                                               The Experience  -  Marysville
 
 

In this Section

Established in the mid 1800's as part of the route to the gold diggings at Woods Point, Marysville is an historic little village.  In the 1900ís Marysville was a popular honeymooners spot with numerous guest houses thriving in the village.  Some of the original properties still existed until Feb 7th, 2009 when the Black Saturday bushfires razed almost every structure in the village including many of the historic remnants that remained.  Out of 500 homes and businesses just 20 survived, but each day another house or shop starts on it journey of rebirth.

Today Marysville is rebuilding from the bottom up.  What took 120 years the first time, will no doubt take many years to be totally rebuilt.  And rebuild we will, bigger and better than ever.

Marysville still has the beautiful Oak tree lined street for which it was so famous, as well as the Stevenson river making its way right through the heart of the village.  Hugging its banks are parks and gardens offering a cool spot for a summer picnic and cafes are making great coffee and superb cakes.

Marysville was always known as a village for all seasons because:-

  • In summer the cool alpine air is a relief from the city heat
  • Autumn brings the glory of the fiery reds and oranges of European trees
  • Winter has Jack Frost nipping at your nose and the evocative smell of wood smoke and
  • Spring sees bulbs, blossoms and dormant trees bursting into life heralding the start of a new cycle.

This of course still stands.
