Wander country lanes and antique stores from Kyneton accommodation
Once the gateway to other towns during the Victorian Gold Rush, Kyneton is now a destination in its own right. This is a town with character, thanks to its heritage building, old school pubs and warm country hospitality. When it comes to keeping you occupied, Kyneton doesn’t disappoint. Besides being an utterly delicious destination, this town is filled with charming bluestone buildings, local art and crafty wares.
If you’re a foodie, an excursion to Kyneton in the Macedon Ranges is not-to-be-missed; you can gorge yourself on the gourmet delights that flow from this town. With a melting pot of cuisines to choose from, map out a culinary journey from buttery French bistro plates to spice-filled Middle Eastern fare. Wake up and do it all again with melt in your mouth bakery treats and farm fresh breakfasts. Not sure where to start? Meander along vibrant Piper Street, a buzzing strip that boasts antique dealers, bakeries, local galleries and the acclaimed Annie Smither’s Bistrot.
Pick up treats from gourmet provedores – Monsieur Pierre, Duck Duck Goose & Larder, Piper Street Food Company - and seek out one of the parks or gardens for a picturesque picnic (tip: the rotunda at Kyneton Mineral Springs is one of the best spots). Early risers can head to the farmers’ market, which happens the second Saturday of every month. Fans of fascinators can time their visit to coincide with meetings held Kyneton’s own racecourse. Other events on the Kyneton calendar are The Kyneton Musical Festival, the Kyneton Antique Fair and the Kyneton Daffodil & Arts Festival.
For outdoorsy pursuits, wander around the Botanical Gardens or alongside the Campaspe River. Or, pack a picnic and continue the dining al fresco. Fancy a pedal? The Three Towns Scenic Route offers leafy country lanes to cycle down.
