This Intrepid Drive takes you through the very best of the Macedon and Daylesford regions. You’ll discover the nature and history of Hanging Rock and Trentham Falls along the way, as well as the villages of Kyneton, Trentham and Daylesford. You meet five amazing local producers too.
Our Intrepid Drive starts on the Calder Freeway near the Calder Park Motor Racing Circuit, but we don't spend long on the freeway. Instead we head off on country roads – with a couple of graded but unsealed sections – to discover the finest local produce and the stories behind the producers.
You'll get all the directions you need once you’re en route, included in the commentary, which plays automatically as you drive along. There are fuel and food stops available along the way in Kyneton, Trentham or the finish point of Daylesford, where we encourage you to take the time to do some of your own exploring and maybe track down some of the tips our locals have given you.
This is intended an all day experience, and the 120 minutes displayed by VoiceMap is just an approximate driving time. It doesn't include all the stops along the way, which are an essential part of the overall experience. You're welcome to end and resume the tour at any point.
The other option is to pair your Intrepid Drive with a stay along the way in either Kyneton, Trentham or Daylesford where there are lots of character-filled options for all budgets.
