Macedon Ranges Tours

Explore the region on a guided tour

Macedon Ranges tours

Whether it’s a memorable llama-guided hike to Hanging Rock Reserve or a private winery tour, the Macedon Ranges offers a diverse range of experiences for small and large groups. And when the tour ends, you’ve got nine charismatic and welcoming villages awaiting you to shop, eat and explore.

Wine, gin and brewery tours

Use our tour business directory below for experiences geared towards foodies, wine and gin lovers. The Macedon Ranges has over 28 cellar doors, three gin distilleries, a cider house on a heritage orchard and two craft beer breweries.

Love your wine?

You’re spoilt for choice with small group and private winery tour options in the Macedon Ranges. Taste cool climate wines our region is famous for, meet the winemaker and go on a scenic adventure on unsealed backcountry roads. Our boutique wineries are tucked away on stunning rural properties and are largely family owned. The cellar doors are sometimes extensions to the shed – wooden floors, rusty corrugated iron and well-worn timbers. We grow some of the finest cool climate grapes in the land, and make exceptional wines; scarce and diverse in nature.

Love your gin?

Over select months throughout the year, Mountain Distilling runs small, guided gin foraging tours through the forest of Mt Macedon, followed by a tasting of their award-winning gins.

Love your craft beer?

Do you have a passion for brewing? Join Holgate Brewhouse in Woodend for weekend brewery tours kicking off at 3pm from their amazing Taproom. Cost is $25 per person and includes a free 4 or 6 pack of Holgate beer. The Lost Watering Hole in Lancefield (opening mid 2022) will also be running tours of their German-style brewery – stay tuned for more.

Hike with llamas

Garden and nature tours

Love gardens and history? Join Mount Macedon Tours for small group tours of private historic gardens on Mt Macedon, including lunch at a lovely local cafe or winery.

For families and nature lovers, check out the ranger-guided night walks held at Hanging Rock Reserve on select dates during the year. Or over the cooler months, join C The Market for small group mushroom foraging tours in Macedon Regional Park, where you can learn how to safely identify wild mushrooms with an expert in the field.

Keep an eye on our What’s On page for the latest Hanging Rock night walk and mushroom foraging dates.
