Embracing Winter in Victoria
If you are after that special place for a winter getaway with family or friends, then look no further than the luxurious Lawson Lodge at the foothills of Mount Macedon.

Only a short 45-minute drive from Melbourne CBD, you will find yourself in the mystical world of the Macedon Ranges. Food, wine, art and culture are celebrated with festivals and local markets within this captivating region. Visit an award-winning garden, sip on a locally produced Italian sparkling wine and connect with Macedon Village life, all while staying at the exclusive Lawson Lodge.

Over sixty-eight acres of breathtaking surrounds, Lawson Lodge beams country charm. This sophisticated leisure retreat is ideal for group getaways, and organising family gatherings/reunions, birthdays, Christmas parties or friends/ladies' weekends away are a breeze at Lawson Lodge. Hospitable staff can recommend tailor-made itineraries, including onsite massages, fitness sessions and pilates/yoga retreats. Furthermore, Lawson Lodge is ideal for corporate bookings. Team building business retreats include all the incredible facilities of the property including the private board room overlooking the lake and golf course as well as the larger conference room with catering or self-catering options. Welcome valued clients or host your own company's convention at this sophisticated property at the foothills of Mount Macedon. There's no better way to do business!

Catch a fish in the lake...

With an abundance of recreational facilities, you may not want to venture out and explore the picturesque surroundings or cute country towns! A nine-hole lush golf course encases the lodge and is home to many cute two-legged bouncing local spectators and other native wildlife! Enjoy the peace and quiet and revel in having a golf course all to yourself. If golf is not your scene, the lodge offers a grass tennis court, basketball court and petanque/bocce area. Alternatively, catch a fish in one of the lakes or dams on the property which hold redfin, silver perch and yellow belly, and cook yourself up a delicious barbecued fish for dinner.

Alternatively, if the weather is not in your favour, there are many indoor activities to keep you entertained at Lawson Lodge. Warm-up by the wood fire in the sports lounge of the Club House, where a full kitchen is provided if you wish to self-cater any meals. Complete with a grand billiard table, television and wall to wall sporting memorabilia, the sports lounge is a fantastic place to get together and unwind. Additionally, sit back and relax in your own private 36 seat movie cinema, complete with large projector screen, Foxtel channels and an extensive DVD range of movies. Original vintage seats from Melbourne's historic Camberwell Cinema and comfy recliner chairs give an authentic Gold Class feel to this theatre room. All you need is popcorn! Or soak away the stress of the day by the open fire, in a massive eight-seat spa in the secluded gazebo.
