Leave the noise of the city behind and travel to Noojee, a town named after the Aboriginal word for contentment or place to rest. Surrounded by lush native bush and towering tree ferns, this picturesque town on the Latrobe River sits on the main access route to the ski fields of Mt Baw Baw and is home to a wide range of heritage and natural attractions.
Visit the Ada Tree, one of the largest and oldest surviving trees in Victoria, estimated to be over 300 years old. Or hit the Toorongo and Amphitheatre Falls Loop Walk, a one-hour circular track that visits the spectacular viewing platforms for both Toorongo Falls and Amphitheatre Falls.
Food and wine
Enjoy hearty pub meals and icy cold beer with a stunning view from the deck at the Noojee Hotel, or warm up in front of the open fire with a glass of wine in the renowned, outback-themed Toolshed Bar.
Visit the Alpine Trout Farm and watch the kids catch fish, or pull on your boots and head to the Noojee Trestle Bridge, one of the oldest wooden trestle bridges in Victoria. Alternatively, use Noojee as your base for a trip to Mt Baw Baw. Learn how to ski or toboggan on the snowfields or take to the slopes on foot or mountain bike in summertime when the ski runs transform into epic mountain trails for the green season.
