Local Attractions


The Macedon Ranges Hotel & Spa lies at the gateway to the Macedon Ranges a region long famed for its spectacular gardens, wineries, mineral springs and, of course, the iconic Hanging Rock.

Less than an hour from Melbourne's CBD and 40 minutes drive from Tullamarine, Melbourne's international airport, the area has a wine industry delivering world class wines, still small enough to allow the more industrious traveller to meet the winemaker at the cellar door.

Villages, each with its own special character, dot the landscape. Try strolling into one of:

  • The cafes in Woodend and Gisborne
  • The restaurants and many classes such as cooking, furniture and jewellery making in Kyneton
  • The antique stores of Lancefield
  • The bakeries of Trentham or Malmsbury

And on the way you are sure to stumble into a local art gallery, a bluestone building dating back to the gold rush days, an organic berry farm, an olive grove or one of the wonderful cool-climate wineries.
