Your day will start in the homestead at Woodlands Historic Park with a generous sized scone served with your choice of coffee or tea.  We recommend you not to overindulge at breakfast on the morning of your tour, you'll want to save room for your scone!

After morning tea you will have time to explore the homestead / museum before you tour of Living Legends, also within Woodlands Historic Park.  Living Legends is home to some favourite retired champion race horses such as Fields of Omagh, Silent Witness, Better Loosen Up, Rogan Josh, Apache Cat, Brew, Paris Lane, Efficient and his old mate Zipping.  Plus recent additions include Prince of Penzance, All Times Lucky, Who Shot Thebarman (NZ), Redkirk Warrior (GB) and Peniaphobia (IRE), Fawkner, Almandin and Tom Melbourne.  On the tour you will get to meet, pat and feed the horses.  If you're lucky, you'll even get to watch the local kangaroos in their natural environment.

We then head up the road to Holgate Brewery, a country pub with a range of classic beer styles, full in flavour and rich in character. See a microbrewery in action at the hotel.  Staff will lead you through tasting a range of beers on offer at Holgate before serving a classic pub lunch. Afterwards you'll have time to explore the brewery and taphouse, meander down the main street of beautiful Woodend or sit by the fire / in the beer garden and enjoy another brew.

Our final stop of the day is at the award winning Hanging Rock Winery where you will sample their favourite wines and enjoy the glorious Macedon Ranges views.

All beers and wines tasted are available for takeaway purchase.  However, please note that alcohol cannot be consumed while in our bus.
