About the Region

Explore the Macedon Ranges

The Macedon Ranges is part of the wider Daylesford & Macedon Ranges region and so easy to get to from the heart of Melbourne; less than an hour by car, or if you prefer by train.

In the Macedon Ranges you can eat and drink your way around a landscape that attracts nationally and internationally acclaimed accolades for its local, gourmet food and wine culture. Feast your eyes on the floral wonderlands of world-class nurseries and private gardens that are open to the public and explore one of the most famous natural landmarks in all of Australia, Hanging Rock.

Our wine region is thriving, with over 40 wineries producing high quality cool climate wines. Visiting our cellar doors is an intimate affair and an adventure all rolled into one.

The Macedon Ranges is a place where you can wander the streets of sleepy towns to look for bargains or just take a walk in the bush. Where you can enjoy an action packed, year round calendar of festivals, events and happenings that reflect our region’s quirky, edgy personality, and a broad range of accommodation that effortlessly services luxury and business travellers through to relaxed groups of family and friends.

Best of all, each experience in our region is remade four times a year by the changing seasons. Discover old favourites with fresh eyes amid an explosion of autumn and spring colours, cool, shady summers, or snow-dusted, snug-by-the-fire winters.

Choose any route you like; freeway, historic street, country road or Avenue of Honour and enjoy the Macedon Ranges for everything it’s worth.
