Leave the noise of the city behind and enjoy Noojee!

Noojee is named after the Aboriginal word for contentment and place to rest. This picturesque town is on the banks of the Latrobe River and is home to a wide range of heritage and natural attractions.

Noojee is a place of great natural beauty, surrounded by dense mountain forests and rolling green hills and you can visit a landscape of thick bush, fern gullies and lush green pastures.

In Noojee, take a stroll around the town and discover the Loch Valley Ralph Cornwall Tramway Walk and the Water Wheel Walk or just west of Noojee is the historic Noojee Trestle Bridge No.7 which was originally built in 1919 as part of a railway used to freight timber out of the district. 

This huge bridge has been restored and is the highest example of its type in Victoria.  A series of steps lead from the car park at the base of the bridge to the top where a walking and cycling trail has been constructed along the former railway line.

 

 

A short journey east of Noojee is the Toorongo Falls Road, which follows the river along its journey through a scenic valley until it reaches the Toorongo Falls Reserve.  At the car park is a 750 metre walking track through the tall wet forest to the Toorongo Falls.  A longer loop walk to the impressive nearby Amphitheatre Falls can also be undertaken.

If you have time, just 45 minutes from Noojee you can learn how to ski on the Mt Baw Baw snowfields or take to the slopes on horseback for a ride through the bush in summertime.

Walk through rainforest to the Ada Tree, a giant mountain ash that's one of Victoria's largest trees.  Around 270 years old, it's about 76 metres tall with a circumference of 15 metres. From Noojee, follow Yarra Junction–Noojee Road and turn at Big Creek Road to where the trail begins at the car park.
