Maysville, built in 1863 to service the local goldfields and once known for its 1920s old village charm was devastated in the February 2009 Victorian Black Saturday Bushfires. The gateway to Melbourne's closest ski fields is in the midst of rebuilding and is welcoming visitors back to the regions' accommodation, restaurants and natural attractions.
Marysville is located North-East of Melbourne, a journey which will allow visitors to view the recovery of a region which locals don't want forgotten. Marysville is a scenic one and a half our drive from Melbourne. The Black Spur drive along the Maroondah Highway will wind you through the Great Dividing Ranges, past majestic Mountain Ash and lush tree ferns into a resilient community which has its gates wide open to tourists.
The Lake Mountain Ski Resort is a fantastic all year round destination for those wanting to get involved in cross-country skiing, family fun in the snow, or Mountain Biking.
Marysville is a fantastic location for spring and summer walking, with brilliantly coloured wildflowers lining the trails around the town.
