Macedon

Indulgence in secluded surrounds

At the base of Mount Macedon’s southern slopes is the village of Macedon, with streets softened by established trees and a quiet town centre with all the facilities you would expect of a country village.

Macedon was originally known as Middle Gully, and the town sprang up when gold was discovered in 1851. The fledgling township provided supplies for the weary travellers heading north to try their luck at the gold fields and in one week in 1851, more than one ton of gold was conveyed through Macedon on route to Melbourne.

In later years, wealthy residents built large homes at upper Macedon to take advantage of the pure mountain air and escape the hot summers of Melbourne. With the coming of the car, many were converted to guest houses and the whole area then developed a reputation as a popular tourist destination which is still firmly established today.

During the week, and even more on weekends, Macedon’s quality eating establishments hum with happy diners. At Ida Red you can eat wood fired pizzas made using ingredients from their sustainable vegetable garden. Kick off your day with breakfast or lunch at Mr Cafe, and at Olive Jones taste your way through a menu that reflects the establishment’s seasonal focus by a large outdoor fireplace. For beautiful views and a wine list to die for, stop in at Macedon Wine Room.

Don’t forget to take a drive down Honour Avenue which leads to Mount Macedon Road. The spectacular avenue of oaks honours the 154 men and women of Macedon and Mount Macedon who enlisted for service during the World War I.
