Daylesford & Macedon Ranges


Daylesford & Macedon Ranges

Be drawn to spectacular bush settings, the sparkle of wellness and quirky, unique experiences.

Ignite imaginations just under an hours drive from Melbourne, in a land of indulgence where every season is a fresh opportunity to plan a memorable event or conference.

For generations, Victorians have escaped to breathe in this place, to drink in its goodness. It’s purpose-built for gathering – you’ll find a bevy of venues, energetic hosts, service providers and incentives to morph your meet-up into a perfect experience.

Be lured to a grand old hotel, a Euro-style homestead, a deep-in-the forest retreat or a state-of-the-art resort. There’s accommodation to suit every size and style of gathering.

Dust off any boardroom boredom with a road trip to explore the haunting beauty of Hanging Rock. Wind upwards past ornate gardens to Mount Macedon’s summit for panoramic views. Breathe alpine air into your lungs.
