Autumn visitors

Macedon and Mount Macedon are well-known hotspots for autumnal colour, and now attract large volumes of visitors during autumn. 

Council continues to work with VicRoads, Victoria Police and the community to manage the influx of visitors during this time, with a focus on providing a safe and enjoyable environment while minimising the impact to residents.   

Autumn 2020 plans

Planning for autumn 2020 is now underway. In December 2019, residents businesses of Macedon and Mount Macedon were invited to two drop in sessions, to share their ideas for 2020 and provide feedback on the management of previous years. Both sessions were well attended and officers are now considering the feedback to finalise the management plan for 2020.

At this stage we are planning to implement management measures on weekends and public holidays between 28 March–26 April 2020. Residents of Macedon and Mount Macedon will receive a letter with the updated management measures in February. Further updates will also be provided on this page and on as details are confirmed.
