Join knowledgeable Parks Victoria volunteers as you relax and explore the Sanatorium Eco Trail in Macedon Regional Park.

This approximately 3km trail will take you along a circuit through beautiful forest and past the picturesque historic Sanatorium Lake. Learn about the plants and animals , as well as some of the history of the park. This beautiful trail is popular with photographers, so remember your camera!

You can join this walk as a once-off to explore somewhere new, or include it as a regular part of your wellbeing or fitness routine to build up your hiking skills.

The walk takes approximately 1.5 hours and is a moderate level trail, with some hills and uneven terrain. The meeting point is at Days Picnic Ground carpark off Lionshead Road. There is a toilet at the picnic ground.

Wear appropriate clothing, including warm clothes and a rain coat. Enclosed walking shoes such as sneakers or hiking boots are essential due to the uneven terrain.
