    Go where Melburnians go to get away from it all! On this small group Macedon Ranges and Daylesford Tour from Melbourne you’ll visit one of the most picturesque regions within easy reach of the city. Highlights include a visit to famous Hanging Rock, and the arty enclave of Daylesford — a historic spa town that’s been soothing weary souls with its mineral-rich waters for decades.

    CBD pick-ups completed, you’ll depart Melbourne and head northwest towards the Macedon Ranges, taking in the picturesque scenery along the way. The bus winds its way to the top of Mount Macedon to take in the spectacular vistas. After ample time for photographs and a look around you’ll begin the descent, stopping on the way at the natural landmark made famous by a book and film — Hanging Rock. For those with the energy and inclination, there’s time to climb to the top.

    Next stop on this Macedon Ranges and Daylesford Tour from Melbourne is the wonderful town of Daylesford, which is renowned for its creative ambience. You’ll visit the gorgeous Convent Gallery — the town’s old convent, which has been transformed into a lovely gallery space. You’ll then have plenty of time to explore the village itself and purchase lunch at any of the excellent cafes or restaurants.

    After lunch you’ll travel the short distance to the adjacent town of Hepburn to visit Lavandula — a pretty Swiss-Italian lavender farm. There’s time for a leisurely stroll around the lovely European-style garden and to explore the heritage buildings, which date back to the 1850s.

    You’ll arrive back in Melbourne at around 5.00pm and be dropped off at your CBD hotel.
