Marysville Overview

Marysville has been a tourist destination since the 1920’s, when a rail service operated between Melbourne and nearby Healesville, and the town became popular for honeymooning couples. Today Marysville's primary industry is still tourism, which is steadily recovering since the Black Saturday Bushfires in 2009. Cradled between two of Victoria's best motorcycling roads, the Black Spur & The Reefton Spur, the town is frequented by many bikers, and during the snow season, the population of the town has been known to double or even triple.
