Macedon Ranges - the undiscovered.

Located right on Melbourne’s doorstep, the Macedon Ranges is a picturesque region of fertile river valleys, rolling hills and tree-clad ranges, woven together by dozens of diverse towns and tiny villages. Each town is a thriving community buzzing with its own artistic, historic and culinary energy.

Rolling farmland and bluestone cobblestones, contemporary art and rural charms, dramatic landscapes that change with the seasons, world class events and out-of-the-way hiding places combine to make the Macedon Ranges region an exceptional part of Victoria, just a short drive from Melbourne and other major towns in the state.

On the way through the Macedon Ranges, you’ll pass sights that are signatures of the region - historic stone buildings, gums and elms lining the roadside, glimpses of Mount Macedon at every corner, signposts to cellar doors and fresh farm produce, and boutique shops with windows full of treats.

All hint at something worth exploring in detail.
