Description

Macedon's Honour Avenue has become an Autumnal mecca for those chasing beautiful photos and portraits for social media. Of course the towering Pin Oaks were originally planted to honour the men and women from the region who enlisted in World War 1 and for those interested in the history there are some memorials at the Mount Macedon Road end of the Avenue.

Please note: Cars are not permitted to pull over along Honour Avenue between 9am and 5pm. There is a car park located at Centenntial Park but it can quickly fill during popular times. For information about a free shuttle bus service that operates in April from Macedon train station on weekends and public holidays see this link.
