Explore the Macedon region during your stay

Mirkwood Forest is an ideal luxurious base from which to explore the delights of the region or to simply do nothing!

Only a 45 minutes’ drive from Melbourne, off the Calder Freeway, puts you in the heart of the Macedon Ranges… and the tranquility of  Mirkwood Forest.

One of the many special attractions, and a must for any hiking enthusiast, is the climb from the front door of your cottage to the Mt. Macedon summit – without passing through any private property!

Recent Guest Reviews

“Mirkwood Cottage provided an ideal retreat in an isolated location, yet still close to the town. The cottage was warm and cosy and when we arrived the wood fire was well stoked. Everything we needed to be self-sufficient was provided and our hosts were always keen to help with any other requirements. The verandah across the front of the cottage provided a great place to relax and watch the birds and wildlife actively moving through the bushes. The private outdoor spa was ideally located to provide another vantage point for enjoying the relaxing unspoilt views.”

“The most perfect stay we've ever had. Everything was well thought of and easy from the second we got there. From the wood fire burning and music playing when we first arrived, to the relaxed attitude of Kevin made the stay even more enjoyable. We would highly recommend and we will be back in the future.”
