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.
