Overview

Mount Macedon

Escape the summer heat amid glorious gardens, old-world mansions and the ferns and waterways of Macedon Regional Park. Look back at the city of Melbourne from the top of Mount Macedon, which was originally known as Geburrh in the Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people.

Memorial views

If you're after spectacular views, you're in the right area, with stunning vistas of Melbourne and beyond from Mount Macedon's famous Memorial Cross and lookout. Visit the cross on ANZAC Day to take part in one of the country's most moving dawn services.

Take the long walk up to Camels Hump, a rocky outcrop formed by a small steep-sided volcano, which is the highest point in the Macedon Ranges. Look out across to Hanging Rock and the northern rural landscape from the top.

Up the garden path

Some of the Mount Macedon's most immaculately preserved gardens are private, so time your visit for Open Gardens Scheme open days throughout the year for the chance to peek behind fences. There are riches to behold in the public parks and reserves as well, with manicured gardens accompanying more rugged environs.

Meander through the exotic plants at Stephen Ryan's Rare Plant Nursery and enjoy the scenic walking trail at Sanatorium Lake. Enjoy panoramic views, scenic drives, picnic facilities, walking trails, and cultural and historic sites of interest in Macedon Regional Park. Keep an eye out for koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and some 200 species of native birds.

Grapes and table tops

Discover why Mount Macedon has long been considered a foodie destination. Start your day with a coffee from the Trading Post or Red Door. Pick up fresh seasonal produce from farm gates and provedores, and meet winemakers and taste wines at cellar doors, including Hanging Rock (be sure to grab the iconic Macedon Cuvee), Curly Flat, Cobaw Ridge, and Granite Hills.

Townies

Load up your two-wheeler on the train to Macedon and ride through Macedon Regional Park, or follow the walking trail to Mount Macedon. Return to town to linger over a brew or fine foods at Sitka or Olive Jones.
