What to do this Autumn in Kyneton

In Autumn, the Macedon Ranges comes into its own in spectacular fashion and one of its major towns, Kyneton, is no exception. The transition from the lingering warmth of summer to crisper days is perfect for walks in bushland, visits to obliging markets and events, and of course, the viewing of deciduous tree-lined streets and the increasing vibrant abundance of fallen leaves in autumnal shades.

Check out the Kyneton Farmers’ Market, with all its regular fare and much more. From fruit and vegetables to flowers, jams, wines and piping hot goodies from a variety of food trucks and stalls, it is an extra special way to shop on the second Saturday of the month.

The Kyneton Horticultural Society’s annual Kyneton Autumn Flower Show is on the first and second of April and invites flower enthusiasts to showcase their best displays. A $5 admission fee will allow you to enjoy a flower show of a different ilk in the opposite season we are accustomed to.

The Puppy Pride event at the Kyneton Botanic Gardens on Sunday 10 April is another not to be missed event, especially for those with furry friends. Enter your dog into the ‘Fashions on the Fur’ competition, peruse the pride-themed market stalls with your pooch, or join the group walk of humans and canines at 11.30 am.

If you are up for an event in the evening, dodge the Melbourne crowds and enjoy the Comedy Festival Roadshow at Kyneton Town Hall. Settle in for a hilarious night in this historic building.

Finally, Kyneton also has guided walks that are perfect to enjoy in the mild autumn weather and to appreciate the changing of the seasons. Whether you walk the famous Piper Street or the Kyneton Historic Trail in the town, stroll along the Campaspe Riverwalk, or check out the beautiful rugged bushland of Black Hill Reserve, there are plenty of reasons to get out in the fresh air in Kyneton this Autumn.
