Genevieve Wearne is the Chief Concierge for the Flop House portfolio of nine luxurious local lodgings in Victoria’s Macedon Ranges and Goldfields. We asked her for an insider’s guide to Kyneton…

Your most popular request…

The most popular request from guests is to borrow bikes to do a tour of the town. We provide complimentary Tokyo Bikes and a tailored guide to Kyneton to discover Kyneton from the vantage point of a bike or by foot.

Your favourite locale when enjoying a day off…

On my day off I like visiting Hamster Cafe on High Street. It is a vegetarian and whole foods cafe that serves extremely tasty food and is a good place to enjoy a healthy meal and some local news.

Best coffee…

I like Little Swallow and Monsieur Pierre.

Where must we go for lunch…

If I am really spoiling myself I would go to Midnight Starling and enjoy incredible French food and wine.

If it’s a rainy day outside but we want to explore, what shall we do…

The Kyneton museum is fantastic and provides a really good brief history of the town from its “discovery” by squatters in 1838.

What is an absolute must-do or must-see before leaving Kyneton…

The Campaspe River Walk and Kyneton Botanical Gardens.

Anything else you’d like to share with our readers to encourage them to visit Kyneton…

The town is bigger than Piper Street and the two other main streets. Mollison and High Street are worth exploring. You can also easily get here by train and explore by bike or foot so cars are not necessary.
