welcome to the
daylesford macedon region’s
Renowned for its cool climate wines, picturesque landscapes, mineral springs, weekend escapes, farmers markets and foodie scenes, Daylesford Macedon’s granitic-to-volcanic soils and moderate rainfall has seen the region fast-become home to a new crop of artisanal, bee-friendly, sustainable flower farms.
With peak flower season running from Spring-through-Summer-to-Autumn, beautiful perfumed blooms abound and include Roses, Peonies, Dahlias, Cosmos, Daffodils, Hellebores, Lavender, Proteas, Ranunculus, Tulips and Sweet Peas as well as foliage, grasses and natives.
Each farm on the Daylesford Macedon Flower Farm Trail map uses sustainable farming practices with as little intervention as possible.
now, ain’t that Blooming wonderful!
To celebrate the arrival of Spring 2019, Consortium Botanicus is proud to launch their inaugural flower farm trail MAP. A work in progress, it is designed to offer visitors to the Macedon Daylesford region a way to find and enjoy unique floral experiences; from on-farm luxury farmhouse “slowstay” accommodation, to workshops, tours, quaint road-side stalls and direct DIY farm gate sales for weddings, events and home.
The online MAP below shows you the location of the participating flower farms. For a brief summary of out what each farm offers, simply click on a flower icon within the map. For more details, such as how to book accommodation, buy workshop tickets and opening hours, click on a farm’s specific logo, beneath the map.
We hope you’ll return again and again to the region to experience each farm’s offerings throughout their flower season.
Fancy a luxurious mindful weekend away at a flower farm, or partaking in a floral workshop, need to source DIY flowers for your wedding or event, want to spend an afternoon with friends enjoying a picnic in a Peony paddock or meandering down country lanes to buy a bunch of fresh-harvested blooms straight from a charming road-side stall, then find out which of these is on offer at each of the farms below by clicking on their logo and start planning your floral weekend away.
