The legend of the Snowy River is renowned. Here you can experience the ‘Snowy’ flowing down into the sea. Majestic stands of native and remnant coastal rainforest surround the area and add new meaning to the word green.
Our main towns are Buchan, Marlo and Orbost all within the Snowy River Country region. And Goongerah, Bonang, Bendoc and Tubbut are settlements with a genuine high country flavour. Discover the adventure, legend and romance on the Snowy River Country Trail. Meander on this loop route for one day or more and be mesmerised by the sights and sounds of rainforest, rugged high country and Victoria’s highest bridge – MacKillops Bridge. Side trips provide up close and personal experiences.
Marvel at the honeycomb labyrinth of caves in Buchan. Millions of years of rainwater seeping through limestone have created spectacular formations. Victoria’s last stand of cool temperate rain forest is showcased in the Errinundra National Park, rich also in Aboriginal culture & European history. From the forests to the sea, Marlo & Cape Conran Coastal Park provide a relaxed beach alternative, far from the madding crowds. Snowy River Country is steeped in history it is true, but you can live on the wild side here also. Raft, canoe, cave, 4WD, ocean dive or boat; be as adventurous as you like. Whatever you choose, escape from the hustle and bustle of city life is assured.
