Located on Melbourne’s doorstep, the Macedon Ranges is a diverse collection of unique villages and natural landscapes.


Tour the Macedon Ranges and take in what the region is best known for - historic stone buildings, glimpses of Mount Macedon at every corner, boutique cellar doors, fresh farm produce, boutique shops with windows full of treats, exquisite gardens, all manner of specialist art galleries, and restaurant and cafe serving the best of local produce.

The Macedon Ranges is less than an hour’s drive from Melbourne along the Calder Freeway, and only half that time from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport.

Wander the streets of rural villages and take in the atmosphere and discover boutique shops and other treats, be taken by the natural beauty of the Macedon Ranges Regional Park and Hanging Rock, eat and drink your way around the region, or feast your eyes on the floral wonderlands of world class nurseries and private gardens that are open to the public.

With so much to see and do you'll need to stay awhile.  There are accommodation options to suit everyone - family friendly self-contained houses, quiet, romantic cottages tucked amongst the vines, gracious guesthouses and b&b farm stays where you can join in with the everyday chores.  Visit the accommodation search page for more information.  If RV or caravaning is your thing, download the fact sheet for information on local caravan parks, and Kyneton - Australia's 200th RV Friendly town.
