The SpaceFor holidays or business, we welcome you to Destination Kyneton, a 1930's residence that was the Rabbit Trappers home for 35 years. Today, Destination Kyneton is made up of two modern, self-contained apartments, the larger Gallery House and the smaller Harry's House. The year-round location is excellent, right in the heart of old Kyneton, tucked away out of sight behind shops and an hour's easy drive from Melbourne. Both apartments have creature comforts - private courtyards, free car parking on site, cooking facilities, WiFi, smart TV's, reverse cycle air conditioning and electric blankets. Linen, towels and toiletries are included. Guest AccessGuests have full access to The Gallery House apartment. It is self-contained including a full kitchen. Enter down the driveway past the shops and park just outside your courtyard entry to the apartment. We are walking distance to the famous Piper Street foodie zone over the road. The Kyneton Railway Station is just over a kilometre away along Mollison Street. This line goes to Melbourne and Bendigo. Interaction with GuestsWe welcome our guests and have years of local knowledge of this old rural town and the region, if required. The Macedon Ranges scenic drives, local wineries, weekend markets, historical goldfields and nearby old country towns provide a lot for visitors to see and do while based at our centrally-located accommodation. Fresh local produce and top chefs are featured in many Kyneton restaurants - the closest great restaurant is a stone’s throw away from your apartment. International stars are featured in live concerts at nearby Hanging Rock. Also on our property is a bluestone ruin built by Caroline Chisholm in the 1850's originally for the Registry for Births, Deaths and Marriages. Mrs Chisholm, "the immigrant's friend" had 11 shelter sheds built between Port Melbourne and the goldfields around Castlemaine and Bendigo as a safe overnight stay for traveling gold miners and their families, each one days walk apart. The Kyneton shelter was around the corner in Piper Street. Have a walk around Kyneton to view the outstanding bluestone architecture and history from the goldrush era of the 19th century.
