Sight-seeing

The Macedon Ranges form the southern end of Victoria’s Great Dividing Range and feature a diverse range of natural and cultural points of interest. The 2,379-hectare park protects forested land along the ridge of the range and offers great opportunities for bushwalking, scenic drives and picnics.

Mount Macedon is one of the highest peaks in the range; enjoy magnificent views from the Mount Macedon Memorial Cross and the Camels Hump viewing platforms. It is also home to echidnas, koalas, wallabies, wombats, possums and gliders and over 150 bird species.

Getting here

Mount Macedon can be accessed via the Calder Freeway. Take the Mount Macedon Road exits north of Gisborne or Woodend exit and follow the signs to Macedon Regional Park.

Things to see and do

Enjoy a leisurely picnic at one of six picnic grounds spread along the ridge of the range. There is ample opportunity to explore the park on foot via a series of walks of varied levels, that make up the Macedon Ranges Walking Track.

A number of multi-purpose tracks below Bawden – Douglas Road and other specified roads and tracks within the park provide cyclists with a variety of terrain and landscape to explore. Horse riding is also permitted in the park, and riders should remain on defined roads and tracks.
