Macedon is a lovely town with few locals scattered at the foot of the mountain. To approach Macedon is easy if you are coming from south. You can either turn off the Calder Highway into Mt Macedon Rd then turn left at Honour Ave, or continue along the highway past Mt Macedon Rd and turn right into Nursery Rd. Having sighted Port Phillip from its summit he named it after Philip of Macedon. Stone-grinding sites indicate that the mountain was being used by Aborigines long before. Clean & green truly refreshes you with its specialities in native hurbs-shrubs and trees, cottage plants, perennials & annuals, all in lovely botanic setting. Beautiful gardens combine lush floral collections with sweeping lawns, pavilions and circuitous paths. Taken as a whole they are now considered one of the most important collections of colonial gardens in Australia
