A cultural hotspot and a city with a real buzz, Melbourne is a great place for an entertaining and exciting holiday. But everyone tires of the bright lights at some stage, the crowds become a bit much and we start to long for a bit of fresh air. Melbourne is situated so that there are any number of nearby spots you can visit, but when deciding on where to go be sure not to overlook the Macedon Ranges.
The Macedon Ranges are just an hours drive out of Melbourne in your motorhome, making them the perfect option for a daytrip or a night away. There are numerous accommodation options here with the Great Dividing Range and central highlands as a backdrop, so you will feel miles away from the big city lights. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere is compounded by the friendly and laid back locals, and chances are you will end up parking your campervan hire Melbourne for longer than you expected to take in the sights and scenery of the region.
The many wineries and farmsteads in the region lend it a rustic charm that is typical of country Australia. The wines are world class, so dont miss calling in at wineries such as Cope Williams or Mount Macedone to sample some of the local wares and enjoy their on site eateries. When driving around in your campervan hire you will pass many sights typical of the region such as cosy cottages, beautifully manicured gardens and stately homesteads. The Ranges are also famous for their amazing views of the countryside and their thick native forests that are home to hordes of local Australian wildlife.
