Springtime Wanderings

Spring has sprung! Time to get out from under the doona, stretch the legs and break that winter hibernation.

Whether you're a waterfall chaser, keen angler or avid bird enthusiast or simply looking to visit a country market or open garden - there's plenty of springtime fun to be had in Murrindindi Shire.

Our lakes and rivers are brimming and our waterfalls are putting on magnificent displays after abundant winter rains.


Be among the first to experience the recently opened Art on the Great Victorian Rail on foot, bike or horseback.

If driving is more your thing, meander through the Kinglake Ranges stopping off along the Dindi Arts Trail.

Explore 32 hectares of riparian wetlands at the Yea Wetlands, home to many unique Australian native marsupials, birds, amphibians and aquatic animals.

Close to capacity, Lake Eildon is looking particularly impressive at the moment - throw in a line, cycle around the lake or treat the family to a luxurious houseboat holiday.

Visit one of our wondrous waterfalls, including the popular Steavenson Falls in Marysville and Masons Falls in Kinglake National Park.

With more than 1000 km of unsealed roads and trails across Murrindindi Shire, spring is a great time to find your piece of gravel riding paradise.

Sample local food, wine and brews at one of our many cafes, pubs and restaurants on offer.

Sit back, relax and enjoy some of the live music on offer at the Foggy Mountain Music Festival and the Marysville Music Weekend, or join in another event happening in the region.

Make a weekend of it and stay at a riverside caravan park, campground or luxury bed and breakfast with a range of accommodation options on offer.
