Macedon and Mount Macedon bursts with glorious gardens, old-world mansions and some spectacular views of Melbourne.

In and around Macedon and Mount Macedon you can visit glorious gardens, old-world mansions and nurseries.

Some of the area’s gardens are private, so time your visit for Open Gardens Scheme open days throughout the year for the chance to peek behind fences. For spectacular views and vistas of Melbourne, visit Mount Macedon’s famous Memorial Cross and lookout.

Discover the gourmand delights and start your day with a coffee from the Trading Post or Red Door. Pick up fresh seasonal produce from farm gates and provedores, and meet winemakers and taste wines at cellar doors, including Hanging Rock (be sure to grab the famous Macedon sparkling), Curly Flat, Cobaw Ridge, and Granite Hills.
