Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Mount Macedon
Marvel at Mount Macedon's peaks and luxury accommodation
Mount Macedon is a small town located exactly where you might expect: on the side of a mountain. In fact, it sits between Macedon town (at the base of the mountain) and the mountain’s peak. An hour’s drive from the ranges, the scenic journey to reach the Mount’s peak is all part of the attraction. Wind up this extinct volcano’s roads past grand homes bounded by even grander estates.
On arrival trek to the summit to be rewarded by sweeping views, remain at the foothill to take some obligatory happy-snaps, or explore the gourmet and artisanal offerings of Macedon Village. With a stay in Mount Macedon, you’ll feel on top of the world.
Mount Macedon’s most recognisable drawcard is the Memorial Cross, which can be found in the Memorial Cross Reserve. Mount Macedon will be a hit with nature lovers and green thumbs. There are manicured gardens, wild bush, and grassland. Pull on your walking boots to explore the network of walking trails, or pack a picnic lunch and make for the peaceful surrounds of Sanatorium Lake. Another popular option is Turitable Creek, which carves its way through Stanley Park and tumbles down a rocky ledge. Make for the lookout point at the top of the platform for the best vantage point. A smattering of additional picnic spots are scattered throughout the area too, and all can be easily accessed from your central Mount Macedon accommodation, no matter if you're resting up in a weatherboard cottage or a contemporary lodge.
History buffs can get their jollies from Mount Macedon too, with a handful of grand Victorian mansions in the area. Some mansions also have gorgeous gardens so you can tick off two must-dos in one stop. Hop in the car and drive along the scenic stretch of road that winds past many of the estates, or simply kick back and admire the peak’s good looks from your Mount Macedon accommodation.
