Marysville in Victoria is a small town located on the outskirts of Yarra Ranges National Park. It’s surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of Yarra Valley and The Steavenson River, which offers a plethora of outdoor attractions to explore.

We had spent 8 days running around in Melbourne and felt we really needed some space, some time in nature, and to avoid the honking sounds. We had never visited this town before, but after visiting, we are sure to go back again!

Things to Do in Marysville, Victoria

This guide will tell you everything you need to know about visiting this charming rural town.

Hike and picnic at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort

Once you arrive at the Alpine Resort, a place for cross country skiing in the winter, hike to the summit for spectacular views of the surrounding Marysville area.

Visit Steavenson Falls

Located only a 5 minute drive from town is the very pretty Steavenson Falls, one of Victoria’s highest waterfalls, which earned its name from John Steavenson, who built the roads to Marysville.

Enjoy wine tasting at Buxton Ridge Winery

We loved visiting the small family owned, Buxton Ridge winery. We’re becoming big fans of boutique wines – the wines usually surprise and delight and you get more of a personal experience with the owners and their story.

Play at Gallipoli Park

Gallipoli Park is a winner for the kids: water pumping stations, spider webs, swings, and a very cool flying fox. And it’s right beside the pretty little river that runs through town.

Marvel at Bruno’s Art & Sculpture Garden

It was a magical land filled with life sized terracotta goddesses and goblins, warriors and wizards appearing from deep within the rainforest setting.
