The Scenic Molesworth/Dropmore Road is one of Molesworth’s hidden treasures. Starting at the Goulburn Valley Highway, Molesworth 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.
The Scenic Molesworth/Dropmore Road winds 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 it 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 blue tongues sun baking 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.

Molesworth is a beautiful Village with many properties owned by the same families for many years. Much of the beauty of Molesworth and its healthy popularion of native flora and fauna is due to the farming wisdom of the Molesworth. With the beauty of Molesworth comes the extremes of a country that can’t be tamed but can be understood and cherished. The local waterways that in just hours can become a violent intensity of rushing water destroying and cleansing and leaving just as quickly as it came. The might river that bursts its banks in flood and sweeps through the lowlands creating both health and destruction in its wake. The hills and gullies that create vortexes for fires to quickly take hold and burn ferociously.
The farming families in Molesworth have learnt to read the land and live gently with it. They’ve learnt to nurture it, holding onto its beauty, health and character and protecting its native flora and fauna.
