Since reaching an amazing 9000 likes on our Visit Marysville Facebook page, we thought we would share with you 9 reasons why we love our little region!

  1. Steavenson Falls

One of the most iconic scenic stops in Marysville, the towering Stevenson Falls are a picture of the beauty of the Marysville Region! At a towering 84 metres, you can enjoy the sights from bottom to top, with views extending past the beautiful falls too!

  1. Skiing in winter

Skiing? 2 hours from Melbourne? YES! Lake Mountain Alpine Resort is the closest and most accessible alpine resort to Melbourne, and is home to 37km of world class cross country ski trails!

  1. Bruno’s Sculpture Garden

Bruno’s Sculpture Garden is artwork at its finest! Bruno has crafted a garden full of sculptural surprises that will leave you mesmerised by the fantastic craftsmanship that has gone into all the sculptures!

  1. Marysville Walking Trails

There is nothing better than going for a walk and getting in touch with the beautiful landscape that surrounds us, and there are plenty of walking trails around the Marysville Region for you to immerse yourself in nature! With each trail unique in its own right taking you deep into the forest, you’ll come out feeling refreshed and relaxed after admiring the wonder of our beautiful landscape!

  1. Wildlife

There aren’t too many places around where you could wake up with animals on your doorstep, share lunch with a flock of parrots, or have to give way to a group of ducks crossing the road (often)! Our little furry and fluffy friends love being out and about the town, and make the area home just like the rest of us!

  1. Bathing in the cool rivers

On those hot summer days when you feel nothing is going cool you down, there is nothing better than putting your feet in a cool flowing river! Our region is home to the Steavenson Rvier, Taggerty River, Acheron River and the Little Steavenson River, which all flow into the wondrous ‘Meeting of the Waters’ making the ideal place to sit down and ‘chill out’.

  1. Fantastic accommodation and food

Everyone has the opportunity to experience their own littler slice of the Marysville region, with so many AWARD WINNING accommodation providers in the area that specialise in giving you the perfect place for a getaway. There is a variety of accommodation for everyone, even the dog! And don’t think you’ll be going hungry, with delectable food seeming to be around every corner. Try some freshly caught salmon, a delicious food fire pizza, or a platter with a view that will satisfy any appetite!

  1. The Community!

The Marysville community is one of the best! Full of history, amazing businesses and not to mention the incredible people that live here! You can’t leave here without falling in love with the area!
