Things to do

Breathe in nature. Outside the air is crisp and clean and there’s a vast expanse of forest to discover. In this pristine environment, the cares and concerns of everyday life become distant thoughts, overtaken by the refreshing landscape just waiting to be explored. Be inspired by unique encounters exploring towering trees, impressive waterfalls, native wildlife and lush forests amid the backdrop of magnificent mountain ranges.

Take a hike. Collect local produce and handmade delights for a picnic and take the family on a journey through gentle hills, past rivers and waterfalls into the mountains and forests where native wildlife abounds. Be invigorated by a walk along one of thirteen tracks and trails. Pick-up a Marysville Trails brochure at the Visitor Information Centre or download the free Visit Marysville App to plan out your day.

Enjoy the great outdoors. Marysville’s diverse landscape lends itself to a range of outdoor pursuits and offers endless hours of activities to entertain the entire family. Set off on two wheels around town, on a trail or off road with over 30km of single track mountain bike trails to explore. Keen anglers can drop a line along the banks of a river or spend the day at one of the trout farms and catch the nights dinner. Golfers will be satisfied teeing off on the scenic 18 hole course, nestled within the Great Dividing Range. For the more adventurous there is the Cathedral Ranges or rock climbing, or the grueling 22km road cycle from Marysville to Lake Mountain.

Remembering and regrowth. Witness a community bound together by a sense of resilience that is both inspiring and compelling. Be captivated by the forest regeneration, a rare experience of natural regrowth budding at every turn.

Winter fun for everyone. Take the family on a snow adventure, sliding downhill on toboggans, building a snowman or catching snowflakes as they drift down from the icy clouds. Lake Mountain is a winter wonderland for both day-trippers and overnight guests wanting an accessible snow experience within close proximity of Melbourne.

Set up camp then set off. Less than two hours from Melbourne lies Marysville, the gateway to a diverse range of activities. Use Marysville as a base to explore Healesville Sanctuary and the wineries of Yarra Valley, Kinglake National Park, Lake Eildon and the Great Victorian Rail Trail.
