The Longest Lunch, Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia
Show map

Events

Pop corks and tuck into local delicacies with like-minded visitors and locals at any one of the Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges annual foodie events, or join an event celebrating local history, art and culture or nature.

A region with a reputation for the fine things in life is bound to have reasons to celebrate. Food and wine are honoured regularly at events throughout the year.

The local artistic community frequently puts itself on show, while literature is also the subject of homage by pilgrims from near and far.

Hanging Rock is the backdrop to a host of unforgettable events throughout the year, from horse racing to international musicians.

Come on any weekend and you're sure to find something to shout about.
