With views to the Macedon Ranges and surrounding rural landscape, this little hamlet offers historic architecture and a relaxed country attitude.
Riddells Creek is a compact township located 50km north-west of Melbourne near the foothills of the Macedon Ranges. It is surrounded by culturally significant landscapes including the Woiwurrung and Wurundjeri creeks.
Riddells Creek contains heritage buildings and two historic bluestone railway bridges. It was originally settled by John Carre Riddell and Thomas Ferrier Hamilton in 1841, when they purchased around 640 acres of land and leased another 2,000 acres.

Its wide country streets, exotic treed avenues and lush green parklands invite visitors and locals to enjoy a slice of country life.
Riddells Creek has a primary school, and a railway station on the Melbourne-Bendigo line. Council facilities include:
