Nulla Vale: Where To Go / Sightseeing
Lyons Will Estate
Exactly one hour north of Melbourne ??and 550 metres above sea level, Lyons Will Estate is a cool climate winery located in the Macedon Ranges.
Family owned and with ingrained European roots Lyons Will Estate aim to produce wines that ring true to this stunning and rare environment, that is the beauty of the Macedon Ranges.?? Their ethos is simple 'take care of the land and the land will take care of the plants'.
Lyons Will Estate was established in 1996 with its first plants being Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Since then the estate has grown in size to include Gamay and Riesling, making the total area under vine just over 10 acres.
Lyons Will Estate think they have a pretty special patch. All their blocks are hand pruned, hand groomed and hand-picked, ensuring the best quality possible from bud-burst to picking. You can sample the wines at their cellar door, open by appointment.
For more information about Lyons Will Estate and the cellar door visit their website or contact them to make a booking for their cellar door.

Hanging Rock Winery
Hanging Rock Winery was established in 1983 in the beautiful Macedon Ranges.
The Hanging Rock region is full of scenic splendours, none better than the Rock itself. From the Hanging Rock Winery's hillside tasting room there's a great view of this geological curiosity in the forest, with the imposing hillside of Mount Macedon behind it.
Hanging Rock Winery have a picnic area on their lawns in front of the cellar door, great for couples and families.
The cellar door offering includes over 20 wines covering most styles and varieties.
The winery has recently launched its new venture, Hanging Rock Beef. The meat is grown on the property and the family pride themselves on the ethical nature in which the animals are handled and fed. The meat is now available through cellar door.
"Hanging Rock's wines include the Macedon sparkling wine, uncompromisingly made with an eye to the great traditional Champagne houses of France, the brisk Jim Jim Sauvignon Blanc, and the outstanding Heathcote Shiraz." Review by Ralph Kyte-Powell.

Monument Hill Reserve
Located an hour north of Melbourne in Kilmore, Monument Hill Reserve is a fantastic recreational area perfect for activities such as bush-walking and horse riding.
Situated at the top of the Hill is the Hume and Hovell monument. This was erected to honour the explorers whose expedition played a significant role in establishing the colony of Victoria. The monument is a watchtower from the former Kilmore Gaol. From the top of the monument visitors can look out over Kilmore and the surrounding countryside.
From the monument, follow one of the walking tracks that leads down the ridge to the golf course, cricket club or Kilmore Hospital Reservoir. Local wildlife is abundant. Lizards, birds, echidnas, kangaroos and wallabies can be spotted around the reserve.
