Tour Details

Spend the day in the Mount Macedon region discovering scenic wonders like the iconic Hanging Rock, the Memorial Cross, Camels Hump, and three local wineries.

As you depart Melbourne, take in the stunning vistas while traveling toward Mount Macedon's famous Memorial Cross and lookout. See the Hanging Rock made famous by the Peter Weir's 1975 film of Joan Lindsay's novel Picnic at Hanging Rock. Observe the northern rural landscape from Camels Hump, a rocky outcrop formed by a small steep-sided volcano.

This tour also includes a visit to three of the Macedon wine region's finest wineries, with tastings at Hanging Rock Winery, Gisborne Peak Winery, and Paramoor Winery.

Hanging Rock's wines include the Macedon sparkling wine, uncompromisingly made with an eye to the great traditional Champagne houses of France, the brisk Jim Sauvignon Blanc, and the outstanding Heathcote Shiraz.

At Gisbourne Peak, there is plenty of seating on the outdoor deck over the water, under the shade of the verandas, or in the Fireside Room by the fire. Enjoy award winning wines at your comfort. You might want to also take The Vineyard Walk, a self-guided tour of the vineyard. Walk, read, talk, and learn. It's fun and informative and gets you into the vines.

Attracting international recognition, Paramoor's wines have received high praise coming from Australia's most recognized wine critic, James Halliday. He calls Paramoor an excellent producer of very high quality wines and has judged several Paramoor wines to be among the best in the nation.

Find yourself escaping into the beauty of Melbourne's countryside by delighting in the beautiful vistas and tickling your taste buds at the wineries as you sample their best selections.
