Mount Macedon

Mount Macedon is a rural and residential locality east of the Mount Macedon summit, 60 km north-west of Melbourne.

The mount was named by the New South Wales Surveyor-General, Thomas Mitchell, on his return journey from Victoria's Western District, 'Australia Felix'. The inspiration for the name was apparently through Phillip II, the ruler of Macedon (359-336BC). (At the same time a name was given to the coastal, Port Phillip, bay which Mitchell saw from the summit.)
