Nature & wildlife

Daylesford & the Macedon Ranges

  • Mount Macedon, Daylesford and Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia

Capture the essence of the mineral springs during your stay in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, whether you're bathing in the waters or drinking from the source in lush forests. Wander regional gardens tended with pride, spot wildlife as you hike through rugged bush, and linger at Mount Macedon and the mysterious Hanging Rock.

Purifying waters
Discover the health benefits of water from mineral springs around Daylesford-Hepburn Springs. Explore Hepburn Regional Park and the Mount Franklin crater, and sip the waters at Sailors Falls and Tipperary Springs. See Victoria's largest highest single-drop waterfall at Trentham.

Manicured gardens
Visit Macedon's stunning mansions and private gardens on designated open days, or enjoy the botanic gardens in Malmsbury, Kyneton, Wombat Hill and Gisborne at any time. Smell the perfume and lose yourself in a world of colour in the spring and kick up the golden leaves falling from the trees in autumn.

Mountains and rivers
Wildlife abounds in the lush forests, national parks and state reserves across the region, from koalas, kangaroos and wombats to wedge tail eagles and some 200 species of birds. Leave the real world behind as you become part of this vibrant and changing landscape. Wander into rugged river gorges and volcanic craters, through blankets of wildflowers. Clamber over peaks offering panoramic views and take in dramatic rock formations like the famous Hanging Rock.
