Your guide to Merrijig

All About Merrijig

This tiny mountain town roughly 2.5 hours northeast of Melbourne is a popular starting point for exploring the alpine playground that is Mount Buller. It’s believed that the name Merrijig is derived from the Aboriginal word meaning “well done” — a worthy refrain should you happen to secure your Merrijig accommodation during the snowy season, when skiers and snowboards from all over the country flock to Mount Buller to lay tracks on its 300 hectares of well-groomed terrain. In summer, Merrijig packs in the outdoor activities, from horseback riding through the Boorolite Valley to two-wheeling it along the legendary Australian Alpine Epic Mountain Biking Trail to cool-off dunks in the gentle Delatite River. Once you’re ready to rest your bones and refuel, Merrijig lays out an impressive collection of bars, bistros, and casual cafes for a town of only 600 inhabitants.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Merrijig

Summer is a great time in Merrijig, when the town's lush green landscape offers a quiet escape from everyday life. The area is less crowded between June and August. In winter, guests can enjoy snow activities at nearby Mount Buller and Mount Stirling, and still have plenty of time to enjoy the views and scenery Merrijig offers. Winter is also when the town hosts its annual snow festival, featuring fun activities like ice carving. The rest of the year, visitors can relax amid the beauty of nature and enjoy a self-guided stroll along the winding trails or nearby hills surrounding Merrijig.

Top things to do in Merrijig

Mount Buller

The snow-covered mountain peaks at Mount Buller offer the perfect opportunity for an adventurous day trip. Not only is the terrain here top-notch, but the views from the mountaintop are quite breathtaking. Visitors can take in the beautiful scenery on a long winding toboggan run or hit the slopes with a pair of skis or snowboard.

Alpine National Park

Just 44 kilometres from town, Alpine National Park lets you view a range of native animals in their natural habitats including rare birds, wallabies, and koalas. The landscape is made up of mountain peaks and grassy plains ideal for an afternoon hike. Check out Victoria's tallest waterfall, Dandongadale Falls, as it flows over the dramatic cliff faces into the Ross River below.

There are more than a dozen wineries located within an hour's drive of Merrijig, near the town of Mansfield. The area is a gateway to Victoria’s high country, where you’re likely to find standout bottles of Shiraz, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. Complete the experience with a unique wine blending class or explore one of the 19th-century cellars for a glimpse into the region's history of winemaking.
