Woodend

Woodend - Macedon Ranges - Victoria

Woodend's close proximity to Melbourne makes for a very popular day trip and weekend getaway for city dwellers who yearn for seclusion. Feel a million miles away in this popular nineteenth century resort town and explore the mysteries and folklore of Hanging Rock. Explore the picturesque Macedon regional Park on a self guided bike ride and have a round of golf and take in the view that awaits on the eleventh hole of the cliff-top golf course. Drop into the micro brewery for a drop of chocolate flavoured Temptress beer and satisfy your hunger at Holgate Brewhouse.

No visit to Kyneton is complete without exploring the eerie Hanging Rock. This site was made famous by Joan Lindsay as featured in the novel Picnic at Hanging Rock, recounting the events that led to the mysterious disappearance of schoolgirls while on a picnic in the reserve. Hanging Rock has now become something of a legend and visitors come to explore the massive rock formation and even climb it. There are many events held at Hanging Rock annually including the Annual Picnic at Hanging Rock, Camp Out at the Rock, Run the Rock and the Hanging Rock Races.
