Mansfield - Places to See

Mansfield (including Bonnie Doon, Merrijig, Goughs Bay, Bonnie Doon and Howqua Hills)
Attractive service town noted for its strong associations with the Kelly Gang.
Mansfield is a very charming sub-alpine town of wide streets, old buildings and well-established trees. It is situated on Fords Creek in a pretty valley which is surrounded by the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, near the north-eastern tip of Lake Eildon. Because of its location it is essentially a resort town and an excellent winter base for those headed to Mount Buller and Mt Stirling. As such it is well-geared for the tourist dollar with a range of accommodation, ski and equipment hire shops and plenty of restaurants. The beauty of the local scenery has attracted filmmakers who have used it as the setting for the two Man From Snowy River films, The Far Country and Cool Change.
