Flop House was established in 2013 to welcome visitors to the Macedon Ranges and central Victorian goldfields region with an offering of good design and access to local produce. I am a Kyneton local and very pleased to be able to offer tips on things to do and see in the area.

Leisure At Loddon Falls

Discovered by Andrew & Jessie
We set off to Loddon Falls, which came by recommendation from a friend. When we arrived there wasn’t a soul in sight. It was a beautiful spring day and the short walk to the swimming hole seemed lovely. Andy recently broke his foot so unfortunately, we were a bit immobile on this journey but the views and scenic drive did not disappoint....

Views For Days At Mount Tarrengower

Discovered by Andrew & Jessie
We spent the afternoon leisurely exploring the lay of the land. We visited Tarrengower lookout tower with a beautiful 360 view of fields of yellow and many shades of green, just a short climb up three sets of stairs to get you there. You can drive right to the parking lot, it's a piece of cake and a great place to enjoy lunch....

Nature Stroll In The Botanic Gardens

If you have little ones that need to get their monkey energy out, there's a lovely playground and massive field to run around on. It was hard to come home to the city after such a restful stay in the country....

A Bite Of Quiet Time

When the city gets to be a little too loud it’s time to pack the bags and set out for the trees. The lesser-known diamond in the rough, Chewtown, is not far from popular Kyneton. A quick hour and twenty drive and we arrived up a ...
