Overview

Kyneton

Wellbeing, fine food and history go hand in hand in Kyneton, a gold rush village that offers the best of country living with the sophistication of the city. Once a place of rest for miners on the way to the Bendigo goldfields, Kyneton now boasts a tempting array of renowned restaurants, wineries and cafes, day spas, boutiques and cultural festivals.

Piper Street and beyond

Linger on Piper Street, a modern-day gourmand’s paradise long known for its heritage buildings and antique dealers.

Celebrate local, seasonal produce at Source Dining, hatted by the Good Food Guide or treat yourself to French-bistro style fare at Midnight Starling. Find wood-fired goodness at Pizza Verde and pub grub classics at the Royal George Hotel. For take-away gourmet goods, the Piper Street Food Company Picnic Shop is your one-stop French charcuterie and picnic provisions shop. Round out your ramble with a small-batch, handcrafted gin at Animus Distillery’s lounge and cellar door.

Check out the inspiring work of local designers and pick up something for home at galleries and boutiques, including Stockroom, Macedon Ranges Interiors, Mollisons, The Persian Room, and No Town Outfitters.

Natural springs and day spas

The Kyneton, Daylesford, Hepburn Springs region is home to the largest concentration of natural mineral springs in Australia. Fill your bottles at the old pump and picnic under the rotunda at Kyneton Mineral Springs Reserve or opt for a more tailored rest and rejuvenation experience at Ellenis or the Maiaveda Holistic Day Spa.

Bluestone beauties and river views

Wander along nineteenth-century granite streets lined with bluestone architecture on Piper and Mollison Streets. Spot stately bluestone churches, primary schools and railway stations. Grab a small piece of history at a local antiques shop, or find out more at heritage-listed Kyneton Museum.

Bring your bike to town and pedal down leafy country lanes on the Three Towns Scenic Route, enjoy bushwalking in Black Hill Reserve or explore the historic botanic gardens, established in 1858. Make the most of Kyneton’s vantage point on the Campaspe River.

Bumper calendar

Kyneton boasts a packed calendar of community and cultural events throughout the year. Stock up on fresh, seasonal produce at the farmers’ market on Piper Street the second Saturday of each month and cheer on your favourite horse at the Kyneton Cup.

Live it up at The Kyneton Music Festival and the Taste of Kyneton festival in summer and peek into the world of traditional and rare trades at the Lost Trades Fair in March. Swing by in spring for the Kyneton Antique Fair and Kyneton Daffodil & Arts Festival.
