Railway station to Old Scout Camp trail

1. Macedon Railway Station to Old Scout Camp - 2km, 40 mins, Easy

From the station, walk north along Smith Street and Middle Gully Road to the Old Scout Camp site. Along the way look for native orchids and Kangaroo Grass, widespread before European settlement, but reduced by grazing and early land management practices. Near the Scout Camp is one of the many stone bridges on the Melbourne-Bendigo railway line. The Sunbury to Woodend section was opened in 1861.
