Overview

Destinations

Make your way through the charming towns dotted around Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges. Celebrate the enriching effects of the natural mineral waters, unwind at spas and wellness retreats, and sample seasonal delights and local varietals at wineries and village restaurants. Round out your trip with a wander through the region's lush parks and gardens, and delve into the vibrant creative scene.

Health, vitality and the creative spirit

Just an hour northwest of Melbourne is the greatest concentration of naturally occurring mineral springs in Australia. Daylesford and Hepburn Springs were built up around these springs and each spa and wellness centre uses the water's famous mineral properties differently to ensure maximum rejuvenation and wellbeing.

Come for the natural mineral springs and stay a little longer to discover renowned restaurants serving sumptuous regional food and wines, accommodation fit for kings, and shops and galleries displaying unique local wares.

Four seasons on a plate

You could be excused for following your stomach around the region, with even the smallest towns brimming with opportunities for the curious gourmand. Book into award-winning restaurants and load up at provedores stocked with the best local preserves, farm gates selling the freshest seasonal fruits and vegetables, cheeses and meats. Wineries, taking advantage of superb cool-climate conditions, produce outstanding sparkling wine, pinot noir and chardonnay. Choose a couple from the 40 wineries and spend an afternoon chatting to winemakers and sampling wines matched with local food.

Rugged and refined

Hanging Rock, the haunting subject of the Picnic at Hanging Rock book and film looms large over the region. Pack your own picnic and explore the Rock. Be sure to leave time for the impressive mansions with immaculate gardens in the Macedon Ranges and the heritage gardens of Mount Macedon. Stroll past pristine nineteenth century streetscapes lined with galleries, antique shops and restaurants in Kilmore, Kyneton and Woodend, while Sunbury beckons with its international cricket history and renowned local shiraz and cabernet.
