Stunning views over Macedon. Peaceful location. Although we didn't stay too long (very cold), we felt the magnitude and significance of the location.

Wine, food, gardens, fresh air. We loved our weekend in Mt Macedon.. we stayed in a local farmhouse and used that as our base. Most places we visited were only 20mins apart.

Worth a visit if you are in the area- excellent views to Melbourne and nice nature environment. A bit chilly in winter but a simple flat walk to the memorial cross
