Welcome to Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges.

If you are interested in wonderful produce and great food and wine, then this is the place for you.

Just over an hour from Melbourne and surrounded by hundreds of hectares of lush rolling farmland and beautiful forest our region is breathtakingly beautiful – lakes, watercourses, hills, pretty villages and distinctly felt seasons.

Why not explore our rich Swiss-Italian history, culture and architecture. Dine out at our acclaimed restaurants, congenial gastro pubs, rustic trattorias, vineyard eateries, and cosy cafes. You might dine simply or lavishly but you will dine on food produced by chefs proud to link local producers with the regions visitors.

Drink directly from our mineral springs or try our internationally award-winning wines, boutique brews, or hand-crafted ciders.

Or simply put rest and rejuvenation at one of our world-class spa facilities at the heart of your next break away.
