North East Tourist News
Marysville & District
NESTLED in the foothills of Melbourne’s closest alpine resort - Lake Mountain - are the villages of Marysville, Buxton, Taggerty and Narbethong.
Located only 90 minutes drive from Melbourne in the picturesque Yarra Valley, Marysville and surrounds are an ideal destination for lovers of nature and the outdoors.
The choices are plentiful, each allowing new memories to be made and new adventures to be shared.
A place to leave you feeling connected to the natural surrounds, the people and one another.
There is so much to do, that once here you will realise that you need to come back or spend a few more days exploring, and of course you need time to just sit back, relax and take it all in.
We have water falls, walks, world class bike tracks, snow and autumn colours which your camera will just love.
You will want to sit amongst the spring flowers and take a picnic to Stevensons River where you can relax.
MiRA (Marysville Information + Regional Artspace) offers friendly tourist information, an exciting gallery, the Phoenix Museum (exhibition about the 2009 fires) as well as a retail space stocking locally made artisan wares and produce.
You’ll be welcomed by volunteers with local tourism knowledge, inspiring exhibitions, performances and creative workshops, all surrounded by Marysville’s stunning natural beauty.
Open between 10am and 4pm daily (and other times during special events).
‘Mira’ means ‘look’ - which is the perfect connection between Tourism and Arts.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
