.

Walk or ski to Lake Mountain's scenic lookouts for views of the Victorian Alps, Melbourne's cityscape, and the surrounding foothills of the Great Dividing Range.

See spectacular rainforest at The Beeches Rainforest Walk on Lady Talbot Forest Drive.
