Depart Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges feeling rejuvenated and loaded up with goodies to keep that holiday buzz and sense of vitality alive a little longer. Take home fresh, seasonal produce from farm gates and provedores, pick up vintage collectibles and stylish homewares to liven up that tired space at home, or ignite your creative spark with art from a local gallery or studio.
Delve into the region's creative community and explore the countless art galleries displaying local paintings, sculptures and jewellery. Come on the right day and you might be lucky enough to meet the artist and find a unique souvenir.
Daylesford boasts the Convent, Clayfire and Stony Creek galleries as well as the art/design hub of Bromley & Co. Call past small workshops or market stalls on your way to the Malmsbury's Tin Shed Arts and Woodbine Gallery, Lancefield's Mad Gallery, and The Gallery Mt Macedon.
Curios, collectibles and beautiful boutiques
Try walking down any main street in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges without venturing into a second-hand and collectible book store or an antique shop filled with furniture, silverware and china. Pick up contemporary homewares and handicrafts to complement your 'new' vintage pieces.
Browse the antique stores in Kyneton's Piper Street, and linger in the strip's homewares and gift stores. Get the props for a country life from Country Habit, gentlemen's essentials at No Town Outfitters, and slaver over beautiful objects at Emporium and Kabinett on Piper.
