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.

🐾🗺EXPLORE DINDI WITH MANS BEST FRIEND 🗺🐾

🐕🐶 ALL DOGS GREAT AND SMALL🐶🐕

Got a four-legged friend? Here are some of our best regional spots to explore for dog owners (or non-dog owners.) Be excited, there's some real gems spread from one end of Murrindindi to the other!!⭐️🌿💛

🌳🌿🥾Let's kick off with TOOLANGI STATE FOREST. Here you'll find the fabulous (and relatively short) Wirrawilla walk between broad ferns and towering trees. To get all legs pumping you could tackle the Myrtle Gully or Tanglefoot trails, both around 10km in length, or join the two together to ensure a happy and tired dog!

🌳💦⛺️ MT DISAPPOINTMENT STATE FOREST. There's a couple of shorter trails here including the walk to Strath Creek Falls and the real bonus is the ability to camp here at one of 3 camping areas. Your dog's first camping escape?

🌳🚣‍♀️⛺️BIG RIVER STATE FOREST offers numerous camping spots by the river (and further camping areas deep in the bush - unsealed roads and seasonal closures for some of these ones.) A mecca for river paddles (of the kayak variety) it's a great place for an active weekend in company. There are several unsealed tracks to wander or just sit and stay for some time by the river.

🌳🥾👀Finally, the RUBICON VALLEY HISTORIC AREA has a fantastic mix of walks, history, jaw dropping scenery and camping. Drive up into the upper part of the valley, park up at the junction of Rubicon Rd & Royston River Rd and walk into the historic area to 'paws' and marvel at the aqueduct and trestle bridges along the trail. Alternatively, explore the Cicada Circuit trail in the valley close to the camping areas.

🚶‍♂️🛤🐾 If you're staying in one of the towns in the region close to the Great Victorian Rail Trail this is of course a 134km track with numerous walking options and all the creature comforts close by. Yea is a good base to enjoy a stroll or run up to the Cheviot Tunnel.

❗️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 Parks across Victoria but it's always best to double check first. Remember to keep Rover on a lead for the safety of wildlife and your dog - read up here -
