07 /11/ 2014 Comments are Closed

Victoria’s peak tourism industry body has encouraged Rolling Stones fans to take the opportunity to enjoy the array of cultural, culinary and natural attractions the Macedon Ranges region has to offer this week, despite the cancellation of the band’s concert.

“People planning a weekend in the beautiful Macedon Ranges can still enjoy so many wonderful restaurants, galleries, national parks and golf courses and we encourage them to take this opportunity to explore the region,” said Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) Chief Executive Dianne Smith.

Attractions include:

·         Boutique wine cellar doors and fresh farm produce shops

·         Restaurants and cafes serving the finest local produce

·         Specialist art galleries

·         Six public golf courses

·         The picturesque Macedon Regional Park, Hanging Rock, Lerdederg Gorge State Park and the Cobaw Ranges

The area also boasts diverse wildlife, including more than 200 species of birds and a wide variety of mammals, including koalas, kangaroos, swamp wallabies, wombats, possums and gliders.

Ms Smith’s comments followed the rock band’s sudden cancellation of a scheduled concert this weekend due to a band member’s illness.

VTIC commended the Macedon Ranges Shire Council in working to ensure the detrimental impact of the cancellation on local industry was minimised.
