Begin your journey to the Macedon Ranges with a visit to a place of great mystery and natural beauty, Hanging Rock.

If you aren’t already familiar with the curious story behind this rocky outcrop, Acacias guide will get you on the same page with the both the new and original mythology spun around this ancient Aboriginal sacred site.

With a little help from novelist Joan Lindsay’s unnerving classic Picnic at Hanging Rock and filmmaker Peter Weir’s 1975 adaptation, you will swear you catch a glimpse of long-missing schoolgirls. Shake it off by sampling the acclaimed sparkling wines at Hanging Rock Winery.

Indulge in Daylesford’s award-winning Lake House restaurant for an unforgettable gourmet experience. Under the culinary directorship of industry doyenne Alla Wolfe-Tasker, the kitchen works magic with seasonal ingredients sourced from the finest small-scale local suppliers. Fare including rare breed pork, grass-fed beef, freshwater fish and goats’ milk cheese is hand-delivered daily.

Your afternoon might include a visit to the rustic Lavendula Swiss-Italian Farm or browse Vincent Street’s charming bric-a-brac stores for gold.
