Trentham is a very special township nestled at the very top of the Great Dividing Range mid-way between Woodend and the Spa Country of Daylesford, approximately one hour from Melbourne.
The town’s location in between the Macedon Ranges and the Spa Country at the edge of the Wombat State Forest makes it the perfect base to explore the many attractions of these areas. Trentham is only a stones throw from all the sites and experiences this renowned region has to offer.
Within a twenty-minute radius lay the wonderful towns of Daylesford, Hepburn Springs, Kyneton, Woodend and Mount Macedon. Slightly further afield are the historic goldfields towns of Castlemaine, Malmsbury, Maldon, Ballarat and Bendigo. From bushwalking, hiking or picnicking in the Wombat State Forest and Lerderderg State Park, galleries, antiques, nurseries, wineries, cafes, award-winning restaurants, country pubs, markets and festivals, enough experiences to fill a day, weekend or even a month. Play a round of golf or view the magnificent waterfall.
Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend in the country indulging in the many gourmet delights and wines offered by the region, or more active outdoor pursuits like riding or bushwalking in the Wombat State Forest, Trentham has it all!
