We are located in the Macedon Ranges, which is the geographic centre point of Victoria, Australia and only 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD and nearby to the airport! The Macedon Ranges is home to incredible nature spots, markets, gardens, friendly thriving communities, great food, beautiful wineries and stunning sunsets. In particular, we are known for the stunning, 'Hanging Rock' and infamous animal sanctuary, 'Edgar's Mission'. We are also nearby to the Daylesford region, which is renowned as the hub of creativity, relaxation and restoration! You can truly experience all of the diversity and beauty that this state has to offer, with our cosy home as your base. Road trips galore, in every direction!

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
The city of Melbourne is absolutely thriving, with a diverse food culture of wonderful cuisines from around the world! It is foodie heaven. It is hard to go wrong, with creative and delicious options on almost every street. Nearby, there are several great food options. Too many to name! (We will happily compile a folder of information for you) Our top favorites include, Major Toms, The Lancefield Hotel, Khao Jao, La Bonta, Ida Red and Mr Carsisi!
Cool bars
Melbourne is known for being the mecca of incredible food and wine! There is no shortage of epic bars to choose from. From classy wine & cocktail bars, to creative/arty spots. In Melbourne city we love, Naked For Satan, Borsch Vodka & Tears and Leonard's House Of Love! Nearby though, our favorite bar is Major Toms. It is lively and always has great live music! Our particular area, is famous for wineries, so wine drinkers will be in heaven here!
Cozy cafés
Our favorite nearby cafes for friendly customer service, great food and coffee, we suggest - Mr Macedon, Jed, Verdure and The Trading Post! As we mentioned above, the Macedon Ranges area and Melbourne City, have a plethora of great food options and a thriving coffee culture!
Retail therapy
We have so many unique, artisan, local shops to indulge your senses! From handmade/specialty item shops, to larger centres. Melbourne city really covers all bases! We really love to shop in the Northern suburbs though, as we love to explore for items that are a little bit different! We highly suggest the quirky, streets of Brunsiwck and Fitzroy for this!
Bit of culture
Melbourne has a very strong and diverse culture! Wonderful art galleries, theatre, museums, parks, food, coffee, drinks and music galore! It is a beautiful city, with much to explore and learn about!
Walks in the park
For a walking experience like no other, we suggest heading to The Botanical Gardens, also know as 'The Tan', in the heart of the city and you wouldn't even know it! A gorgeous spot for a picnic. They even hold an outdoor cinema throughout the summer! This is just our favorite but really there are endless amounts of incredible nature spots all around us. Our local park, is nearby to the house and offers a great, tree-lined play area for kids!
Spot of exercise
The Macedon Ranges, is home to many yoga and fitness classes! We also have a local golf-course. We can supply more detailed information on this, by request!
Day tripping
We absolutely love road trips! Our favorite spots to head to are - Hanging Rock, Trentham Falls, Daylesford, The Mornington Peninsula, South Gippsland, Phillip Island, The Great Ocean Road, Torquay, The Dandenong Ranges, The Yarra Valley and The Murray River! Victoria is also know for having some of the worlds most incredible beaches! We are at the centre of Victoria, so there is something to see in every direction!
