Mount Macedon

The green heart of the Macedon Ranges

Tree-clad Mount Macedon can be seen from every corner of the region, even Melbourne. Up close it is even more impressive; a place home to gardens and wild bush, of natural attractions and adventure.

See glimpses of magnificent mansions and the exotic European plantings that change with every season as well as getting up close and personal with native wildlife and birds that inhabit the tall mountain ash forest.

The natural wonderland of Mount Macedon is a place to escape and enjoy contemplation. Hike the wonderful walking trails over the mountain or have a peaceful lunch at Sanatorium Lake or one of the many picnic spots that can be found in the area.

An emotive experience can be found on the summit of Mount Macedon at the Memorial Cross, which commemorates Australia’s war fallen and has views that take in the entire southern plain towards Port Phillip Bay.

There’s more to do in Mount Macedon than just appreciate its natural beauty. Sip coffee, snack on award-winning pies and stock up on local produce and wines at The Trading Post, a hub for local residents and visitors alike, or have one with the locals at the Mount Macedon Pub, another institution of the area.

Wander through galleries and their displays of local art and craft, treat yourself to a concert or even a tour at Duneira, or visit Stephen Ryan’s nursery, Dicksonia Rare Plants, just one of many nurseries that thrive in the fresh mountain climate. Stay in a tranquil country retreat set amongst English-style gardens or self-contained cottage with amazing views. Experience the tranquility of mountain life with a drive out to Hesket, Kerrie and Cherokee.

The true wonder of Mount Macedon for many visitors is the garden estates. Some of these are open to the public on occasion, while others are open year round, taking you back to a time when Mount Macedon was the playground for the rich and famous.
