Discover Dindi

Asset 6
Ride Dindi

Looking for a place to escape and unwind? A place to slow down and connect with nature? Just a short drive to the north east of Melbourne, you’ll discover the Murrindindi region, an area of stunning natural beauty - from the Goulburn River flats to the rugged peaks and cool temperate rainforests of the Great Dividing Range. If you enjoy fern walks and majestic waterfalls, water sports and fishing, winter snow play, local history, fine food and wine, cosy getaways or a relaxing camping holiday, this spectacular area has it all.

This is Melbourne’s closest natural playground, rich with national parks, state forests, Lake Eildon, Lake Mountain Alpine Resort and the magnificent Goulburn River. So many incredible, awe-inspiring locations right on the city’s doorstep.

Scattered throughout these spectacular hills and valleys are the charming towns and villages of Marysville, Eildon, Yea, Alexandra, Kinglake and surrounding districts.

But don’t just take our word for it, come and discover ‘Dindi’ (as the locals call it), for yourself. Our natural wonders, welcoming towns, legendary country hospitality, delicious food and wine, and vibrant events – you can choose to do more, or less…as you like, naturally, in Murrindindi.

🚶‍♂️🌅 EILDON PONDAGE WALK ANYONE?🎣🚴‍♀️

🛍🚻The northern side of the lower pondage along Riverside Drive is close to the main shopping area of Eildon and home to the large Lions BBQ Picnic Area, toilets, undercover and outdoor seats and tables, as well as a children's playground.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦The Pondage Walk is flat and easy to navigate, making it a perfect walk for beginners or those with little ones in tow. The circuit starts from the Eildon Lions day visitor area car park, but you can jump onto the trail from almost any of the pondage visitor areas along the waterfront.

🚶‍♀️Walk along Riverside Drive follow the path all the way to end of the road. Cross the Eildon Pondage Power Station over the Goulburn River and follow the Futurefish Eildon Fishing trail past a series of seating benches and fishing spots. On your circuit you'll find plenty of Instagram worthy shots as you'll pass two pituresque jetties and cross over the Goulburn Valley Highway Bridge overlooking the Eildon Dam Wall in the distance.

🚴‍♀️ A popular cycling loop that takes approx. 15 minutes at a moderate pace.
🎣 Cast a line in and give fishing a go as these waters are regularly stocked with trout from the nearby Snob’s Creek Hatchery.
🦆 Sit back and relax on the many seating benches surrounding the pondage and listen to the surrounding ducks quack and birds chirp.
🌅Sunrise and sunset are great opportunities to grab that perfect shot of the pondage.

👟🌿TOOLANGI STATE FOREST WALKS🌿👟

Just beyond Kinglake sits Toolangi State Forest. Who’d have thought you’d discover rainforest on the doorstep of Melbourne?!

Situated about 60 km north east of Melbourne, Toolangi provides excellent opportunities for camping, bushwalking, picnicking, bird watching and awesome trails to explore with your fur friends 🐕🐶🐩. Yep. This is one stunning DOG FRIENDLY forest, full of beautiful trails to discover!

The forest has a number of spectacular walking trails, catering for various skill and fitness levels. These include Tanglefoot Loop, Myrtle Gully Circuit, Wirrawilla Walk and Kalatha Giant Tree Walk.

The Wirrawilla Walk winds under dense, ancient sassafras and myrtle beech trees, alongside the towering tallest flowering trees (and moss) in the world! The longer, equally brilliant Tanglefoot loop takes the better part of a day.

The Tanglefoot Track is a spectacular walk through the majestic Mountain Ash and delves into fern gullies and cool, temperate rain forests. It’s MAGICAL! The track is 9km one way, taking about 3 or so hours.

So depending on how fit and full of energy you and your pooch are, you can opt for a short stroll through to a full days hike or anywhere in between

🐾🗺Trail suggestions, background info & most importantly, a map!

🐾⛺️More dog friendly walks & camping opportunities!
www.discoverdindi.com.au/dindidogs

❗️FYI - All of these spots have limited facilities so plan ahead and don't forget the doggy bags!

ℹ️GOOD TO KNOW - Generally, dogs are permitted in State Forests across Victoria but it's always best to double check first. Remember you must keep Rover on a lead for the safety of wildlife and your dog - read up here -

👉🚌 Can't make it here on your own? Why not book a mystery doggy tour for you and your best pal! Gourmet Pawprints provides individuals with the opportunity to take their dog along and go on the best walks and dine and eat at all the best places in the region... ALL DOG FRIENDLY! The next tour is Saturday 18 April so book in quick before all spots are taken!

Just to avoid any confusion as it's written that Toolangi is a State Forest in the first part of the post but then mentions State Parks at the end. State Parks and State Forests are not the same. Most State Parks don't allow dogs but State Forests are ok except for Murrindindi Scenic Reserve and Steavenson Falls Reserve in Marysville.

Can you please edit your post to include its dog friendly but they MUST be on a lead at all times 🙏🏻

Why oh why must you encourage people to take dogs to beautiful places???
