Mount Macedon

Mount Macedon in Winter
The Macedon Ranges are famous for their views, native forests, wildlife, historic monuments and, perhaps foremost, their substantial homes and garden flower displays in Spring. At the western end of the range, the 2427 hectare Macedon Regional Park dominates the skyline.

The towns of Macedon and Mount Macedon are well known for their exotic trees, gracious homes and gardens.

The small township of Mount Macedon has a General Store, Pub, Church, Art Gallery, Antique Shop and a plant nursery. The day this photo was taken the wind chill factor would have been on a par with Antarctica - it was freezing.

Beautiful countryside. But I cannot believe there were Antarctic conditions. Is there snow anywhere in Australia?

We do get snow in the alpine areas - in the high country. For example Mt. Buller, Mt. Baw Baw. Travelling from Strahan on the west coast of Tasmanie through the Derwent Vallwy and Central Highlands last Friday night, there was snow falling - quite a sight as we don't have snow in Melbourne.
