Your guide to Mansfield
All About Mansfield
In the foothills of the Victorian Alps, Mansfield is a beautiful rural city and a wonderful place to spend some time connecting with nature. Mansfield sits at one end of the Great Victorian Rail Trail, which offers views of the nearby mountain pastures and bushland that is ideal for horse riding, biking, and four-wheeling.
Water activities are plentiful here, and you can rent a jet ski or boat to take out on the manmade Lake Nillahcootie, or you can spend a more relaxing day by the water. Mount Buller and Mount Stirling are less than an hour away by car, and you can ski down the legendary snow-capped slopes in the winter.
Outside of town, there’s a burgeoning vineyard scene with cellar tours, picnics, and tastings available at a few wineries.
In the city proper, you can spend time working on your short game at the local golf course, catch up on your pleasure reading at a cafe, or learn more about the history of the city at the Mansfield Historical Society.
How do I get around Mansfield?
If you’re driving in from the nearby Melbourne Airport (MEL), you can get to your Mansfield holiday letting by car in about 2.5 hours. Bus connections to Mansfield are available, and the journey will take around four hours. Most must-see locations in the surrounding area are at least 20 kilometres away, so it’s best to hire a car at the airport for your stay as taxis and ride-hailing services are a bit more difficult to find in a pinch. If you’re staying within the town centre, you can choose to rent a bike or walk, but a car will be necessary to reach accommodations that are a bit more remote.
When is the best time to stay in a holiday rental in Mansfield?
Sitting in the shadow of the mountains, Mansfield’s temperature and climate stays mild and pleasant almost all year round. Winters are mild in the city, but nearby Mount Buller gets plenty of snow on its ski slopes. On the winter solstice, the Mansfield Lantern Festival fills the city with vendors, performers, and artists using light and fire as their mediums. If you’re planning on visiting in October, don’t miss the unique Mansfield High Country Festival with its colorful parades and fireworks displays.
What are the top things to do in Mansfield?
Mount Buller is a perfect day trip from Mansfield. In the winter, skiers and snowboarders have over 300 hectares of land to race down and explore for all expertise levels. In the summer, the lifts are still in operation for bikers who are looking for a thrilling ride down the mountain.
Alpine National Park
Located right next to Mansfield, Alpine National Park is Victoria’s largest national park and home to the state’s tallest mountains, Mount Bogong and Mount Featherback. Here you can ride horseback through the wildflower-covered mountainside, white water raft through the Mitta Mitta River, or backcountry ski through the snow gum forests.
High Country Maze
Less than 15 minutes from Mansfield you’ll find the High Country Maze. With hedges and a surrounding garden, this attraction survived over six years of drought to become an imposing 40-square-metre labyrinth. This is a tranquil attraction complete with luscious gardens, a coffee and milkshake café, and a popular gnome hut.
