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!

“This was the perfect weekend getaway, the cottage was spotless and equipped with just about everything you would need for a short break. The outdoor spa was excellent; we could have stayed in there all night gazing up at the night sky! The log fire, the bottle of bubbly and all the breakfast provisions made our stay complete and stress-free, just what was needed. A huge thank you to Kevin and Bruce, we will certainly recommend this to our friends.”

“As soon as we drove into the property everything was A1. This property is so beautiful and super clean and there was nothing that wasn't supplied. The hosts were very friendly and not in your face but were there if you did happen to need something or know something about the area. We certainly will be back.”

”Perfect for a relaxing break with a wood heater warming the cottage on our arrival, spa on the deck, tennis court, DVDs and board games, not to mention the beautiful breakfast provisions. Much better location to stay than in touristy Daylesford. Colenso restaurant in Woodend is a must. Hanging rock is a nice walk.“
