Kyneton - Cities, Towns and Localities
Famous for its spectacular bluestone architecture, mineral springs, the meandering Campaspe River, botanic gardens and historic houses, Kyneton is located on the Calder Highway about mid-way between Melbourne and Bendigo, in the Victorian Macedon Ranges.

The volcanic geology of the surrounding region meant that the district produced an inexhaustible supply of bluestone, which was used to build many of the town's structure. Five churches were build of the local stone, some of which was quarried at the actual building sites. Many of the bluestone buildings can be seen today.

Another star attraction for Kyneton was the discovery of the mineral springs at the Boggy Creek in 1890, which revealed an abundance of quality mineral water.
 

Spring heralds the start of the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival, with the main approaches to Kyneton lined with daffodils in bloom.
