Marysville is located within the heavily forested mountains of the Great Dividing Range, a short drive off the Maroondah Highway between Healesville and Alexandra.Located only a 90 minute drive from Melbourne, Marysville is an ideal destination for adventure, food, wine and getting back to nature. The town centre of Marysville is situated along the shady avenue of Murchison Street which has been landscaped to reflect the town's natural environment. Street gutters along one side of the road have been replaced by a meandering rocky stream lined with native grasses featuring bridges leading to shop doorways. Marysville is an ideal spot for bushwalking, with many tracks through the surrounding forests having originally been timber tramways which were used to haul logs to local timber mills.
Marysville has a wide variety of accommodation including motels, backpackers and hotels.
