the drive to Mount Macedon takes under a hour from Melbourne. The café at the mountain is very welcoming although a little expensive and needs more variety. The walk to the cross is worth it to see the view but also to pay tribute to the fallen. Best time to travel is in Autumn.

We drove down on easter weekend to admire the autumn foliage in this lovely little country town. Although it was packed with tourists for Melbourne we found parking easily just a few minutes' walk from the famous Avenue of Honour with its glorious planting of trees which were displaying the full range of autumnal colours. A warning to be careful... More

Nice drive to the top with plenty of parking. Shop/cafe for souvenirs, meals or take away coffee. Memorial Cross with great views back towards the city and across the countryside. Various nearby walks. Quiet and peaceful.

unbelievable views and numerous walks. The place to go on a cold day if you want to view snow. The cross is a great memorial

Mt Macedon is a serene quiet place to visit with a fabulous view and some seats to spend some quiet time to remember our servicemen and women. The gardens are lovely depending on the time of the year. There is a cafe nearby to eat morning or afternoon tea or lunch.

'The Mount' as it is affectionately known by locals is a lovely day trip. Only an hours drive from Melbourne CBD, it makes for a great day trip. The drive up the mount through the picturesque mountain drives past large houses, lovely established gardens and native bush. The Summit of Mount Macedon is technically 'The Camel's Hump' a short steep... More

Ohkay. Seen the pictures, very excited. But the weather was such a bugger on that day. Strong winds, foggy and raining. But! That didn't deter us(and a handful of others) from visiting! We were surprised and I guess the foggy situation gave it a whole new level of feel to the place. Hanging rock was still as beautiful with the... More
