Located on Melbourne's doorstep, the Macedon Ranges is a diverse collection of unique villages and natural landscapes less than an hour's drive from Melbourne along the Calder Freeway, and only half that time from Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport.
Tour the Macedon Ranges and take in what the region is best known for - historic stone buildings, glimpses of Mount Macedon at every corner, boutique cellar doors, fresh farm produce, boutique shops with windows full of treats, exquisite gardens, all manner of specialist art galleries, and restaurant and cafe serving the best of local produce.
Wander the streets of rural villages and take in the atmosphere and discover boutique shops and other treats, be taken by the natural beauty of the Macedon Ranges Regional Park and Hanging Rock, eat and drink your way around the region, or feast your eyes on the floral wonderlands of world class nurseries and private gardens that are open to the public.
Local towns include: Gisborne, Kyneton, Lancefield, Hanging Rock, Macedon, Malmsbury, Mount Macedon, Riddells Creek, Romsey, .Woodend.
Macedon Ranges is home to several popular recreation areas, including Hanging Rock Reserve and Macedon Regional Park.
When I think of Macedon (having lived there) I think of Hanging Rock, the enormous Memorial Cross on top of Mount Macedon, Anti-Gravity Hill, Hanging Rock Racecourse and Picnic at Hanging Rock.
