Located on the Great Dividing Range, Trentham’s main claim to fame is the magical Trentham Falls, Victoria’s highest single-drop waterfall. The historic township also punches well above its weight in the high quality eating and drinking stakes, even for a region as gourmet-obsessed as Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges.
Trentham is a small town with gold, timber, farming and even manufacturing in its past, and fine food in its present. Tantalise your tastebuds with bread baked in an historic oven, a gastro-pub with heritage gardens, providores, an orchard and olive grove, and more.
There’s no missing the majestic Trentham Falls, Victoria’s highest single-drop waterfall. Take a picnic and enjoy it by the river to the sound of the thundering falls. Hikers are spoilt by the quality and number of walking tracks in the surrounding forest. For impressive and panoramic views of Mount Macedon, the You Yangs and the Dandenong Ranges drive to Blue Mount or McLaughlins lookouts in Wombat State Forest, or explore by foot or on horseback.
Trentham is approximately 95 kilometres from Melbourne, or about one hour and 15 minutes by car along the Calder Freeway.
