The Macedon Ranges

By Darren Stones

Located about one hour from Melbourne, the Macedon Ranges provides excellent opportunities for landscape photography and a great day out.

The changing seasons around Macedon can see snow, the splendour of autumn leaves and magnificent morning and afternoon lighting conditions.

A journey in the region reveals magnificent towering gum trees, waterfalls, vineyards, volcanic rock formations, quaint villages and plenty of wildlife including rosellas and eastern grey kangaroos.

A favourite bush walk of mine is to the top of Camels Hump as it provides a panoramic vista towards Hanging Rock and the surrounding countryside.

Take a mate and enjoy a picnic at the Hanging Rock reserve and explore the volcanic rock formation which rises 105 metres.
