The Region
Minutes from Trentham township nestled at the very top of the Great Dividing Range mid-way between Woodend and Daylesford, approximately one and half hours from Melbourne.
Macedon Ranges and the Spa Country at the edge of the Wombat State Forest makes it the perfect base to explore the region. Explore this quaint township with its fine artisan produce and boutique wineries. Wonder pathways of ancient trees from Trentham to Lyonville, then unwind and relax with the locals over a cold ale or a glass of shiraz at the Radio Springs Hotel or the famous Cosmopolitan Hotel. Visit local markets and antique brica brac stores.
