Overview

Malmsbury

Continue your journey through the serene Daylesford and Macedon Ranges region with a visit to historic Malmsbury. Explore the lush gardens, see local artworks, and wander the beautiful streetscape lined with National Trust buildings, invoking the mid-nineteenth century diggers service centre.

Historic gardens and viaducts

Wander through the leafy Malmsbury Botanic Gardens, established in 1850 and the oldest in Victoria. Enjoy a picnic by the ornamental lake and then make your way along the walking track to the old railway viaduct, constructed in 1859 to carry the Bendigo line over the Coliban River. One of the state's largest nineteenth-century engineering structures in the state, the bridge section consists of five arched spans reaching 152 metres from end to end.

Arts and crafts

Admire the works by local artists at Malmsbury Bakery & Gallery and Tin Shed Arts. Pop into Bleak House to see sculptures presented amid 20 acres of beautiful rose gardens and orchards. For a hands-on art experience and memento of your visit, make your own jewellery at Made in Malmsbury.

Vineyards and coffee beans

Winegrowing across the region has gone from strength to strength in recent decades. Buy from cellar doors and enjoy view-of-the-vine dining experiences at local wineries like Birthday Villa, Tarrangower Estate, Zig Zag and Fontanella Wines.

Coffee fiends need not worry, with great brews available from local favourites Small Holdings and Moto Bean Café. Round out your breakfast with bakery delights from Malmsbury Bakery.

Cool waters

Slow down and get back to nature with a day by the pristine waters of the local reservoir. Anglers will have luck with redfin and trout. Finish the day with a cruise out to the Glenlyon Mineral Springs Reserve to drink from the natural mineral springs.
