Where to Go in Kyneton
Things to do and places to visit in the charismatic village of Kyneton
Staying at Carrick is simply a home base for you to experience the myriad of incredible offerings here in the Macedon Ranges. To help plan your stay, here's a few ideas on where to go in Kyneton (and surrounds).
Shop Till You Drop
In Kyneton alone there are numerous galleries, homeware shops. You'll find Australia's largest collection of authentic Persian Rugs, some incredible restaurants (two with Chef's Hats), great pubs, cafes, two nurseries, a vintage record store and lots more.
Learn Something New
Now incredibly popular are Kyneton's creative workshops. Sign up for a three-day traditional stool making course right up to an eight-day Windsor chairmaking course at Rundell & Rundell, or learn to make a true English pork pie at the Piper St Food Co. Just out of town there's ceramic homewares workshops at Pom-me-granite. For love birds you can make your own pair of silver rings or take a beginners course in lead light creations at a local gallery.
The Macedon Ranges is home to over 40 wineries. You may have never heard about them, but this region punches above its weight, with chardonnay and pinot noir (two cool climate wines), that do particularly well up here.
Unlike the Yarra Valley and Mornington where wineries line up back to back, the Macedon Ranges wineries are spread out, so chose your route and taste some of the best wines in the country, right here. Passing Clouds, over near Daylesford, does a great lunch Friday to Monday, but you must book.
Things to Do Near Kyneton
Just a short drive is Daylesford, and Hepburn Springs, known for its spa treatments; historic Hanging Rock; Holgate Brewery at Woodend; the Wombat State Forest (home to mountain bike trails); and the Radio Springs Hotel in Lyonville (a classic country pub offering great craft beer, fine wines and a terrific menu).
