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.

🚗✨THE BLACK SPUR IS A SWEET RIDE😍🏍

Winding through the rainforest, past tall trees and ferns, with the car windows down; this is arguably Victoria’s best drive, perhaps even Australia’s best drive. This is the Black Spur, a 30 kilometre stretch of paradise between Healesville and Marysville.

Follow the Maroondah Highway out of Healesville and embark on your drive through the world famous Black Spur. Dipping and curving around each corner, the drive will take you deeper into the lush rainforests.

❄️🌲Even in winter this place is a magical wonderland, consisting of foggy and misty days with the light peeping through the towering eucalyptus regnans canopy 100 metres overhead, the air is cool and damp, and huge ferns line the roadside.

🏍Just remember, on busy weekends the road is populated with motorbike riders, the sweeping corners offering an idyllic ride for them, so it’s important to be extra vigilant.

🛍💦Once you reach Marysville there is loads to do. From stunning waterfalls, lush rainforest walks, boutique shopping, magical kids playgrounds and beautiful local food and wine. And that’s just the beginning!

Day trips from Melbourne? Last minute weekend away? Doesn’t get much better! 🙌

🚴‍♀️✨ GREAT VICTORIAN RAIL TRAIL ICONS ✨🚶‍♂️

The Great Victorian Rail Trail is a whopping 134km, but you don't need to be a weekend warrior to enjoy the best of it. We've got a few suggestions to whet your appetite of some our our fave highlights.

🚴‍♂️🚶‍♀️ Highlights on 2 wheels and 2 or 4 legs 🐾🐴

👉BEST LOOKOUT
👀The Eglington Cutting above Alexandra is one of the best we think, looking over the expanding valley below and the peaks beyond. It's a uphill trail from Alexandra through farmland but don't worry, there’s a good picnic bench at the top so you can recharge before enjoying the downhill on the way home.

👉BEST HISTORIC OOOH MOMENT
🧱Hands down the Cheviot Tunnel. You can drive directly to this one a short distance outside of Yea or make a day of it heading up to the tunnel from Yea itself. It's constructed from around 675,000 handmade bricks from a local clay pit and is 201m long - practice your cooee if you head up there! It's dark in there too when you’re in the middle...

👉BEST CREATURE COMFORT OPTION
🍴Start out from Yarck in either direction as far as you wish then drop into one of the great cafes or the pub in Yarck for some creature comforts.

👉BEST PLACE TO COOL YOUR FEET EN-ROUTE
⛺️ Molesworth Recreation Reserve just off the trail is a good spot to relax (you can camp here too) and dip your feet in the Goulburn River - can be fast flowing so be careful!

📍Access - Yea, Molesworth, Yarck and Alexandra are all good access points to the trail.
