Kyneton is known for its artisanal culture and hospitality. With numerous options for wining and dining; a variety of workshops on offer from chair-making to salami; concept shopping on Piper Street and beautiful walks and rides around town. We hope you enjoy exploring it as much as we do.
Please note, we also have guides and itineraries for travelling to nearby towns, including Castlemaine, Trentham and Malmsbury. Feel free to ask us if you would like help in planning an adventure, a winery tour or special surprise. We love exploring the Macedon Ranges and Goldfields and would be delighted to share our secrets.
Take a trip to Kyneton to soak in the springtime sunshine and some great music at the Kyneton Music Festival this October. On Friday October 25 and Saturday October 26, Kyneton’s iconic Piper Street will become awash with food trucks and music as the festival takes over.
Spring is when the country and country racing comes alive, with racing, food and fashion so join the thousands who descend on the Kyneton Racecourse for a great day out. The Kyneton Racecourse is often referred to as the “prettiest” country racecourse in Victoria, due to the picturesque landscape and the beautiful established elm trees, which line the track.
The Kyneton Agricultural Show has been going since 1858 but the Kyneton Agricultural Show has plenty of new additions to appeal to twenty-first century kids. Find out who’s won Kyneton Best in Show as the pavilion opens Friday night with hot competition in cooking, craft, farm produce, flowers, photography and more.
ABOUT THIS GUIDE
What better way to discover a country town than from the vantage point of a bicycle and with tips from locals on the best the town has to offer. While this guide was originally created for our guests, we soon realised that it would also suit day-trippers or anyone wanting to explore Kyneton by bike. With an exquisite array of historical buildings scattered throughout town, picturesque country scenes, a gently undulating river and loads of dreamy picnic sites, cycling is by far the best way to explore Kyneton.
If you are traveling from Melbourne, board a Bendigo-bound V/Line train with your bike at Southern Cross and you’ll be exploring the sights shown on this map in just over an hour’s time. To access the latest timetable click here
Whilst we advocate a leisurely approach to touring, it’s possible to complete the entire ride in less than an hour. This leaves plenty of time for eating, drinking and shopping!
