Get the right kind of lost at Little Wren Cottage, nestled in the heart of Picnic at Hanging Rock country. Mysterious in the movie, the Macedon Ranges sets the romantically dreamy and otherworldly scene perfectly in real life. Set on a 40-acre hobby farm, where native bush meets rolling hills, the cosy cottage has been lovingly restored to capture the magic and mood of the landscape. As morning mist gives way to sun shining through French doors, lounge in the lush linens of the queen bed, enjoying both the view and brekkie – fresh farm goodies supplied – without leaving. Roam the farm by day saying hello to wildlife and friendly farm animals; pluck fresh mushrooms from the forest; or pack a picnic with local delights for basking in the fields. Hikers can take to the private bushland around the property, uncovering secret billabongs, or find solace (and adventure) in the likes of Macedon Regional Park or Mt Charlie National Reserve. Of course, this is also wine country and Little Wren Cottage is within 10 minutes’ drive of the region’s best wineries. With a bottle or two in tow, make your way to the fireplace or firepit as the sun sinks on Kerrie Valley views and your good fortunes.
