Driving from Melbourne, follow the Calder Freeway and take exit C322 to Mt Macedon. Once you are off the freeway follow Mt Macedon Road toward MOUNT Macedon (as opposed to Macedon). After driving through Mt Macedon, Forest Glade is on the right hand side – look for the rainbow flags and be sure to park safely and clear of the white line on the side of the road.
