Your food and wine adventure in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges isn't complete without a visit to Kyneton, a gold rush village that punches well above its weight in the gourmet stakes.

Picnic on Piper Street

You may not do your waistline any favours by lingering along Kyneton's Piper Street, a modern-day gourmand's paradise long known for its heritage buildings and antique dealers.

Enjoy an Italian-style farm-to-table dish and a glass of local wine at Aperitivo Food and Wine Bar. Visit Annie Smithers' Bistrot for acclaimed French cuisine with a produce store packed full of seasonal preserves. The Royal George Hotel serves up city-style dishes using nothing but the best local produce, and Mr Carsisi brings the Middle East to the Macedon Ranges.

Make sure you pick up a bottle of Kyneton Olive Oil, made by second-generation Trovatello family olive growers and lunch at Pizza Verde. Monsieur Pierre will ply you with coffee and take-home meals plus Istra smallgoods for impromptu picnics.

History and heritage

Your journey around Piper Street will have you wandering along nineteenth century granite streets lined with bluestone architecture. Grab a small piece of history at one of the local antiques and galleries, or find out more at the Kyneton Museum.

The great outdoors

Make the most of Kyneton's vantage point on the Campaspe River. Pack a picnic from the town's bounteous suppliers and relax by the river or in the historic botanical gardens. Celebrate the region's abundance of natural mineral springs and fill your flask from the pump at the Kyneton Mineral Springs.
