MARYSVILLE JAZZ & BLUES WEEKEND
FRIDAY 20TH - SUNDAY 22ND OCTOBER 2017
For information about Marysville and surrounding areas:
Situated in the foothills of the Yarra Valley and near to Melbourne’s closest Alpine Resort, is the beautiful township of Marysville. The town is just a 90min drive from Melbourne that takes visitors on a journey from Healesville through the majestic Black Spur. Marysville was originally established as a stopping point on the Yarra Track, the horse-drawn route to the Jordan goldfields in the Great Divide. After some time, cutters realised the potential of the region and so large timber mills were built, logging the giant trees. By 1920s, Marysville had become a tourist destination offering walking tracks to Steavenson Falls as well as scenic views of fern loaded gullies and tall trees. Many guesthouses became established at this time and Marysville became popular as a honeymoon destination.
