Round out your journey across the Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges by stopping off in Trentham, renowned foodie destination and home to the magnificent Trentham Falls.
Located on the Great Dividing Range just a few short minutes from Trentham’s historic town centre, magical Trentham Falls are Victoria’s highest single-drop waterfall. Pick up some provisions for a picnic beside the river and just listen to the sound of the thundering falls.
A small town with a gold, timber, farming and manufacturing past, Trentham is now winning the gourmet stakes. Tantalise your tastebuds with bread baked in a 120-year-old scotch oven, dine out at a gastro-pub with heritage gardens, and stock up on fresh, seasonal produce at local providores, orchards and olive groves.
If you’re a hiker you’ll appreciate the quality and number of walking tracks in the surrounding forest. For panoramic views of Mount Macedon, the You Yangs and the Dandenong Ranges drive up to Blue Mount or McLaughlins lookouts in Wombat State Forest. Alternatively, strap on your walking boots and explore on foot or on horseback.
Trentham is approximately 95 kilometres from Melbourne, or about one hour and 15 minutes by car along the Calder Freeway.
