Travel the awe-inspiring Black Spur to discover scenic attractions ranging from snowgum woodlands to rainforest in the Yarra Ranges.

Victoria's giants

Wind your way through the immense mountain ash trees of the Black Spur to Marysville, a town surrounded by forest walks.

Walk the Tree Fern Gully trail or drive to Steavenson Falls, one of Victoria's highest cascades with a thunderous 82-metre drop. Stop by Victoria's biggest tree, a 400-year-old 85-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. Visit the Californian Redwood Forest and watch the light strobe beautifully through the picturesque linear planting.

Mountain views and rainforest walks

Drive to the summit of Mount Donna Buang to gaze out from the canopies of giant eucalyptus trees on the skywalk at Mount Donna Buang Rainforest Gallery.

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