‘Molesworth Scenic Trail’ is a hidden treasure that meanders along Molesworth/Dropmore Road starting at the Goulburn Valley Highway and heading towards Caveat, Highlands High country. From the Caveat end of the road you can then go full circle back through Yea or Yarck. This 14 km scenic country lane takes you back in time as it travels along the beautiful Goulburn river flats and then winds its way up into the breath taking High Country.
It wends its way slowly over creeks that sparkle with a tempting golden glitter in the sunlight. It travels along the side of rocky outcrops with cascading waterfalls spectacular after local rainfall. All the time takes you through the wooded hills and hidden valleys. With a rich treasure of wildlife visitors often stumble across a wallaby grazing along the side of the road or a wombat heading somewhere with serious intent.
Occasionally echidnas can be seen going about daily business or bluetongues sunbaking in the morning rays. Koalas are often seen snoozing in the trees or at certain times of the year the thick clouds of butterflies can extend for hundreds of metres.
The views, the bush smells, the sounds of birds just take your breath away and leave you with a heartfelt experience. There is so much to experience that it’s worth a day trip to take your time and explore Molesworth Scenic Trail. Have
lunch or tea at the local pub and stay at ‘Bonnie Brae Farmstay’ or Molesworth hotel for the night before continuing your journey.
