Gisborne combines new and old seamlessly with its centre brimming with  restaurants and cafés, wine bars and boutiques,  while the wide streets of mature oaks, heritage buildings and country homesteads speak of a bustling past.

gisborne.jpgGisborne has a wealth of open spaces with continuous parklands that hug Jacksons Creek for bike riding or walking. Kids will enjoy the adventure playground and the modern aquatic centre. The town’s Botanic Gardens are distinct from the other formal gardens in the region with contemporary design and the inclusion of many New Zealand native plants.

Sample fresh local produce and award winning wines in the deli’s and cafés that dot the town or drive beyond the town limits to find a selection of goods for sale at farm gates.

Particular highlights include a selection of excellent cool climate wineries where you may enjoy a bite to eat while relaxing at a table overlooking vine strung hills. Wood fired pizza is offered at Gisborne Peak Winery on weekends.

Time your visit to coincide with the Gisborne markets which are held on the first Sunday of the month throughout the year, where you will find a fantastic selection of crafts, food and clothing.

The recently Gisborne Golf Club, with stunning views across the Ranges, offers golfers the opportunity to use every club in the bag, while the streets buzz with vintage cars at the annual flag-off for the Macedon Ranges Grand Tour in Autumn.
