Murrindindi River is a 11.4km, grade 3 One Way hike located in Murrindindi Scenic Reserve Victoria. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

The Murrindindi River hike starts/finishes at the Suspension bridge or the Cascades picnic area. This hike follows the Murrindindi River valley and extends the entire length of the Reserve. The trail crosses over five footbridges and offers river views through a variety of forest types from tall open forest to damp ferny gullies. The route is clearly signposted and accessible from most of the picnic and camping areas.

About the region

Situated at the northern end of the Toolangi State Forest, the Murrindindi Scenic Reserve provides excellent opportunities for recreational activities such as camping, bushwalking, picnicking, fishing and mountain biking. The Murrindindi River is suitable for bathing and paddling, but is generally not deep enough for swimming or canoeing. The Murrindindi Scenic Reserve comprises 815 hectares of mixed species forest, which includes waterfalls, tree fern gullies and an abundance of birds and mammals.

Getting there

From Melbourne – travel along the Melba Highway to the intersection of Murrindindi Road just before Devlins Bridge. Turn right and drive 10 km to the Reserve then follow the Murrindindi Road south for approximately 9km until you reach the Cascades Picnic Area.
