Picturesque Macedon and Hanging Rock in Autumn

in Pinmapplelast year (edited)

I've been here almost 4 seasons. Now autumn is here and with it comes a beautiful sight that is really fascinated me. Well, if I'm asked what is my fav season? It's definitely autumn. Drove one hour from my area in the Seabrook suburbs of Melbourne to Macedon town and here I'm witnessing these stunning autumnal colors in the little town of Macedon. From the red and yellow leaves to the vibrant oranges and browns, I'm really in love with these hues. It's truly a natural wonder of color. This beauty is hard to put into words honestly,

No matter how much I attempted to capture these feelings with something like free-style poem (lol, or not a poem), I think it still failed to do justice to what I experienced in person

Macedon is a little and a picturesque town located in Central Victoria, nestled at the foot of Mount Macedon and surrounded by the Macedon Ranges. Situated between Melbourne and Bendigo along the Calder Freeway, this charming rural location is home some of the most stunning views in Victoria.

If you are in Melbourne now, you should visit the place to see abundance of picturesque sceneries, especially this time when the fall is here- the most beautiful season of the year.

We met those irresistibly cute furry friends...so cutee...who could resist😄They also love having their picture taken and showed off their cuteness, lol

Everyone loved taking photos of autumn leaves in all their vibrant colors. I was no exception, and took more than 100 photos of the autumn scenery but still feeling like it's never enough.


When coming here, don't miss the Honour Avenue. Are you wondering about the name: "Honour Avenue" and here is the answer from the local: "the street was etablished to remmember and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the country.

The avenue of Honour is at its honourable best❤️

This avenue has become a symbol of honour, respect, and gratitude throughout the local community". It's very special and walking alonghere made me to reflect on the bravery and courage of those who gave their lives for our freedom. Respect ❤️

Every angle was captivating and gorgeous in its own way; honestly, I found it it hard to resist taking photo after photo, lol

There was a bit of crowding on the weekend. Even though the weather forecast said rain was on the way, I'm glad it turned out beautiful when we got there. There were no cars allowed on this street, so locals and visitors can stroll along it and enjoy the beauty.

We parked at another street and walked down to Hornoured Avenue


Lined with yellow trees that stretch as far as the eye can see, this road will gave me a feeling of peace and tranquility. As I stood among the trees, admiring the beauty of the autumn leaves, I couldn't help but feel like time had stopped. I didn't want to leave 😀

For many, this is a normal seasonal experience that they have grown up with. But for others, including myself as a girl from a tropical country, the sight of autumnal scenery is breathtakingly beautiful.❤️

Continued the drive to the town's center, we passed by luxurious mansions, sprawling gardens, and winery farm. I was told that here is one of Victoria's most desirable districts and home to many millionaires. No doubt. I can imagine that the locals enjoy life in their own oasis surrounded by beautiful scenery, with plenty of space. I want to retire here in the future 😀

We also passed by "Ash Wednesday", again I was curious about the name because I had no knowledge about the town. It was a sad story to hear and I did a research about what happened. The Ash Wednesday bushfires of 1983 was one of the most devastating natural disasters in Australian history. On February 16th, 1983, a series of massive wildfires spread across Victoria, burning an area of almost 29,500 hectares. The fires caused huge destruction to infrastructure, loss of life and immense suffering for those affected. In total 75 people lost their lives and more than 3,000 homes were destroyed. Credit. What I saw is remarkable and I was amazed how homes were rebuilt, and nature also seemed to be thriving.

I was recommended to visit Forest Glade gardens, Mount Macedon Memorial Cross, Uniting Church, and Hanging Rock. However, I didn't have enough time to tour all of the attractions since we arrived at 1pm. I decided to check out Hanging Rock and it took me 10 mins to drive from Honour Avenue.

It's quiet a tranquil and charming place with a large and inviting green park.

On the left, you will find a cozy cafe shop that serves up delicious treats and beverages.

On your right, there is a discovery center with interesting exhibits about the history of this special place.


Stepped inside and explore the area to uncover fascinating stories about its past and present.

Here the beginning of the trail, it took me 50 mins in return. Dogs are not allowed.

Breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape

It was an easy and short tract to the summit of Hanging Rock.

Do you see me standing on the rock...my shadow? We are quite small compared to this huge expanse of space.

We had the pleasure of walking up to the submit and the panoramic views were simply breathtaking.

We had arrived at such an enchanting place and every corner here was so beautiful and captivating that we wished to stay and admire it for longer. It was getting dark and we had to leave. I really love Macedon and hopefully I will come back here sometimes.

Oh wow, the colors are fabulous! Autumn is my very favorite season and your photos captured it perfectly. It is not surprising that you wish to linger a bit longer, to admire the beauty. I would live there in a heartbeat!

Thanks for your kind words :) I think every one loves autumn :) who could resist such beauty ❤

Hello, nice day, Visiting this location would have been quite the adventure; the view is just amazing. I adore the vibrant photographs you took, which tempt you to go to that wonderful location. Thank you very much for the wonderful information and image collection. Enjoy your day.

Hey, I'm glad you enjoyed as much as I did :) It was such a nice day trip and the location truly stunning :) thanks for visiting and have a good week :)

Autumn is my favorite season as well and I totally feel you when you say why you love it so much. It's ironical how it's the most colorful and beautiful season when the nature slowly dies but that's a good proof that endings can be beautiful :)

Yes love, nice point. I really enjoy the colorful autumn and its nice weather now but with leave ending brings some the cold winter soon that I'm not looking for it. 😂

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead 😘

I'm not a big fan of the winter either 😅
Thanks! Hope you have a lovely week ahead too! 🤗

I love this location, it is absolutely beautiful. Best travelled in Autumn to avoid the hot temperatures while climbing. I can't wait until my youngest is a little older and we can walk to the summit. My 6 yr old loves it.

It's definitely is and I'm in love with the place. Would be nice to retire here, but the houses here must be very expensive, 😂😂 !! I love the vibrant autumn in Victoria, and am planning to visit other town Daylesford, Bright and Yarra Valley when possible as now is really a great time to travel 😊 I met many kangaroos while driving up to Hanging Rock, your daughter will surely love it :) The track is easy unless you're unfit. I alsoet many children with their families, some of them quiet young :)

Wow those are some gorgeous autumn colors. It is so fun to read your excitement for the changes in season. I love it too and miss it. Arizona has hot and hotter! :) I like you want to live somewhere like this! Thanks for sharing this incredible beauty with us.

Sara, I was more than excited 😂 being from the tropical place myself, this is all very different to anything I used to at home and the colour of nature at this time of the year is truly brilliant :)

What a beautiful place!! I’ve never thought some place in Australia was going to look as my city in Mendoza, Argentina. Here we have autumn as well, and the trees look exactly like those you’ve shown in the pictures. Thanks a lot for such a beautiful post, and enjoy the landscape and city!!

Lucky you growing up with such vibrant autumn 🍁 it's beautiful transition of the season from green to brown to no leaves but then in Melbourne sadly come to cold...haha I'm not looking for it :

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead :)

The leaves are beautiful, like sakura but it's orange.
