Be invigorated by the pristine natural environment and diverse outdoor activities of Marysville and surrounds, just 90 minutes from Melbourne. An ideal destination for nature lovers and adventurers alike, Marysville is a delight to discover year-round.
Towering trees and waterfalls
Explore lush forests, impressive waterfalls and native wildlife against the backdrop of the Yarra Ranges. Journey to see natural wonders like the 85-metre Big Tree, which has been towering above the forest for centuries, and Steavenson Falls, one of Victoria's highest waterfalls. Keep an eye out for lyrebirds, wallabies and wombats on your travels.
Stroll along the area's plentiful tracks and trails, winding through gum trees and shady ferns, or get adventurous with a more challenging hike in the Cathedral Ranges State Park. Up the ante again on single-track mountain bike trails, or get the road bike out for a ride from Marysville to Lake Mountain. Slow down and drop a line in pristine lakes and streams, or tee off at the 18-hole golf course nestled in the Great Dividing Range.
Take the family on a snow adventure and hit the slopes on toboggans at the nearby Lake Mountain Alpine Resort. Seasoned skiers will enjoy exploring the 37 kilometres of cross-country trails.
In town and further afield
Stock up on gourmet goods for a picnic, relax with a cuppa and baked treats at local cafes, or peruse country wares and produce in the shops and boutiques.
