Pass through the tiny village of Mount Macedon, where you may want to stop for a cup of coffee or stock up on gourmet picnic supplies.
Continue winding your way up the mountain until you reach the turn off to the Lions Head Road car park in the Macedon Regional Forest.
At the entrance to the walking trail, put on your headphones and be led by a sublime multi-layered vocal and poetic soundtrack*.
This blissful experience reflects the environment, birdlife and natural rhythms of the lake, which is on Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung land.
Afterwards, head to Days Picnic Grounds for a picnic or wood-fuel barbecue** lunch. In the cooler months, make sure to bring some marshmallows to toast on the fire!
*The audio guided walk is free and can be done at any time. Find out how to pre-download the Murmuring Walk track.
**Wood-fires prohibited during fire ban season. BYO firewood.
